Test and measurement manufacturer Sunrise Telecom Inc. www.sunrisetelecom.com  today introduced the XTT 5000, a lightweight field test system is designed to speed successful installation and maintenance of carrier-grade Ethernet and Internet Protocol (IP) services.

 

For the first time, field technicians can use a single test system for installation and maintenance of both 1 GigE and 10 GigE networks, the company said in a release.

 

“The delivery of video services to residential users and enterprises, along with the increasing number of residential and mobile wireless services subscribers, is accelerating the demand for Ethernet bandwidth and Quality of Service,” said Prathima Bommakanti, senior research analyst of test and measurement at Frost & Sullivan.

 

“This trend is likely to be a strong driving force behind the future success of the Ethernet test equipment market.”

 

The XTT 5000 can perform simultaneous and independent tests at full line rates over its three test ports for 10/100 Mbit, 1 GigE and 10 GigE.

 

Additionally, advanced traffic generation up to Layer 4, including stacked VLAN (Q-in-Q) and MPLS, enables thorough testing of wholesale as well as retail Ethernet deployments.

 

 

“Top tier communications service providers are severely constrained by dwindling CapEx and OpEx budgets, yet their customers demand state-of-the-art services and performance,” said Bahaa Moukadam, Sunrise Telecom’s vice president of marketing.
