ONT Optical Network Tester Family

Highly configurable, multi-application and multi-port platform for system verification and acceptance testing.

Overview

High-speed testing for high-speed optical networks

The modular design of the ONT-600 platform offers high flexibility and lets users operate multiple test modules simultaneously. The ONT-600 comes in a variety of mainframes and application modules, ranging from “single-port” point tools up to a full 19” rack-mounted multi-slot, multi-port and multi-user solution that satisfies sophisticated SVT needs.

Benefits

All application modules share the same GUI and identical automation and scripting, so that they can be used throughout the product development cycles.

Applications

  • Detailed hardware level testing with unframed and protocol based traffic.
  • 25G, 50G, 100G and 400G Optical Modules validation: electrical lanes stressing (clock offset variation, TX pre-emphasis and RX equalization manipulation, dynamic skew) per IEEE standards, MDIO/I2C management interface verification (peek/poke, HW pins control, MDIO/I2C Dump)
  • Support for OTN, Ethernet, Fibre Channel, CPRI, and SONET/SDH
  • Qualify PTP (IEEE 1588) implementations in optical networks and equipment
  • Full service disruption and latency measurements for all supported technologies
  • Equipment Manufacturers: Support for R&D, SVT (system verification/test), and production environments covering the entire product life cycle
  • Service Providers: Conduct product qualification and benchmark testing before deployments and bring to the field for first office applications (FOA)
  • Data Centers: Fully verify data center interconnect elements and long-haul transmission elements for quality and performance and fully stress and verify pluggable optics including active optical cables.

Key Features

  • Multiple mainframe options including rackmount, desktop, and modules with built-in display for mobile test needs.
  • Supports testing of all major transport technologies for equipment manufacturers, service providers, and data centers
  • OTN: up to OTU4 with ODU Muxing down to ODU0; ODUflex, ODU multichannel, and FlexO
  • Ethernet: Gigabit Ethernet up to 400 GE and FlexE fully supported with full stress/margin analysis
  • SDH/SONET: 155 Mbps up to 40G
  • Fibre Channel: 1/2/4/8/10/16G FC
  • CPRI unframed and framed testing: CPRI line bit rate option 1 (614.40 Mbps) up to option 9 (12.165 Gbps)
  • Most accurate latency and service disruptions measurements for OTN, Ethernet, CPRI, Fibre Channel, and SONET/SDH
  • Browser-oriented graphical user interface (GUI)
  • Full multitasking operation
  • Full automation support via CLI or with drivers and libraries for LabWindows CVI, LabView, Python and Tcl/Tk
