The VIAVI ONT Multiport Test Module (MTM) design provides unparalleled value with support for multiple Layers 1 to 3 protocols at 155 Mbps to 11.3 Gbps rate port rates. These unique benefits reduce CapEx and OpEx because our customers no longer have to purchase, manage, and maintain multiple tests sets to perform these functions.
The MTM supports multiport testing with four SFP/SFP+/XFP port banks. Each port bank supports one test, enabling up to four concurrent test sessions. This flexibility enables each user to generate/analyze traffic over a broad range of protocols and line rates.
The MTM also provides unparalleled value with comprehensive protocol coverage that includes the optical transport network (OTN), Gigabit Ethernet (GE)/10 GE local area network (LAN), Generic Framing Procedure (GFP), Fiber Channel (FC), and synchronous optical/synchronous digital hierarchy (SONET/SDH) technologies. It enables generating, analyzing, and selectively erroring protocol-based and unframed test traffic. For OTN testing, users can configure OTN framed clients as LAN, GFP, SONET/SDH, ODU0, ODUflex, or bulk payloads. Full client signal features are maintained when wrapped in OTN. Standard connectivity options supported while connected to a device under test are Terminal, Intrusive Through, and Nonintrusive Through modes.
The MTM is available as a stand-alone configuration or as a hot-swappable plug-in module. The stand-alone configuration is a compact, stackable 1-RU form factor known as the ONT-601 MTM-B. The plug-in MTM is for use in the ONT-804/812 chassis series and enables scalability of up to 48 SFP/SFP+/XFP test ports within an ONT-812 chassis.
