JDSU has introduced Enterprise Services Application Module (ESAM) for the T-BERD/MTS-4000, providing range of enterprise test capabilities for IT organisations that maintain ethernet/IP local area networks and require a tool to enable technicians to isolate and resolve network issues, which reduces network downtime, lost productivity and associated costs.
Coupled with JDSU workflow-based intuitive user interface, the ESAM provides physical media tests including speed-certification of electrical ethernet cabling, network connectivity tests, discovery, wire-speed deep-packet statistics, and wire-speed protocol capture and expert analysis using J-Mentor capabilities.
In addition, the ESAM is part of the modular T-BERD/MTS-4000 platform allowing additional test capability that includes fibre and copper cable certification, WiFi testing, VoIP emulation, IP video testing, optical power measurements, visual fault location and fibre connector inspection to IEC standards.
According to JDSU, the T-BERD/MTS-4000 ESAM’s packet-level detail capabilities are enabled by cPacket Networks. cPacket’s technology allows real-time analysis of packet headers and payload data at 100% wire speed. Its algorithms and chip architecture support on-the-fly inspection of every bit in every packet at full-line rate, including conditions such as 100% minimum size packets.
The cPacket also supports microsecond accurate analysis of network traffic spikes and micro bursts that can cause intermittent congestion and applications performance issues, the company said.
Jim Nerschook, vice president and general manager of communications test and measurement business segment at JDSU, said: JDSU designed the ESAM to address the full range of requirements for troubleshooting today’s enterprise networks with a suite of tests ranging from physical media tests to line-rate packet capture and everything in-between.
As a module for the highly expandable JDSU T-BERD/MTS-4000 test platform, the ESAM also offers customers continuous return on investment and is the latest addition to the JDSU portfolio of award-winning, easy-to-use test and measurement offerings.
