Digital Lightwave Inc. has upgraded its NIC platform to offer test solution for fibre channel services over OTN. This enables customers to test fibre channel services delivered over high-speed OTN networks. The optical networking test equipment solutions provider also announced the ability to measure the performance of 10Gbit/s fibre channel across OTN transport links.

The company's Multi-Service Analyser series of modules (MSA 2020 and MSA 2030), featuring test options for SONET/SDH, OTN, Ethernet, fibre channel and NGN technologies such as virtual concatenation, GFP and LCAS, now also has the 10Gbit fibre channel over OTN test option.

Digital Lightwave's fibre channel testing offers support for all aspects of node login, fabric login, buffer-to-buffer flow control with configurable frame sizes, headers and rates. Extensive non-intrusive performance monitoring allows in-service fibre channel circuit performance to be assessed. Also supported are usual optical measurements such as measuring and generating line frequency offsets.

Tony Goodchild, director of product management and marketing, said support for the OTU-1f and OTU-2f interface at 11.27Gbit/s and 11.3Gbit/s only necessitated a software upgrade on the MSA 2020 and MSA 2030 modules.
