Acterna, Formerly Wavetek Wandel Goltermann (WWG) and TTC,Introduces Jitter Test Solution for 10 Gbit/s Bit Rates Thursday 14 December 2000 PDF Print ANT-10Gig now measures SONET/SDH transmission parameters for concatenated OC-192/STM-64 signals Acterna, the new company formed by the May 23, 2000 merger of Wavetek Wandel Goltermann (WWG) and TTC, today introduced a jitter module for its ANT-10Gig Advanced Network Tester. It is now possible to measure jitter and wander at the OC-192/STM-64 hierarchy level with a single, compact instrument. Measurements comply with ITU-T Recommen-dation O.172, and MTIE/TDEV evaluation is possible. At the same time, the ANT-10Gig was extended to handle concatenated signals (OC-192c/STM-64c). Network operators use concatenation to deliver undivided transport capacity for IP and ATM data streams at speeds slightly less than 10 Gbit/s. The ANT-10Gig has the optical and electrical interfaces needed to develop and test network elements. "Through mode" enables precise manipulation of OC-192/STM-64 signals by modifying overhead bytes, inserting errors or generating jitter.
