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
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.
