Now, more than ever, network operation managers need to be able to rapidly deploy a plethora of new high-quality services. In turn, field engineers are faced with the need to complete a wide array of tests to verify critical transport parameters which assure compliance and quality. Further, field teams are now facing tremendous complexity with the various troubleshooting applications out there. In the field, I see a lot of variation in the testing regimes used and every day I am surprised to come across outdated and highly inefficient practices to address today’s Ethernet services.

In particular, two of the most important applications of NFV—the virtualizing of EPC (evolved packet core) and IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem)—demand especially high and predictable performance and stable, seamless interconnection between virtual and physical networks.

40G or 100G coherent systems on long-haul dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) networks provide great benefits that even go beyond “simply” boosting your bandwidth. However, they also bring about new test and measurement challenges, particularly for optical spectrum analyzers (OSAs)—test instruments that are vital to optimal DWDM system commissioning and troubleshooting.

Are you in charge of a mobile backhaul network? Are you faced with dispersion challenges that are increasing your bit error rates (BERs)? Do you know what dispersion tests work best for mobile backhaul deployments?Although dispersion testing was traditionally performed in metro and core networks, it is now, more than ever before, moving closer to the network edge in mobile backhaul deployments or client-side rollouts. But why?
