EXFO’s EtherSAM test suite—based on the ITU-T Y.1564 Ethernet service activation methodology—provides comprehensive field testing for mobile backhaul and commercial services. Aligned with the requirements of today’s Ethernet services, the EtherSAM test methodology drastically speeds up deployment and eliminates repeat testing by offering full visibility into all service-level agreement (SLA) metrics, immediately and accurately. This suite also enables complete validation of all SLA parameters within a single test to ensure optimized quality of service. EtherSAM is comprised of two phases, the service configuration test and the service performance test.
EXFO is a recognized leader in network testers and telecom solutions. With the large, installed base of DSn/PDH and legacy SONET/SDH circuits in access and metro Ethernet networks, testing, troubleshooting and maintenance have become daily tasks.
Covering all DSn/PDH and SONET/SDH interfaces, our ultra-portable MAX-800 Handheld Tester for DSn/PDH and full legacy SONET/SDH is ideally suited to field service deployment, in addition to installation, commissioning and maintenance of access and metro Ethernet networks. This solution offers test functions that range from bit-error-rate (BER) measurements to advanced characterization.
