As Ethernet continues to evolve as the transport technology of choice, networks are shifting their focus from purely moving data to providing entertainment and new applications in the interconnected world. This webinar focuses on the existing test methods and introduces the new Ethernet service activation methodology, EtherSAM, as a service test tool based on the draft ITU-T Y.156sam methodology.

Specific topics include:

  • Key challenges encountered when testing backhaul and carrier Ethernet services
  • Test methodologies related to turning up and troubleshooting backhaul and carrier Ethernet services
