JDSU T-BERD®/MTS-6000A and 8000 MSAM Adds
MPLS-TP Analysis and Verification

Supports PTN, Advanced Carrier Ethernet Networks, Mobile Backhaul,
LTE, and IPTV Deployments

T-BERD®/MTS-6000A and T-BERD®/MTS-8000 Multi-Services Application ModuleTo address the surge in deployment of Packet Transport Networks (PTN), JDSU today introduced an advanced level of analysis and verification for Multiprotocol Label Switching Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) services for its T-BERD®/MTS-6000A and T-BERD®/MTS-8000 Multi-Services Application Module (MSAM). MPLS-TP, an emerging Layer 2 packet-based transport technology that directs and carries data from one network node to the next, is critical to the successful deployment of Carrier Ethernet services driven by high-bandwidth, high-performance applications such as LTE, Internet Protocol (IP) Video, and Mobile Backhaul.

As service providers offer and install more packet-based MPLS-TP services for their customers, the JDSU software upgrade will provide them a cost-effective method for verifying the installation of MPLS-TP services. The new JDSU test suite gives providers confidence that MPLS-TP services are delivered with true carrier-class QoS; with properly functioning end-to-end operations, administration, and maintenance (OAM); as well as protection switching.

Highlights of the new MPLS-TP feature include:

  • Verifies key service level agreement (SLA) QoS metrics by generating and analyzing full line rate MPLS-TP data traffic up to 10 Gbps.
  • Supports comprehensive MPLS-TP OAM in compliance with both ITU-T pre-standard G.8114 and IETF draft MPLS-TP OAM based on Y.1731.
  • Generates and monitors OAM messages at pseudowire, Label Switched Path (LSP), and section layer.
  • Includes OAM features such as continuity check (CC), loopback (LB), and alarm indication signal (AIS), operating with both Label 13 or Label 14.
  • Performs real-time simultaneous OAM testing with background traffic generation emulating real MPLS-TP network operation.

The JDSU T-BERD MTS-6000A MSAM is the most compact 10 GbE multifunction tester for the installation and maintenance of next-generation Carrier Ethernet and IP services. It offers field applications for servicing metro core telecommunications networks, wireless/cable switch centers, backhaul networks, and telecommunications and network equipment.
