EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering (Quebec City, Canada) has launched the FTB-8510 Packet Blazer Ethernet test module for the FTP-200 Compact Platform. The combination of the Ethernet test module with the Compact Platform provides field technicians with Ethernet testing capabilities in a lightweight and compact form factor. Features include RFC 2544 testing (including frame loss, throughput, and latency), multiple-stream generation and analysis, Ethernet quality-ofservice testing, and packet jitter (frame-delay variation).

Offered as a test module housed inside the FTB-400 Universal Test System (UTS) and the FTB-200 Compact Platform, the Packet Blazer provides agreement verification to Ethernet-based packet services. The Packet Blazer tests Ethernet connectivity in its native format: 10/100/1000 Base-T, 1000 Base-SX, 1000 Base-LX, and 1000 Base-ZX for LAN-to- LAN services delivered via ATM, frame relay, next-generation SONET/SDH, switched Ethernet, VLANs, dark fiber, or wavelength division multiplexing. The Packet Blazer also features EXFO's EtherBERT™ technology that provides bit-error-rate testing of Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. This test solution is mostly used for WDM testing to assess quality of transmission.
