JDSU SyncE helps telecom providers deal with Ethernet synchronization issues

Telecom Lead Team:
Transition to Ethernet is challenging to
service providers and network equipment manufacturers as several
synchronization issues occur during the migration. For example, base stations
that aren’t synchronized in frequency can disrupt mobile services and cause
subscriber churn.


Addressing this concern, test and measurement company
JDSU announced the launch of a “SyncE” solution that helps service
providers and network equipment manufacturers prevent dropped calls and poor
video quality over 4G/LTE and mobile backhaul networks due to Ethernet
synchronization issues.


SyncE, available on JDSU‘s Optical Network Test (ONT)
platform, is an industry first solution to provide jitter and wander measurements
according to ITU-T standards. The all-in-one solution offers accurate
jitter and wander testing in a single unit for 1G and 10G Ethernet network
deployments. It also delivers verification testing in the lab and can be used
to diagnose and troubleshoot timing issues in the field following deployment.


“We’ve taken jitter and wander measurement
techniques that have been proven for years and applied them to synchronized
Ethernet for 1G and 10G for the first time,” said Dr. Lars Friedrich, vice
president and general manager, JDSU Communications Test and Measurement
business segment.


“In order to roll out LTE and mobile backhaul,
synchronous Ethernet is a critical element that every communications service
provider and network equipment manufacturer needs to take into account,”
Friedrich added. The ONT SyncE test solution enables them to avoid
service-impacting issues in the field before deploying these services.”


JDSU PacketPortal Gives Real-Time Access to Network Data

Recently JDSU also announced the launch of PacketPortal,
which helps communications service providers (CSPs) get real-time access to
critical network data.


PacketPortal is a Smart Network Application Platform
(SNAP); it uses microprobe technology that can gather network intelligence
ubiquitously, helping CSPs deliver high-quality subscriber experience.
