Leader in Test and Measurement Solutions Introduces First Handheld Fibre Channel Testing

Sunrise Telecom(R) Incorporated, a leader in test and measurement solutions for today's telecom, wireless and cable networks, introduced the SunSet(R) MTT-30Z Fibre Channel Module, the first handheld solution to support 1, 2 and 4 Gigabit fibre channel testing with full port login of switch fabric. This new test set is an essential tool for service providers provisioning or diagnosing high-performance Storage Area Networks (SAN) in fibre channel, ESCON and FICON.

"Continuous deployment of 4, 8 and 10 Gigabit fibre channel devices and increased customer expectations drive the demand for fibre channel testing and analysis equipment. Not only does the MTT-30Z handheld test set fill a need for fibre channel services, but it also clearly demonstrates Sunrise Telecom's commitment to bringing new technologies and leading-edge test systems to market," said Olga Yashkova, industry analyst, Communication Test & Measurement, Frost & Sullivan.

The MTT-30Z offers a full suite of tests making it ideal for validating the transport FTTx backbone used to supply SAN services. This compact, field unit provides traffic generation and measurements to help verify end-to-end transport of fibre channel, ESCON and FICON and to determine throughput and link initialization.

"As deployment of 4 Gigabit fibre channel services ramps up, the MTT-30Z will prove invaluable in ensuring high performance and superior quality," said Bahaa Moukadam Vice President Marketing Telecom Products Group for Sunrise Telecom. "This solution's all-inclusive analysis capabilities give technicians the comprehensive and intuitive measurements required to boost their productivity and minimize the cost and risk associated with rolling out new services."

The unit's F_Port, N_Port and E_Port login with optimal buffer-to-buffer credit management enables technicians to perform Fibre Channel port login of switch fabric and manages buffer-to-buffer credits for tracking the compliance of service level agreements. In addition, BER test, roundtrip delay, bandwidth sweep and RFC2544-like automatic testing ensures quick and accurate measurement and diagnosis of SAN service performance and quality.

The MTT-30Z is part of the MTT modular handheld platform. With over 43,000 units deployed, the MTT solution provides field technicians the industry's broadest range of testing capabilities for installation, troubleshooting and maintenance. The unit's modular design enables users to quickly and easily switch between different testing applications including:
