TraceSpan’s GPON Xpert(TM) Supports IR-247 Issue 2
RA’ANANA, Israel, March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
Industry’s leading GPON testing tool updated to support the latest updates
to the BBF ONU conformance test plan
TraceSpan Communications [http://www.tracespan.com ], a leader in broadband analysis
and monitoring solutions, announces today that it has updated its GPON Xpert(TM)
multi-layer GPON testing solution to support Issue 2 of the BBF IR-247 ONU conformance
Issue 2 is a significant enhancement to the IR-247 test plan, which includes
definition of ONU profiles for different types of service architectures, support of ONUs
with integrated Residential Gateways, new test cases and modifications to some of the
previously-defined test cases.
GPON Xpert(TM)’s ONU conformance testing solution combines OLT emulation functionality
with deep and comprehensive analysis of the data on the GPON layer as well as on layers
above GPON. As an OLT emulator, GPON Xpert(TM) can generate PLOAM and OMCI messages and
generate and transmit Ethernet traffic on the GPON network. Thanks to its embedded
multi-layer analysis capability and built-in IR-247 test cases, it can automatically
compare the ONU’s behavior with each of the test cases’ pass/fail criteria and use its
Validation Test mechanism to provide clear test results.
“As a world-recognized leader in broadband access testing solutions, TraceSpan
continues to play a major role in GPON ONU testing”, said Dr. Hanan Herzberg, TraceSpan
founder and CEO. “GPON Xpert’s update to support the latest version of the IR-247 test
plan maintains its position as the best and most comprehensive GPON testing tool in the
market today, and as a consequence the most widely-used one “.
With a solid installed base and a growing number of customers every month, GPON
Xpert(TM) continues to be the standard de-facto GPON testing solution in the market. Its
list of customers includes leading tier-1 telecom operators, manufacturers and test labs
involved in the deployment, development and conformance testing of ONU devices.
The GPON Xpert(TM) IR-247 Issue 2 solution is already being used by a significant
number of leading telecom operators and GPON manufacturers, who have purchased TraceSpan’s
OLT emulation module. It is available as an option in both the lab and portable versions
of GPON Xpert(TM) and can also be provided at an attractive price as an add-on module to
existing GPON Xpert(TM) customers.
