SAN JOSE, USA: Sunrise Telecom Inc. announced that a Tier One European telecom carrier has selected its XTT 5000 handheld test device, which now includes Fibre Channel testing capabilities.
The handheld, lightweight XTT 5000 has dual port capabilities for simultaneously testing two Fibre Channel links, cutting in half the time typically spent on link activation and verification, and boosting workforce productivity for service provider test and measurement technicians. The XTT 5000 also provides testing for the installation and maintenance of 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Gigabit Metro Ethernet and IP services.
With the latest option, the XTT 5000 allows service providers to test the 1G, 2G and 4G Fibre Channel links used to connect storage area network services employed for high-bandwidth tasks, such as transactional activity in the banking and finance industries.
Bahaa Moukadam, Sunrise Telecom’s CEO, said the European carrier chose the XTT 5000 because it simplifies the test and measurement process, saving the carrier time and allowing for more productive use of test and measurement resources in the field.
Moukadam added the carrier also commended the XTT 5000’s overall feature set and intuitive user interface as well as its compact size and its light weight compared with competing test and measurement solutions.
"Our updated XTT 5000 solution facilitates installation of Ethernet and Fibre Channel links rapidly and efficiently, while reducing operational costs, meeting SLAs, and giving service provider customers more reliable networks,” Moukadam said.
The XTT 5000 also provides Web-based remote operation through a LAN, giving field technicians access to remote engineers who can help troubleshoot problems without the need for a site visit. Field personnel can quickly and easily comprehend the XTT 5000’s intuitive user interface, reducing the time and expense of device training.
The Dual Port Fibre Channel option for the XTT 5000 is available today from Sunrise Telecom as a field upgradeable option.
