Calnex Solutions launches industry-first 100GbE tester for Synchronization

Calnex Paragon-100G

Edinburgh, Scotland - Nov 19th 2014 - Calnex Solutions today introduced the first 100GbE SyncE test solution for design, verification and manufacturing of devices and systems from 100GbE to 100BT. Designed to meet the stringent test requirements of network equipment manufacturers (NEMs), the Calnex Paragon-100G supports testing of switches and routers in accordance with ITU-T G.8262 (SyncE) and IEEE 1588 (PTP) standards. The Calnex Paragon-100G also addresses the test requirements of Network Operators who need to qualify 100G synchronization equipment during benchmarking/acceptance testing.

"New 100G backbone build-outs, driven by increasing bandwidth demands, must incorporate the precise synchronisation demands being placed on new core network equipment," said Tommy Cook, CEO of Calnex Solutions. "To design and manufacture products for this marketplace, it is essential that NEMs have up-to-the-minute test tools. The Paragon-100G is the first test solution to make the synchronization measurements required for 100GbE SyncE compliance."

The Calnex Paragon-100G supports wander testing of 100GbE and 40GbE SyncE devices and systems to ITU-T G.8262. It employs a web-based user interface with built-in controller that can be operated directly from a PC or a tablet device.
