- Provides Physical Layer Measurements
- Access to ATM Cells via Parallel Data Ports
- Traffic Generator: 1 Foreground and 100 Background Channels
The Agilent E1697A 155 Mb/s Optical Line Interface generates and analyses ATM cell streams contained within a SONET or SDH framing format. It is a single-slot VXI module that provides test capability at the physical and ATM cell layers for the E4200/E4210 Broadband Series Test System. The unit is capable of operating in both a cell mode and in a SONET/SDH frame mode. This allows the user to not only examine ATM cells mapped into a SONET/SDH frame but also all of the SONET/SDH frame data. Line interface modules not only connect the device or system under test to your Broadband Series Test System, but also provide physical, convergence, and ATM cell testing capabilities. Transmission test functionality includes traffic generation, cell error, loss and delay measurements, and traffic capture and playback.
The E4200/E4210 Broadband Series Test System (BSTS) is ideal for R&D engineering, product development, field trials and quality assurance. The industry-standard R&D performance and conformance tester that offers the most transmission and protocol technologies on a single platform, the BSTS is ideal for Frame Relay/ATM interworking testing. You can test both sides of an interworking function or device with a single BSTS since timestamps and statistics are synchronized between all modules in a BSTS chassis, allowing correlation of events and times between physical ports.
