Application

Optical Transport Networks (OTN) are composed of optical network elements connected by optical fiber links. The OTN network elements transport, multiplex, route, manage, and supervise the optical channels that carrying client signals. In order to accommodate increased data bandwidth requirements increase, a significant portion of Internet traffic is forwarded and encapsulated using ITU-T G.709 OTU3 and OTU4 frame formats. OTN interfaces are connected to dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) optical switches, optical line equipment, and transponders. Ixia is a leader in test and measurement with a large installed base of higher speed Ethernet (HSE), 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) test ports. HSE and OTN interfaces and systems require large-scale, real-world traffic and analysis. Ixia's HSE and XOTN test solutions provide the data path, protocol performance, services delivery, and bandwidth efficiency performance needed. Ixia's XOTN chassis unit addresses the test requirements for several a wide audience of users: Service providers: Validates SLA and resiliency of OTN and Ethernet networks Certifies carrier class routers with OTN and/or Ethernet interfaces Verifies the data path and protocol performance of multiservice provisioning platforms (MSPPs) used in large core IP/MPLS data centers, over a wide array of network deployment schemes

Router manufacturers: Validates data path handling of OTN line cards with IP, MPLS, MPLS-TP, and Ethernet traffic Verifies routing protocol operation with large-scale emulation and full line-rate traffic

Transport equipment manufacturers: Validates Ethernet data mapping over OTN transport networks using OTU3 and OTU4 formats

Ixia OTN Product Summary


The XOTN test solution works in conjunction with Ixia's 40/100 GE load modules. The XOTN chassis unit fully leverages the functionality of Ixia's layer 2-3 test application: IxNetwork. IxNetwork features high-performance data path traffic and large-scale protocol emulation. XOTN operates in conjunction with Ixia's HSE interfaces. CFP MSA transceivers connect 40 and 100 GE test ports to one end of the XOTN unit, establishing a layer 1 link. An additional CFP transceiver is connected to an OTN (OTU3/OTU4)capable device. Either multimode or single mode transceivers may be used.
