10GbE smart SFP+ transceiver launched for network performance monitoring
Viavi Solutions has introduced the Fusion JMEP 10, a smart, small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) Gigabit Ethernet transceiver for network test, turn-up and performance monitoring up to 10GbE.
Part of the company’s lifecycle management platform, the transceiver addresses the emergence of 10GbE as the dominant Ethernet bandwidth being used for applications like 5G xHaul, Business Ethernet Services, Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) for Cable or GPON/XGSPON for Fiber Access Networks.
It is a small, hot-pluggable, optical transceiver offering an economical Ethernet testing solution that is easy to deploy in existing SFP+ ports, simplifying test, service activation and troubleshooting to reduce equipment upgrades, truck rolls and mean time to repair (MTTR).
The inline performance monitoring capability turns network ports into service assurance tools, enabling Ethernet operation, administration and maintenance for any 10GbE network. A Micro-Burst detection feature monitors traffic with millisecond accuracy to detect spikes that can cause packet loss, which can have a dramatic impact on application performance.
