Newsletter: GL Announces Ultra OC-3/STM-1 Card

Welcome to the November Issue of GL Communication's Newsletter providing information and insight into the latest product introductions and reviews. In this issue, GL announces the Ultra OC-3 / STM-1 Card for test and measurement applications. The complete specifications for this new card are given at the following link

The Ultra OC-3 / STM-1 Card plugs into a standard PC expansion slot (PCI bus) and is used for analyzing, testing, simulating, and monitoring OC-3, STS-1, T3, T1, and E1 signals. The board can add and drop T1, E1, T3, or STS-1 signals to and from an OC-3 signal, and can also add and drop T1 and E1 signals to and from an STS-1 signal. The Ultra OC-3 / STM-1 card may be used in conjunction with GL's Ultra T1 Card, Ultra E1 Card and Ultra T3 Card in the same PC to provide a complete OC-3, DS3, DS1, E1 and DS0 testing solution. Accompanying Windows-98/NT/2000/XP software affords easy operation.

The OC-3 and STS-1 receivers monitor the SONET signals and present in real-time comprehensive diagnostics of SONET alarms, errors and pointer justifications. SONET alarms and errors may be generated on the transmit stream. BERT patterns may be inserted and detected on constituent T1, E1 and T3 signals. A wide variety of PDH framing formats and BERT patterns are supported. An MCX jack allows the board to accept an external SONET clock signal or to output the board's internally generated clock to other equipment.

The Analyzer is ideally suited for installation, maintenance, commissioning, verification and manufacturing environments of SONET transport networks and network equipment.

An application note has been provided describing the OC-3 / STM-1 Card in detail. Please review this application note and give us a call if you are interested in GL's products/software for this or other applications.
