GL launches SonetExpert™ tester for high speed
OC-3/STM-1 and OC-12/STM-4 networks

Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - May 06, 2020- GL Communications Inc., a global leader in telecom test and measurement solutions, addressed the press regarding the new SonetExpert™ test platform for High Speed OC-3/OC-12 and STM-1/STM-4 Analysis and Emulation.

GL's SonetExpert™ is a USB based hardware platform capable of OC-3/OC-12 and STM-1/STM-4 wire-speed processing on optical ports meant for SONET/SDH channelized data carrying many independent unframed/framed T1 and E1 streams.

“GL’s SonetExpert™ Channelized Analyzer comprises of hardware and software for capturing, monitoring, emulating and analysing protocols over SONET-SDH links. SonetExpert™ analyzer - with optical ports supports channelized SONET and SDH mapping of T1/E1 payload. In this mode, SonetExpert™ supports direct access to all 336 T1 or 252 E1 channels on an OC-12/STM-4 line for analysis and simulation – all within a single PC. Its main advantage is that any of the T1/E1 or DS0 test requirements can be met without resorting to electrical access and cumbersome, expensive and time-consuming cabling and setup”, said Vijay Kulkarni CEO of GL Communications.

“GL's SonetExpert™ hardware platform (USB unit) is capable of OC-3/OC-12 and STM-1/STM-4 wire-speed processing on two optical ports meant for SONET/SDH channelized data carrying many independent T1 or E1 streams.

He further added, “the SonetExpert™ is connected to a PC USB 3.0 port via a USB 3.0 cable. The hardware is based on the firmware FPGA making it easy to upgrade in the field for application versatility. A unique feature of the unit is the capability to capture, transmit and process at wire speed to and from applications and hard disk on all interfaces”.
