Sunrise Telecom Inc. announced the SunLite GigE, the world's first palm-size GigE tester. This tool helps telecom and broadband service providers meet the stringent demands of using Ethernet to deliver robust and differentiated services to their business and municipal customers. The lightweight SunLite GigE is the only test set technicians require for fast Ethernet network and service installation, verification, maintenance and troubleshooting.

"Until now, the combination of high performance and high functionality were only found in bulky hard to use Ethernet testers," said Bahaa Moukadam, Sunrise Telecom's VP of marketing. The SunLite GigE has transformed the landscape and is capturing the imagination of our customers through its unique combination of high performance, rich functionality and simplicity of use in the world's only palm size tester. Telcos' and Cable Operators' urgent need for a quantum leap in productivity improvement and CapEx reduction has been addressed with this breakthrough product."

The full-featured SunLite GigE provides multistream, multiservice testing capability for installation and maintenance of differentiated Ethernet and triple-play services, and all of the needed functionality for quick and easy service provisioning. A complete set of tests improves productivity and lowers operating expenses by eliminating the need for multiple test sets. Network and service quality can be tested across a variety of simultaneously stressed parameters, ensuring reliable performance.

The SunLite GigE's traffic generation and measurements meet the needs of the most demanding testing scenarios. Using the SunLite GigE, field technicians can verify end-to-end transport of GbE/IP traffic, transmit and analyze eight independent streams and run test methodology based on RFC2544. Technicians can use the SunLite GigE to determine throughput, link utilization, latency and IP connectivity. Highly accurate results enable technicians to quickly make pass/fail, go/no-go decisions.

In addition, the SunLite GigE's 10/100/1000BASE-T and 1000BASE-X interfaces enable copper and fiber GigE testing in the same tester.

The SunLite GigE is a compact and lightweight test set that boots-up rapidly and runs cool without a fan, delivering the long battery life required for complete installation and maintenance of Metro Ethernet, IP services and network elements including switches and routers. The test set's intuitive graphical user interface, high resolution color screen, and simple test profile creation and sharing, allow technicians with limited Ethernet or IP testing experience to verify performance parameters for GbE services quickly.

The SunLite GigE is immediately available from Sunrise Telecom.
