Digital Lightwave Inc. has unveiled the CSA 4100 module for its NIC Platform that supports multilane Ethernet 41G and 103G, OTN 43G (OTL-3.4) and 112G (OTL-4.10), and SONET/SDH 40G (STL-256.4) testing. The module has CFP-based multilane 40G and 100G capabilities. The integrated single-chassis solution also supports testing from 1.5Mbit/s and 2Mbit/s to 100Gbit/s, 103Gbit/s and 112Gbit/s.

"At Digital Lightwave, we never stand still but we never venture too far from our roots either," stated Doyle Mills, director of product marketing at Digital Lightwave. "While we have all-new modules with more testing capabilities than ever before, we have maintained the same logical industry-leading, easy-to-use GUI. We continue to protect our customers' historical investment in their DLI product portfolio. An example of that versatility is that existing five-slot NICs can be upgraded with any of the new modules, including the new CSA 4100 for testing all the way up to 112Gbit/s."

A NIC with CSA 4100 module plus additional modules for lower-rate testing is available to provide a complete Ethernet, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fiber Channel and PDH/T-Carrier test solution. The multiple modules work as a complete system to allow mapping from the lowest to highest rates. For example, ODU-0 with Ethernet or PRBS as a payload can be mapped into OTU-1, OTU-2, OTU-3 or OTU-4 rate.
