Exfo has added full ODU0 and ODUflex capabilities to its next-generation 10G and 40G Transport Blazer test module series. ODU0 provides new mapping for the transport of 1 Gbit/s ethernet signals with multiplexing capability up to 100 GB; it allows for OTN networks to be backward-compatible with the industry-installed base, and is optimized for Gigabit ethernet clients and transport of client signals with a rate below 1.238 Gbit/s. ODUflex, meantime, includes higher efficiency for network configuration and bandwidth allocation, says Exfo, providing a future-proof solution for the transport of any client signal at any rate. It enables technology shared by network equipment manufacturers, service provider labs and field-testing crews, and is critical for deploying next-generation packet optical transport networks. The ODU0 and ODUflex capabilities are available as a software option for all Transport Blazer OTN test modules.
