Calnex Ships Industry’s First 100GbE Jitter Measurement Solution to enable Deployment of High-speed synchronous Ethernet Networks

EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND, May 12, 2017 – Calnex Solutions Ltd today shipped the industry’s first ever 100GbE Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) Jitter measurement solution to a major North American equipment manufacturer. Providing 100GbE Jitter Generation and Jitter Tolerance measurement capability, the Paragon-100G enables the jitter performance of SyncE network equipment to be fully stressed and validated.

The ITU-T standard for SyncE (G.8262) has strict limits for both Jitter Tolerance and Jitter Generation. It’s vital that network equipment can tolerate the levels of Jitter specified by G.8262 and that equipment does not generate jitter above the limits specified by G.8262.

“Demand for bandwidth reached record highs in 2016 and is expected to continue in 2017 and beyond. Service Providers are deploying higher speed core networks, and Ethernet synchronisation is crucial for the end-to-end operation of these systems. Without being able to validate 100GbE SyncE performance, Equipment Manufacturers, cannot ensure their equipment will perform and comply with the SyncE standards” said Tommy Cook, Calnex CEO. “The Paragon-100G is the only test solution able to make the synchronisation and jitter measurements required to verify 100GbE SyncE jitter and wander standards compliance.”

Paragon-100G is the first instrument to enable full testing of both PTP and SyncE technologies at 100GbE according to ITU-T standards including G.8273.2 and G.8262. For more information on the Paragon-100G visit:
