EXFO adds IPTV QoS test functions to Packet Blazer Ethernet line

EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering has released IPTV quality-of-service (QoS) test capabilities for its Packet Blazer Ethernet product line.

The new IPTV software option, now available on the newly released FTB-8510B Ethernet Packet Blazer, offers test capabilities that include media delivery index (MDI), program clock reference jitter, stream rate metrics, bandwidth utilization and IP metrics on up to 255 simultaneous MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 media streams.

The company's IPTV offering also integrates complete carrier-grade Ethernet capabilities to provide customers with an analysis tool for full transport-layer and service-layer testing.

The IPTV software, coupled with the FTB-8510B Packet Blazer, is housed inside EXFO's portable modular platform, the FTB-400 universal test system, for field applications.
