TraceSpan NG-PON Xpert

XG-PON1 and NG-PON2 Multi-Layer Analyzer and Emulator

The NG-PON Xpert multi-layer analyzer is a unique protocol analyzer and emulator for XG-PON1 and NG-PON2 products. NG-PON Xpert is a modular tool designed for R&D, laboratory and field application engineers engaged in the development, testing and deployment of XG-PON1 and NG-PON2 standard-compliant solutions. Cutting significant time from NG-PON development, deployment, debugging, and interoperability testing, NG-PON Xpert accelerates time to market and return on investment.

The innovative NG-PON Xpert analyzer and emulator verifies the interoperability of products offered by different vendors, and indicates compliance of any combination of OLT and ONT/ONUs to the relevant standards. NG-PON Xpert is a powerful tool for service providers (Telcos and CLECs), equipment manufacturers and technology and chipset developers.

Advantages

• Complete testing of the XG-PON1 protocol
• Future-ready to support NG-PON2
• Performance and Compliance Analysis
• Independent Testing tool – no XG-PON1 or NG-PON2 chipset
• Extensive Data Capturing Solution
• Multi-Layer Probing
• User-Friendly PC-Controlled GUI
• Command Line for Automatic Testing
• Accelerates Time to Market
• Quick Return on Investment
• Decision Making Tool for Managers

NG-PON Xpert provides a complete and accurate analysis of product performance, standard compliance and interoperability without using any XG-PON1 or NG-PON2 chipset. With its unique multi-layer probing capability, NG-PON Xpert provides comprehensive analysis of data in multiple forms – MAC layer GTC Framing sub-layer, TC Adaptation sub-layer and OMCI Management.

In addition, the system allows full view and analysis of the Upper Layers, including Ethernet, PPP, PPPoE, IPv4, IPv6, TCP, UDP, DHCP, IGMP, HTTP, TR-069 and the ability to export the data for further analysis. NG-PON Xpert simultaneously presents downstream and upstream data and the connection between the data transmitted by the OLT and ONT/ONUs. A user-friendly softwarebased analyzer, NG-PON Xpert has a feature-rich GUI that presents multi-layer information in convenient displays, graphs and tables.

NG-PON Xpert can also serve as an OLT Emulator for performing ONU tests on a stand-alone basis. It can generate PLOAM messages to activate the ONU and configure the OMCC GEM port, as well as serve as an OMCI Master to generate and transmit OMCI messages.
The NG-PON Xpert OLT Emulator combined with analyzer provides an integrative ONU test tool, which simultaneously generates commands, analyzes the ONU response, compares its behavior to the expected one and reports any incompliance it detects.

Features

Benefits
Verification Provides standard-compliant and performance-compliant verification
Unbiased XG-PON1 and NG-PON2 Analysis Offers analysis for the current XG-PON1 and future NG-PON2 standards
without relying on any protocol chipset
Simultaneous Data Extraction Simultaneously displays upstream and downstream data and the link between
the OLT and ONT/ONUs
Archive Stores and plays back data, measurements and analysis results
