Viavi Solutions Recognized by 2017 Lightwave Innovation Reviews for Three Unique Test and Measurement Solutions

Viavi Receives Elite Scores for Innovative Field Testing of High-Speed Network Technologies

MILPITAS, Calif., March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Viavi Solutions (NASDAQ: VIAV) today announced that it was recognized by the 2017 Lightwave Innovation Reviews for three network testing solutions: the T-BERD/MTS 5800-100G Handheld Network Tester, OSA-710 Optical Spectrum Analyzer technology, and the OneExpert DSL Modular Field Test Platform with G.fast.

"The ever-increasing demand for faster broadband is driving high-speed technologies to the edge of the network, including G.fast, DOCSIS 3.1, and 100G metro networking," said Kevin Oliver, Vice President and General Manager, Converged Instruments and Virtual Test, Viavi Solutions. "Viavi is gratified to be recognized by the Lightwave Innovation Reviews, as well as our recent BTR Diamond Awards, for our market-leading innovation. We are uniquely qualified to enable test, measurement and validation from the core to the customer, regardless of the technology, at speeds up to 400G."

Presented annually by Lightwave, the Lightwave Innovation Reviews program distinguishes top products and solutions available within the optical networking industry as determined by a panel of third-party judges.

"On behalf of the Lightwave Innovation Reviews, I would like to congratulate Viavi on their elite scores, accounting for three of the six products recognized in the Field Test Equipment category," said Lightwave Group Publisher Rob Stuehrk. "This competitive, unbiased program celebrates the most original and innovative products in the optical networking industry."

T-BERD/MTS 5800-100G Handheld Network Tester

Awarded a score of 4.5 out of 5, the T-BERD/MTS 5800-100G Handheld Network Tester is described as: "Excellent and useful test equipment for network turn-up, capacity verification and trouble shooting. Handheld option provides extra flexibility in field use."

OSA-710 Optical Spectrum Analyzer

Judges awarded the OSA-710 Optical Spectrum Analyzer technology a score of 4.0 out of 5, noting: "Viavi's spectral correlation measurement method is truly innovative. It solves a very challenging problem: non-disruptive in-band measurement of OSNR in a modern ROADM-based coherent transmission system. This is a meaningful advancement to the optical measurement field and will be highly valuable to the network operators."

OneExpert DSL Modular Field Test Platform with G.fast

Awarding a score of 3.5 out of 5 to the OneExpert DSL Modular Field Test Platform with G.fast, judges commented: "This copper and DSL portable test set provides all of the capability and automation expected today, and is one of very few that extends to G.fast. What sets it apart is extendibility via optional external probes that allow it to perform coax testing, wire mapping, and optical power level tests, act as an optical fiber scope, and perform extensive Wi-Fi testing (basic Wi-Fi sweep capability is built-in)."

Viavi's solutions for high-speed lab and field testing, essential fiber field testing, and fiber optic lab and manufacturing will be on display in Booth 2303 at the 2017 OFC Conference & Exhibition, March 21-23 in Los Angeles, California.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
