Most Comprehensive Carrier Ethernet Service Activation Test Suite

ITU-T Y.1564, formerly known Y.156sam, is the Ethernet Service Activation Test Methodology, ensuring that service providers can do a proper job of verifying the correct configuration and performance of these services at the time of service activation. Sunrise Telecom's numerous contributions to Y.1564 helped drive the ITU-T Y.156sam from its 1st generation set of capabilities which included CIR/EIR/Traffic Policing functionality, to the 2nd generation which expanded the bandwidth profile coverage to CIR/CBS/EIR/EBS/CM/Traffic Policing capability.

As of the time of consent, Sunrise Telecom's IntelliSAM is believed to be the only product in the world with working bandwidth profile test coverage of this full range of CIR/CBS/EIR/EBS/CM/Traffic Policing, and for that reason we have earned our position as the leader in second generation capabilities.

IntelliSAM's benefits include:

  • Fast testing method, more adapted to the Service Activation Testing environment
  • Tests five out of six bandwidth profile parameters, as described in MEF 10.2. The tested parameters are CIR, EIR, CBS, EBS, CM
  • First available product to test the bursty nature of Ethernet traffic
  • Availability per ITU-T Y.1563 is calculated and presented to technician
  • Tests multiple streams at the same time in Service Performance test
  • Measures Frame Delay on every frame
  • Tests Frame Delay Variation
  • Tests network rather than a single device
  • Tests to Service Level Agreements rather than to network failure

  • SunLite GigE Ethernet Tester en GigE Responder

    Your network is very likely based on IP and Ethernet. And you become more and more dependent of this network due to all the additional (cloud) services that run on it. But do you know if your network is properly constructed, installed and designed for reliable Ethernet services? And do you get the bandwith that you pay for from your service provider?

  • CM3800e

    More and more digital services become available on your cable network. The diversity and interdependence of these different services is growing. This leads to a growing bandwith demand. As a cable operator who is rolling out these new services you are required to characterize every aspect of your network from headend to the home to handle these services and bandwith.
