SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sunrise Telecom Incorporated (Pink Sheets: SRTI), a leader in test and measurement solutions for telecom, wireless and cable networks, today introduced a Fibre Channel testing capability for the STT Metro. Service providers can now test up to four Fibre Channel ports simultaneously, speeding up the successful deployment of storage area networks (SANs).

Fibre Channel technology is used to connect storage area network services for transactional business operations such as banks, transportation and e-commerce, due to its exceptional security, performance and stability. In order to prevent costly service outages for these critical applications and to guarantee reliable performance, service providers are required to thoroughly validate link quality before and after installation. Sunrise Telecom's unique system allows the technician to verify the service level agreement (SLA), and to perform advanced testing through the switching fabric. The high port density of STT Metro enables users to run these tests on four ports simultaneously, significantly reducing testing time and capital expenses.

STT Metro is uniquely suited for troubleshooting difficult-to-detect problems such as transactional failures in signal and application levels. With the packet capture and decode feature, the STT Metro can analyze each packet, allowing users to pinpoint problems quickly, saving valuable time during troubleshooting.

Providing the bandwidth guaranteed on SLAs is now made simpler by eliminating the trial and error process of determining the correct number of buffer credits to allocate. With the buffer credit optimization feature, the test set will pre-determine the buffer credit allocation required, removing the guess work and shortening installation time.

"With a growing number of multi-service lines and switches supporting both Fibre Channel and Ethernet technologies, technicians need the flexibility to test both technologies in one test set," said Alex Luo, senior product marketing manager, Sunrise Telecom. "STT Metro reduces capital expenditures and simplifies testing by providing multi-service verification for SAN and LAN deployment in one single portable unit."Sunrise Telecom's SAN test solutions also include a Fibre Channel module for the handheld modular test toolkit (MTT). The STT Metro and the Fibre Channel Module for the MTT platform are available immediately.
