JDSU Introduces New All-in-One Test Tool for Cost-Effective Deployment of Broadband Networks and Services

(PresseBox) (Milpitas, Calif., ) JDSU today introduced a fieldinterchangeable, singleslot optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) module for the T-BERD/MTS-4000 platform. The module supports costeffective deployment and support of metro and FTTx networks by combining OTDR, power meter and laser source capabilities in a single instrument.

With all the benefits of the T-BERD/MTS-4000 -- including a large transreflective touch screen display, visual fault locator (VFL) and inspection scope -- the metroaccess (MA) midrange OTDR adds these important performance benefits:

- a stabilized light source and power meter option for insertion loss measurement, to help reduce the number of tools in the field;
- PONoptimized dynamic range for testing through splitters;
- the ability to perform inservice testing - all OTDR lasers are coupled into one port so a separate port is not required for live fiber testing (a filtered version tests live fibers at 1625 nm or 1650 nm);
- traffic detection that will alert the user if they have connected to a live fiber and inhibit the transmission of any test pulse down the fiber; and
- an automated bend detection mode that enables immediate identification and location of macro and micro bends.

"JDSU continues to bring to market innovative fiber field test solutions that meet the performance requirements of FTTx, CWDM and triple play services being deployed worldwide," said Enzo di Luigi, general manager in JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement business segment. "As a result, our T-BERD/MTS family of products has become the industryleading solution for field service teams worldwide and our OTDRs are already successfully deployed at many of the world's largest telecom operators."

The MA midrange OTDR addresses the need for a more versatile solution that keeps pace with the growth of metro access networks. JDSU provides a highly modular and scalable platform able to handle many other applications such as CWDM OSA, xDSL/Copper and triple play.
