JDSU has introduced two optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) modules for use with its T-BERD/MTS-4000.
The T-BERD 4000 is a small, compact and handheld test platform designed for all phases of the network lifecycle, from the installation to the maintenance of Access/FTTx networks and triple-play services.
The multimode (MM)/single-mode (SM) quad and multimode modules are single-slot OTDRs with powerful certification tools for the installation, turn-up, and maintenance of premises/enterprise networks as well as wireless backhaul infrastructure.
The Quad/MM OTDRs provide dual multimode (850/1300 nm) or quad (850/1300 and 1310/1550 nm) wavelengths with a dynamic range of 27/25 dB (MM), 37/35 dB (SM). Dead zones are <1 m (event)/4 m (attenuation) and it provides source (continuous or modulated) and power meter through the OTDR ports (SM and MM), combining OTDR and loss test set functionalities to help reduce the number of tools in the field.
When combined with the JDSU Enterprise Services Application Module (ESAM), copper, and triple-play functions for a better return on investment (ROI) it
provides comprehensive testing tool for Enterprise networks.
The interface helps technicians with port quality check, automatic settings, loss limits per events and fiber links, automatic event analysis, and results management.
The modules also provide technicians with an all-in-one instrument that features advanced test functionality specifically developed in response to emerging industry demands.
