JDSU will showcase in Australia the new generation of its MTS optical tester line, the MTS-6000.
A compact and lightweight test platform designed for the installation and maintenance of fibre networks, the MTS-6000 weighs only 2.4kg and offers field service technicians a high level of performance and upgradeability on the market.
Modular in design, the MTS-6000 offers an extensive portfolio of test functionality, with over 40 different fibre modules supporting a wide range of applications, and is a single source for future fibre and photonic testing needs.
The MTS-6000 will be on display at the AFC Group booth at CeBIT Australia 2007 in Sydney, from May 1-3 (hall 2, booth G30).
“The JDSU MTS-6000 combines the technology leadership of JDSU’s MTS-8000 multiple network optical test platform in a compact and lightweight tester” said Enzo di Luigi, general manager of JDSU’s fibre optics Test and Measurement group.
“Compatibility with our existing range of fibre test application modules range ensures that our clients maximise their investment returns on our test solutions.”
High performance OTDR on market:
Performance highlights of the MTS-6000 include a Very Long Range (VLR) optical time domain reflectometry (OTDR) module, combining several new features into one first-of-its-kind OTDR tester for FTTx, access, metro and core network optical applications.
Advanced test head design allows this VLR module to provide an industry first in reducing deadzones to below one metre and allowing higher precision and better fault-finding.
Also featured is JDSU’s industry-leading ultra long-haul (UHD) module that achieves high performance of any OTDR field instrument on the market (up to 50dB at 1550nm).
This module’s superior performance enables a test to be completed six times faster than with an existing 40dB OTDR, offering impressive time savings for network installation and fault isolation.
Highly integrated design ensures maximum versatility:
New high-speed delivery systems for triple play, 3G, Agile Optical Networking (AON), and FTTx are changing the way fibre infrastructure systems are installed and maintained.
The MTS-6000 from Acterna Asia Pacific meets the cost objectives of every single test function required while also leaving a migration path to new test requirements.
The MTS-6000 is a highly integrated modular platform with a large high-visibility colour screen (with an optional touchscreen display), a high-capacity lithium ion battery, an optional video fibre scope, and built-in optical test functions such as a visual fault locator, power metre, optical talkset and loss test set (LTS).
Using an innovative automatic bi-directional analysis function, the MTS-6000 can save up to 50 percent test time for OTDR, insertion loss (IL), and optical return loss (ORL) measurements.
The versatility of the MTS-6000 allows it to address additional test applications such as polarisation mode dispersion (PMD), chromatic dispersion (CD), wavelength division multiplexing (C/DWDM), and spectral attenuation measurements.
The MTS-6000 also sets the standard as the small dispersion tester (PMD or CD) available on the market today.
About the MTS product line:
The MTS product line has built a solid worldwide reputation based on cutting-edge design and performance.
Compatibility with thousands of field-proven units deployed worldwide by every major telecommunications network operator enables easy migration to new network technologies while continuing to reduce expenses.
The MTS-6000 continues this standard by offering a superior price/performance ratio and enhancing the value and investment of the MTS-5000 and MTS-8000 platforms.
Compatibility with the industry-leading MTS-8000 and a common user interface, file format, and results presentation makes deployment of the MTS-6000 simple and efficient for a field services team already using other MTS platforms.
