Anritsu unveils CMA5000 universal transport analysis module

Supplier News

Anritsu’s new CMA5000 universal transport analysis (UTA) module is designed to support today's transport standards and provide the only tool you need for Ethernet, SDH/SONET and much more.

The UTA module represents a new generation of tester with the ability to support Ethernet, SDH/SONET, OTN, fibre channel and other existing transport standards.

Small enough to fit snugly into the CMA5000 platform, the UTA provides field engineers with lots of configurability in a portable solution by also supporting hot pluggable XFP and SFP transceivers. No matter what equipment requires testing, field engineers are assured of having a test module equipped with the correct optical/electrical interface for every situation.

The UTA module is currently available for 10-GigE and OC-192/STM-64 applications, with other applications available soon.

The 10-GigE UTA application provides technicians and engineers with a set of test functions needed for installing, commissioning and troubleshooting today’s 10-GigE networks.

A single UTA module provides everything necessary to test 10-GigE LAN-PHY and WAN-PHY networks, including traffic monitoring and generation, RFC2544-based performance analysis, continuity check (PING) and loop back tests in switched networks.

For the STM-64/OC-192 application, the UTA not only provides the standard test set, but makes available a smart monitoring function for checking virtual concatenation, LCAS protocol and differential delay in NGN networks.

Highlights of the CMA5000-UTA module are:

  • Support of 10-GigE LAN-PHY and WAN-PHY
  • Generation and analysis of Ethernet traffic at 100% line load
  • Automated 2544 tests
  • BER tests
  • SEQUENCE tests
  • Support of OC-192/STM-64
  • Generates and analyses SONET/SDH frames down to the tributary level (DS1/E1)
  • APS measurement with 125 ms of resolution
  • Automatic detection of network problems with trouble scan features
  • Hot pluggable XFP and SFP
  • Automatic test reports in PDF file format
  • Upgradeable by software
