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
