ANRITSU’S MP1590B network performance tester is a measuring instrument capable of measuring IP networks up to 10GbE using the Ethernet plug-in modules of Anritsu's MD1230A test system.
The tester’s traditional functions also include testing of PDH, DSn, SDH/SONET and OTN equipment and jitter measurement, with only one box.
A new EoS unit supports EoS measurement, virtual concatenation, and LCAS measurement to enable testing of next-generation SDH/SONET equipment.
The traditional MP1570/90A plug-in units can also be used without changes.
The MP1590B can perform some simultaneous applications -- such as SDH/SONET, OTN, EoS, jitter and Ethernet measurement -- using combinations of plug-in units.
The MP1590B-30 high precision jitter analysis option introduces new accuracy for jitter measurements and a traceable calibration standard that have never before been available in the industry.
Delivering an industry-best ±20μIp-p accuracy in jitter measurement, it is the only test instrument to support the phase analysis method recommended in the revised ITU-T Draft O.172. This option also includes measurement repeatability of ±5μIp-p and guaranteed low intrinsic jitter of 50μIp-p.
Its Golden TX feature guarantees the jitter generation of the MP1590B's transmitter, providing a known jitter value that can be used as a reference transmission for calibrating other jitter testers.
The MP1590B is equipped with Poisson error insertion and variable optical output power functions, so it can efficiently evaluate Forward Error Correction (FEC) used with OTN equipment.
For SONET/SDH equipment, the MP1590B can perform Tandem Connection and Automatic Protection Switch (APS) tests.
For DSn or PDH equipment, it can perform function tests using multiplexer/demultiplexer (MUX/DEMUX) measurement, error insertion, or alarm addition.
