Testing Metro and Access networks calls for using cost-effective, versatile, high performance test equipment. JDSU has designed an optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) with the required performance and functions for the characterization of various optical networks, such as CWDM, wireless backhaul, and FTTx. The Metro-Access (MA) OTDR Module meets the challenges of commissioning a complete metro ring, troubleshooting a bend in a distribution frame, and qualifying high-port-count optical splitters.
The MA OTDR Module, part of the T-BERD/MTS-4000
family of products offers a lightweight, rugged, battery-operated handheld test solution. Its large display combined with comprehensive user interface makes it the ideal OTDR in response to any test scenario.
