Anritsu Transport Test for 1G, 10G and 100G Networks
Anritsu has released a 100G Multi-rate Module for its Network Master Pro MT1000A all-in-one tester, supporting interface rates from 10 Mbps to 100 Gbps, and technologies including Ethernet, Optical Transport Networks (OTN), SDH/SONET, Fibre Channel and CPRI/OBSAI. Integrating the new 100G module with existing OTDR and CPRI RF modules in the MT1000A main unit provides field engineers and technicians with a handheld solution covering all current testing needs for data centres and core, metro, access, mobile backhaul and mobile fronthaul networks.
With the 100G Multi-rate Module installed, the Network Master Pro MT1000A supports more interface standards than any other handheld transport tester on the market, according to the company. The all-in-one tester meets requirements for CFP4/QSFP28, QSFP+, SFP28, SFP+/SFP and RJ45. Its flexible configurations support field upgradability across testing technologies, providing a versatile upgrade path and future-proof investment.
Not only does the 100G Multi-rate Module support 1G, 10G, 25G and 100G Ethernet, it also provides the largest depth of OTN mappings to client signals, including three levels of ODU Multi-Stage mappings. This comprehensive test capability allows engineers and technicians to keep pace with emerging networking requirements.
Other enhancements to the Network Master Pro MT1000A include the G0382A auto-focus Video Inspection Probe (VIP) that automates optical connector inspection with one-button image focusing, centring, capture, analysis and report generation; support for Cat 6/6a cable tests, Fibre Channel buffer credit analysis; and in-band network discovery to identify other Anritsu Network Master products on the network and automate testing between them.
All instruments in the MT1000A series support multiple technologies utilising a common direct-access GUI, PC control and one-button testing software, the aim being to ensure every test is completed correctly first time, every time.
