T-BERD®/MTS-5800 now helps qualify network services and the fiber plant with one easy-to-use test instrument
February 20, 2014 — JDSU today announces the next generation of the market-leading T-BERD/MTS-5800 dual-port 10 G network test instrument that enables mobility, business services, and metro technicians to test virtually any interface in their network. Its new fiber optics test capability lets the same technicians fully qualify FTTx, FTTA, DAS, cloud RAN, and access/backhaul fiber plant with one ultra-portable instrument.
Increase technician efficiency using one test tool for metro area, business services, and mobility interface testing, such as 10 Mbps to 10 G Ethernet, SONET/SDH, T1/E1, T3/E3, 1 G to 10 G Fibre Channel, OTN, CPRI, and OBSAI.
Standardize testing procedures with automated workflows for RFC 2544, Y.1564, and RFC 6349 TrueSpeed™ tests for easier more consistent testing throughout the organization.
Make all technicians instant fiber experts with the optical test capability that lets them inspect fiber-optic connector end faces, measure power/loss, and characterize and troubleshoot fiber-optics links.
Reduce dropped mobile handoffs with the ability to validate mobile network synchronization by testing synchronous Ethernet, IEEE 1588v2, and 1 PPS protocols, among others.
Easier to use with its modern tablet-like touch screen user interface to more easily launch tests and view key data.
Mobile and fixed line operators worldwide are consolidating workgroups and cross-training technicians to increase operational efficiencies. Today’s network technician conducts various tests and qualifications each week and needs one test tool that can activate and troubleshoot Ethernet circuits, qualify and monitor fiber connections, as well as test legacy interfaces and network timing. The T-BERD/MTS-5800 is the one tool network technicians need to finish jobs faster and more efficiently.
