DMC to boost efficiency of optical fiber network testing introduced by JDSU

Feb. 4, 2010
FEBRUARY 4, 2010 JDS Uniphase Corp. (JDSU) in Milpitas, Calif., is introducing the Dual Module Carrier (DMC) for the T-BERD/MTS-8000 portable fiber optic network test equipment, which enables technicians to determine and troubleshoot network traffic problems from two directions using one test solution, rather than both ends of a local circuit.

FEBRUARY 4, 2010 JDSU in Milpitas, Calif., is introducing the Dual Module Carrier (DMC) for the T-BERD/MTS-8000 portable fiber optic network test equipment, which enables technicians to determine and troubleshoot network traffic problems from two directions using one test solution, rather than both ends of a local circuit.

In the typical CO and tier 2/3 troubleshooting environment, two testers have traditionally been necessary to determine that the network segment is properly passing traffic. Now, using one T-BERD/MTS-8000 DMC, technicians can find network traffic problems from both directions with one set of test equipment.

The T-BERD/MTS-8000 offers concurrent capture/decode and TCP WireSpeed testing on two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports. A 10M to 10 Gigabit Ethernet, DS1/E1 to OC-192/STM-64, OTN, PDH, Next Generation SONET/SDH and Fibre Channel test solution, the T-BERD/MTS-8000 DMC is capable of simultaneous troubleshooting both sides of a circuit -- using one tester.

The DMC also offers the ability to run four concurrent tests, so technicians can share a test set for installation and troubleshooting in a central office, and offers service provider labs sufficient port density for long-term equipment "soak" testing across several interfaces with the portability needed to take soak testing to the field.
