JANUARY 14, 2008 -- At Winter BICSI Conference 2008, taking place in Orlando, FL, from Jan. 14-17, JDSU (search for JDSU) will display new products from its portfolio of task-ready tools for network and enterprise test -- including the new LanScaperPRO network tester and TestifierPRO cable tester -- as well as new fiber-optic test kits featuring products from Westover Scientific, acquired by JDSU on Jan. 7. JDSU's portfolio will be exhibited at booth #1207.
According to the company, LanScaperPRO combines the functions of a high-end cable tester and length measurement device with the capability to identify, monitor, and correct LAN issues associated with physical layer and link conditions in the network. The TestifierPRO detects wiring problems such as no connection, shorts, high-resistance faults, and split pair conditions by performing detailed analysis for cable test and pre-test. It is also able to determine cable length in feet or meters using a patented cable capacitance method and performs tone generation, among other features.
The all-in-one fiber-optic test kits feature newly acquired Westover Scientific microscopes coupled with JDSU handhelds, including the new range of PocketClass optical power meters and light sources. Unlike competitive offerings, says JDSU, technicians now have cleaning, inspecting, and testing tools in one kit. Fiber testers highlighted at BICSI, in addition to the PocketClass and Westover products, include the SmartClass and the T-BERD 6000 OTDR.
Assaji Aluwihare, general manager of network and enterprise test for JDSU, also will host a one-hour speaking session, "Troubleshooting the Premises," as part of JDSU's participation in BICSI's Winter Conference.
