JDSU intros return loss measurement capabilities for FTTx components

March 22, 2007
MARCH 22, 2007 -- JDSU has introduced the Optical Component Environmental Test System (OCETS) Plus for optical component qualification testing, including what it calls the industry's first large-scale automated test system capable of repeatable return loss measurements up to 70 dB.

MARCH 22, 2007 -- JDSU (search for JDSU) has introduced the Optical Component Environmental Test System (OCETS) Plus for optical component qualification testing, including what it calls the industry's first large-scale automated test system capable of repeatable return loss measurements up to 70 dB.

OCETS Plus will be on display next week at OFC 2007 (Hall C, booth 2425).

With over 420 test ports now supported (more than double earlier versions), OCETS Plus runs on JDSU EasyOCETS software that enables streamlined test set-up, monitoring, graphing, and database interfacing of up to twelve 32-port PON splitters. With EasyOCETS software, test configuration times are reduced from hours to minutes, allowing lab staff to focus on test results rather than configuring and maintaining the test system, JDSU says. An option to integrate the JDSU T-BERD 8000's VLR OTDR module is designed to further reduce device load times and removes the need for splicing.

"An effective FTTx network infrastructure requires test support from component-level qualification testing through network service assurance," said Enzo DiLuigi, general manager of JDSU's Fiber Optics Communications Test and Measurement group. "With the enhancements available via OCETS Plus, JDSU is the only test and measurement provider that validates the reliability of FTTx networks from beginning to end."

EasyOCETS software is also available separately to upgrade existing OCETS systems.
