Selecting and installing up to two modules from three options enables the MT1100A to conduct comprehensive R&D, manufacturing, installation, and maintenance tests of network and transport equipment operating at bit rates from 1.5 Mbps to 100 Gbps. With four 100-Gbps ports, the MT1100A supports R&D of the latest OTN 400-Gbps technologies using client signals, including Ethernet, CPRI, Fibre Channel, SDH/SONET, and PDH/Dsn. It can perform mapped OTN client-signal tests under near-to-live conditions for faster troubleshooting.

It is the first portable transport tester that supports simultaneous installation of four independent 100 Gbps ports. Selecting one of the available CFP, CFP2, CFP4, CXP, and QSFP+ connectors for each port supports insertion of the appropriate module for all-in-one development and manufacturing of WDM, switches, and optical transceivers. Moreover, CAUI/XLAUI electrical signals can be input/output to/from the MT1100A, supporting development of high-speed optical modules using dedicated extenders.

Judge's comment: "Excellent and useful test equipment for network turn-up, capacity verification and trouble shooting. It is very versatile."
