JDSU announced today that it has released a fiber-optic test platform for coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) networks. The CWDM series of OTDR modules is designed for JDSU’s T-BERD/MTS-8000 and T-BERD/MTS-6000 platforms.
The CWDM OTDR product was developed to help cable operators, dark fiber providers and telecommunications service providers maintain and troubleshoot CWDM fiber networks more comprehensively. Using JDSU's CWDM OTDRs, users can test new wavelength routes not yet in use without disrupting communications traffic on active wavelengths. This "in-service" capability increases technician productivity and helps reduce installation and maintenance costs.
"Our new CWDM OTDR modules are part of JDSU's continued commitment to develop innovative solutions that address our customers' always-evolving requirements," said Enzo di Luigi, general manager of JDSU's fiber optics test and measurement group. "JDSU is uniquely positioned to leverage our internal optical expertise across multiple markets, including active and passive components and network solutions, to bring smarter field solutions to market faster."
