JDSU has unveiled three field-interchangeable, single-slot plug-in OTDRs for the T-BERD/MTS-6000 and T-BERD/MTS-8000 platforms.
Each of the new OTDR modules – for very short-range (VSRe), medium-range (MR) and long-range (LR) environments – provides a different combination of price and performance for the respective types of networks that are being tested. The VSRe module is geared toward FTTx/access networks, the MR to metro/regional networks and the LR to core networks.
All three OTDRs were developed to help telecommunications and cable operator field teams, system vendor field installation and service teams, and contractors install and troubleshoot fiber networks.
Each OTDR has one-button automated bi-directional OTDR testing that helps save time and reduce errors in the field, according to JDSU. Together, the OTDRs provide a combination of dynamic range and dead-zones, empowering best-in-class optical performance.
