JDSU Unveils FTTx Test Capabilities

JDSU announced the release of the Very Long Range (VLR) OTDR module for its T-BERD and MTS-8000 platform, combining several new features into an OTDR tester for access and metro network optical applications. The module design, which introduces fiber network characterization capabilities, complements the range of OTDR modules within the T-BERD/MTS-8000 platform.

JDSU said the new product optimizes critical OTDR parameters such as speed, dead zone and dynamic range. The JDSU VLR OTDR module combines all three functions with performance features, including a 0.1s refresh time, 0.8m event dead zone, 4m attenuation dead zone, and the first commercially-available, four-wavelength 45 dB OTDR. Also included is 45 dB dynamic range functionality.
