JDSU introduced new Datacom and Diphase test features for its T-BERD/MTS-6000A Multi-Services Application Module (MSAM) for faster data communications circuit installment and troubleshooting
These new features are especially important to government, aerospace and defense customers who operate and maintain satellite communications networks which often include Datacom and Diphase interfaces.
The Datacom feature includes test functionality for verifying end-to-end circuit continuity and throughput, stressing and validating clock recovery circuits, and ensuring quality of service (QoS) over data communication circuits. The new conditioned Diphase (dual phase) feature adds support for testing diphase multiplexers and communication links, including synchronous/asynchronous operating modes.
“As telecommunications networks continue to evolve, the need for a single compact and portable tester that can expediently test and troubleshoot a diverse range of circuits and equipment grows,” said Jim Nerschook, vice president and general manager in JDSU’s Communications Test and Measurement business segment. “With these new features, the T-BERD/MTS-6000A MSAM saves time and simplifies testing for government, aerospace and defense customers that require highly accurate tools that can address a wide range of protocols.”
The T-BERD/MTS-6000A MSAM is the industry’s most compact multi-function tester. It supports the installation and maintenance of Carrier Ethernet and Internet Protocol (IP) services while also having the ability to simultaneously test Fiber Channel, Optical Transport Network (OTN), NextGen, Synchronous Optical Network (SONET/SDH) and legacy Time Division Multiplex (TDM) protocols ¬ all in one rugged, handheld unit.
