JDSU introduces fiber-optic test solution for CWDM networks
JDSU has released the coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) series of OTDR modules for its T-BERD/MTS-8000 and T-BERD/MTS-6000 platforms.
The solution combines several new features into one OTDR test solution for short- and medium-haul CWDM network applications. The CWDM solution complements the existing range of OTDR modules within the T-BERD/MTS family and enables users to deploy network services in one convenient package.
The CWDM OTDR solution was developed to help cable operators, dark fiber providers and telecommunications service providers characterize, maintain and troubleshoot CWDM fiber networks.
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.
