JDSU unveils OTU-8000 remote test unit

JDSU has introduced the OTU-8000, a rack-mounted, remote test unit for its optical network management system (ONMS) that integrates the latest optical time-domain reflectometry (OTDR) and optical switch technologies.

Based on JDSU's MTS/T-BERD 8000, a single OTU-8000 can test hundreds of fiber links within a large area and report any faults relative to the nearest physical landmark.

The JDSU OTU-8000's wide range of applications help carriers decrease operational costs by eliminating erroneous field technician dispatches, reducing mean-time-to-repair (MTTR) and anticipating service disruption by detecting fiber degradation before service is affected. The product also monitors the long-term performance of installed fibers and, for organizations concerned about network security, detects and locates fiber tapping.
