Customized Configuration Matching 400G Measurement Conditions
Allen, TX – March 17, 2020 – Anritsu Corporation President Hirokazu Hamada is pleased to announce the approaching commercial release of its Network Master Pro MT1040A for evaluating 400G networks. Prior to this release, Anritsu will be demonstrating its MT1040A at the OFC Virtual Exhibition.
400G Ethernet has been used mainly in data centers, but the recent rapid growth in data traffic driven by the rollout of 5G commercial services and expected future appearance of self-driving vehicles is seeing deployment of 400G Ethernet at non-data-center locations. Since the MT1040A is a compact battery-driven 400G measuring instrument with directly inserted QSFP-DD or OSFP measurement modules, one unit supports not only 400G tests but also 10M~100G Ethernet, OTN, eCPRI/CPRI, SDH/SONET, and Fibre Channel onsite measurements.
Additionally, it can be combined with an optional OTDR module for fiber line maintenance, as well as with a GPS module for remote measurements using GPS. The integrated auto-test functions help operators perform identical tests to obtain quantitative test results, helping improve onsite work efficiency.
The Network Master Pro MT1040A is a portable measuring instrument for evaluating the transmission quality of various networks operating at communications speeds from 10 Mbps to 400 Gbps. With an evaluation interface supporting SFP/SFP+/SFP28, QSFP+/QSFP28/QSFP-DD, and OSFP optical modules, the MT1040A can be customized easily for any application.
Moreover, combination with the MU100020A/21A/22A/23A ODTR modules for fiber tests, as well as with the High Performance GPS Disciplined MU100090A enables precision latency measurements between remote fiber segments. Additionally, high operation efficiency is assured by a full suite of tools for easy editing of each test scenario, as well as automation tools for one-button operation of complex tests.
