Modular handheld instrument offers the first full-capability, single-box solution for modern network field technicians
Scottsdale, Ariz., March 7, 2022 – VIAVI Solutions Inc. (VIAVI) (NASDAQ: VIAV) today introduced a 400G module for the OneAdvisor 800, providing advanced 400G transport test and maintenance functionality for business service and network core technicians working in the field. Combining its transmission protocol and fiber network modularity, the OneAdvisor 800 offers unprecedented testing performance for technicians who must carry their gear into the field. The OneAdvisor 800 is on display this week at OFC in San Diego, March 8-10, VIAVI Booth #3727.
Building on its roots in wireless testing, the OneAdvisor 800 consolidates key transport test capabilities with easy-to-use test process and reporting automation. OneAdvisor 800 equips service providers, equipment manufacturers, and system integrators to meet the work-speed and test coverage requirements for network buildouts and maintenance. Accurate, fast, with long battery life and excellent heat dissipation, OneAdvisor 800 is engineered with field technicians in mind.
“Service providers worldwide are seeking ways to equip their field teams with test solutions that enable a reliable test and troubleshooting process, while also seeing a quicker return on investment. The OneAdvisor 800 provides this in a way no other tester does with functionality that serves broad network demands, including 400G,” said Kevin Oliver, Vice President and General Manager, Converged Instruments and Virtual Test, VIAVI. “With the ability to carry all they need into the field, technicians reach a new level of skill and efficiency, even with minimal or no training.”
