Tester Performs FEC Evaluations

Touted as the industry's first single instrument capable of conducting OTN, SDH and SONET, PDH, DSn, and jitter tests to 10.7 Gb/s, the MP1590A promises highly accurate forward error correction (FEC) evaluations on ITU-T G.709 OTN transmission equipment at design and manufacturing stages. The performance tester employs a CompactPCI-based architecture that allows users to configure it for testing at 1.5 Mb/s to 10.7 Gb/s rates, accommodating electrical signals and 1,310 and 1,550 nm optical signals. For OTN equipment, the instrument provides performance and jitter testing of OTU-1 (2.66 Gb/s) and OTU-2 (10.71 Gb/s) to ITU-T G.709. The MP1590A is also said to be the only instrument in its class with the ability to perform 10-Gb Ethernet jitter tests according to the ITU-T standard. For DWDM applications, an external modulator is available as an option. The tester has a base price of $57,285. For further details, call Hiroshi Goto at ANRITSU CO., Richardson, TX. (972) 761-4640.
