Testing 10 GigE, IP Video, TCP/UDP, support for SDH networks up to 10GigE/10G.

The MTS-6000A Multi-Services Application Module, housed in a rugged, portable package, is the smallest multi-functional 10 Gb/s Ethernet multi-service application on the market for building and maintaining carrier-class Ethernet and IP networks.

To expand the capabilities inherent in the chassis of the device, it can be additionally equipped with pluggable physical interface modules (PIM) and functional modules (small form-factor pluggable modules) for 10 Gb / s networks (XFP) or for lower speeds ( SFP).

Thus, based on the basic model, a technician can create many different opto-electrical configurations right on the site. With this compact, modular device, technicians can quickly complete the scope of work needed to commission and maintain high-speed urban fiber optic backbones.

The MTS-6000A allows you to test Ethernet and SDH networks at speeds from 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps, as well as debug high-level IP video protocols, HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and layer 4 protocols UDP (User Datagram Protocol) / PCP (Priority Ceiling Protocol).

An efficient user interface allows technicians to quickly set up tests and evaluate results, thus reducing network operating costs.

The scope of the Multi-Services Application Module includes urban fiber-optic networks, switching nodes and core networks of cellular and wired operators, government telecommunications systems, installation services and technical support for network equipment. This latest solution takes its rightful place in the MTS line - the recognized world leader in the field of control and measurement equipment.

The main technical capabilities of the platform:

  • Physical layer testing of 10 Gbps Ethernet LANs and WANs at operating wavelengths of 850 nm, 1310 nm, 1550 nm (single port)
  • 10Mbps - 1Gbps Ethernet Network Testing (Single or Dual Port)

Ethernet, IT, TCP and UDP support:

The Multi-Services Application Module supports testing Ethernet interfaces from 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps (LAN-PHY and WAN-PHY) up to the TCP/UDP layer. However, the proven test methods developed for Carrier Ethernet networks remain the same regardless of speed. The capabilities of the built-in test algorithms range from simple BER tests and checking the availability of a connection between specified nodes to measuring throughput, percentage of lost frames, delay jitter, packet round-trip times, and compliance of all these characteristics with a given service level agreement (SLA).

Additional features and applications:

The MTS-6000A supports a wide variety of configurations and options, including: the ability to run tests independently on two ports simultaneously; a set of modules for the rapid detection of problems in fiber-optic networks, including an optical source, a high-precision power meter, an optical reflectometer (OTDR), chromatic dispersion (CD) and polarization mode dispersion (PMD) meters, a WDM multiplexer; visual quality analyzer and microscope for inspection and cleaning of fiber optic cables; remote control device for Ethernet and IP networks.
