JDSU added 43G OTN multiplexing functionality to its T-BERB/MTS 8000 40G transport module.

The T-BERD addresses fiber characterization, optical spectrum analysis, service verification and trouble shooting needs in one platform. The 40G transport module also includes all T-BERD/MTS-8000 mainframe hallmarks, including a large, integrated touch screen and easy-to-use GUI in a rugged, compact and scalable form factor.

Lars Friedrich, vice president and general manager in JDSU’s Communications T&M business segment pointed to the need drive “to deploy and troubleshoot 40/43G links for carrier interconnect and client-side applications instead of limiting the use of this high-speed technology to the core network.”

Specifically, the new functionality provides ODU multiplexing support, enabling service providers to test OTU containers within a 43G OTN circuit at service installation and generate test reports that verify service level agreements.
