All-round easy-to-use test tool for the daily operation accelerates access network trouble resolution -- efficiency and profitability go hand in hand.

The All-In-One Field Tester CMA 3000 is portable, compact, and user-friendly all-in-one field tester for fixed and mobile networks. It is designed specifically for technicians who install, maintain, and troubleshoot mobile-access, fixed-access networks.


The CMA 3000 is a powerful tool for a wide range of applications, including fast first-aid troubleshooting to comprehensive, in-depth and all-layer analysis of transmission problems. Fault location is greatly facilitated by the high degree of portability of the robust CMA 3000. This allows you make measurements at any suitable measuring point. Problems are pinpointed faster, there is less network downtime, and field visits are much more efficient.

The basic CMA 3000 configuration is the ideal instrument for measuring in-service and out-of-service transmission quality of 2 Mbps lines. With its SDH test module the CMA 3000 field test instrument also supports test and simultaneous bi-directional monitoring of SDH lines. Further options allow test and monitoring of Ethernet 10 Gbps, 1 Gbps, 1000 Mbps, 100 Mbps lines and V-series interfaces.

The modular design provides you with a clear and cost-effective upgrade path: by adding options the CMA 3000 becomes a highly flexible field tester with the ability to test a large number of interfaces and technologies, including IP over Ethernet, ATM, frame relay lines, and the Abis interface of GSM/GPRS networks. Other options turn the CMA 3000 into a very powerful and advanced signaling analyzer for GSM, GPRS/EDGE, SS7, and ISDN protocols.  VoIP and ISDN (PRI) call emulation can also be added as options.  Up to 8 VoIP calls or 8 ISDN (PRI) calls can be generated simultaneously. For one VoIP call at the time the voice quality measurement option can provide information on MOS and R-factor for the call.

With the Ethernet multistream option and an Ethernet interface option on the CMA 3000, the user can test and analyze up to 8 traffic streams on one Ethernet line. Hereby the user can test a congested networks ability to transport high priority traffic rather than lower priority traffic.

Stacked VLAN (Q-in-Q) is increasingly used in several types of Ethernet based networks. With a CMA 3000 equipped with Stacked VLAN option and Ethernet option the user have a powerful tool for testing such networks. The Stacked VLAN option supports up to 8 levels of VLAN tags.

MPLS (Multi Protocol Label Switching) allows efficient routing of traffic in packet based networks. The CMA 3000 equipped with MPLS option and Ethernet option gives the user a powerful tool for testing with this type of traffic

The Ethernet Service Activation Test option for the CMA 3000 allows the user to conduct tests in accordance with Y.1564 for up to 8 services.

The Synchronous Ethernet Test option for the CMA 3000 allows the user to conduct Test and analysis of the Synchronous Ethernet technologies SyncE (ITU-T G.826x) and of IEEE 1588 v2 (PTP).
