Anritsu Enhances Network Master™ Pro MT1040A to Provide Broad Support of 400GBASE-ZR Used in Data Centers


New Options Allow All-in-one Test Set to Lessen DCI Verification Workloads by Performing Breakout-type Communications Quality Tests More Efficiently

Allen, TX – March 28, 2022 – Anritsu Company introduces 400GBASE-ZR standard optical modules for its Network Master™ Pro MT1040A to support verification of economical data center interconnects (DCI). Anritsu has also developed optional Ethernet 4x100G N Port BERT and Ethernet 2x200G N Port BERT software for the MT1040A that allow the all-in-one test set to conduct breakout-type communications quality tests to reduce DCI test workloads.

The enhanced Network Master Pro MT1040A supports tests for data centers integrating 400GBASE-ZR circuits, as well as breakout-type interfaces to help lower data center construction and expansion costs. Anritsu developed the options to meet the demand for efficient testing of DCIs necessitated by data center growth caused by 5G, teleworking, online teaching, and digital transformation (DX) advances. The integration of DCIs is a more efficient and effective alternative that designing new hyperscale data centers.

With the expanded functionality, the Network Master Pro MT1040A is the ideal measurement solution for evaluating communications quality of data centers integrating new DCI technology. Users can conduct accurate, reliable transceiver and equipment acceptance tests to verify breakout-type interfaces that are becoming prominent due to their space-saving, lower power, and cost advantages. The MT1040A can be used for commissioning, maintaining, and troubleshooting communications networks, and for quality evaluation and testing of communications equipment.

Network Master Pro MT1040A Overview

With the enhancements, the Network Master Pro MT1040A is an ideal tool for data center operators, communications carriers, network installation and maintenance organizations, and communications equipment vendors. It is a portable B5-size tester for 400G that has customized expandability with easy operation. The all-in-one Network Master Pro supports various network types, and its full range of built-in versatile functions simplify field testing.
