From Physical Plant Integrity to Bandwidth Verification to Amplifier Tuning the CMA5000a is the Only Tool You Will Need!


From fiber installation to service deployment, the CMA5000a is designed to maximize network performance and accelerate the deployment of new services. Critical network parameters and performance can be monitored and network impairments quickly identified to accelerate the deployment of new services. Results can then be easily documented by the powerful Windows based platform simplifying and reducing the non-revenue generating activities associated with operating an optical network. A modular design with different size bay adapters allows you to customize your test set as needed adding further value.

As the leader in optical fiber and network characterization, the CMA5000a offers all the test applications required for comprehensive physical layer characterization, including: OTDR, Chromatic Dispersion, Polarization Mode Dispersion, Loss Test Set, and Optical Return Loss. Supplemental tools such as a Visual Fault Locator and Video Inspection Probe are also available for a complete testing solution. 


OTDR - The CMA5000a Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) application reduces the time to install, commission, and maintain fiber spans. Featuring a multitude of available wavelengths, up to 50 dB of dynamic range, and dead zones of about 1.0 m, the OTDR application is the ideal solution for testing long-haul backbone networks, Metro/Access networks and FTTx deployments that incorporate passive optical networks (PONs). The CMA5000a OTDR application also features SCPI command support for remote operation or automated testing routines.

PMD - The CMA5000a Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD) application characterizes the data rate capability of each fiber, quickly identifying which fibers are capable of providing higher data rates and increased revenue potential.

CD - The CMA5000a Chromatic Dispersion (CD) application provides accurate CD characterization to maximize bandwidth. This application quickly measures the chromatic dispersion, chromatic dispersion slope, and the zero-dispersion wavelength of any fiber type to allow optimized compensation.

OSA - The CMA5000a Optical Spectrum Analyser application provides a thorough way to evaluate DWDM and CWDM system performance. Channel wavelengths, spacing, drift and gain tilt can be measured ensuring your quality of service is maintained.
