Lightwave Innovation Award Finalists

Anritsu is Nominated as a Finalist for Two Prestigious Lightwave Innovation Awards

Lightwave Innovation Reviews 2018 Finalist logo

Anritsu is proud to be a finalist of the Lightwave Innovation Awards for its Network Master™ Pro MT1000A and PAM4 BER test solution featuring the Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A. This annual optical communications technology recognition program uses a panel of independent judges to review the products submitted by technology developers. The winners will be announced during the Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition (OFC) on March 14, at 4:00 PM in San Diego, CA.

Anritsu Network Master™ Pro MT1000A

The Anritsu Network Master™ Pro MT1000A multi-function field tester has a leading-edge modular design that makes it easy and cost-effective to test network performance. Its newest option is the MU100040B CPRI RF Module with BBU Emulation that reduces operational expense (OpEx) and time associated with deploying LTE network sites. The new capability improves efficiency by providing wireless technicians, engineers and contractors with the necessary tools to validate that a Nokia/Alcatel-Lucent (Nokia/ALu) Remote Radio Head (RRH) is installed properly and functional before the Base Band Unit (BBU) is commissioned while they are on the ground through the Mobile Fronthaul Fiber Optical interface.

Its all-in-one multi-platform design allows the MT1000A to be configured as a comprehensive installation and maintenance solution that reduces the number of instruments required in the field for time and cost benefits. Other modules include:

  • 10G/100G Multirate modules that provide strong functions and performance from 1.5 Mbps to 10 Gbps, and from 10 Mbps to 100 Gbps, respectively. The modules provide flexible support for communications network up to 100G.
  • A high-performance GPS disciplined oscillator module for commissioning and verifying mobile backhaul for PTP commissioning tests, as well as protocol tests.
  • With the OTDR module installed, the MT1000A supports measurement of optical fibers in long-distance core and metro networks, as well as mobile fronthaul and backhaul optical loss and return loss.
Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A

The Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A is an 8-slot modular type, high-performance BERT with excellent expandability by installing 32 Gbit/s multi-channel PPG, ED, and Jitter/Noise injection modules for signal integrity analysis of 400G devices. Functions for evaluating the physical layer of high-speed interfaces like the built-in Link Training/LTSSM analysis function supports all-in-one measurement of high-speed network interfaces such as 200GbE/400 GbE, and bus interfaces such as PCIe and USB Type C.

With 8 slots, the Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A can be easily customized to support more measurement channels. In addition, adding a remote-box expansion, such as the PAM4 converter and 64G MUX/DEMUX, offers new required functions and performance without wasting previous capital equipment costs. With cost-effective upgrade support for next-generation interfaces, such as 400GbE, the MP1900A will play a key role in bringing customers’ products to market more quickly. The design providers a higher level of future proofing the test investment by providing a simple and more efficient upgrade path.

The all-in-one design of the MP1900A allows the solution to support early stage R&D evaluations ranging from next-generation 200GbE/400GbE network interfaces to PCI Express bus interfaces. Few instruments provide this level of support along with best-in-class performance.

Anritsu is committed to developing innovative test solutions that help move technology forward and meet the ever-emerging needs of the marketplace.
