It simplifies collecting and interpreting data with an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) that allows users of any skill level to operate the instrument to its full potential. The MT1000A is a multi-function tester that can be configured with an array of transport testing functions and OTDR modules to ensure field professionals have the tools needed today plus the expandability for future technologies – all of which are field upgradeable.
