Anritsu launches portable 400G network tester

July 31, 2020
Anritsu's new Network Master Pro MT1040A meets product inspection to installation and maintenance test needs for today’s high-speed networks.

Anritsu Company has introduced the Network Master Pro MT1040A, a portable 400G network tester for evaluating the transmission quality of networks operating at speeds ranging from 10 Mbps to 400 Gbps.

Per the manufacturer, "Featuring a compact design, ease-of-use, and broad test capabilities, the MT1040A can be used to efficiently and confidently install, maintain, and troubleshoot communications devices, transceivers, cables, networks, and data centers up to 400 Gbps."

Directly inserted next-generation QSFP-DD and OSFP multi-rate modules and break-out cables up to 400G with native SFP+/SFP28, QSFP, and OSFP interfaces allow the Network Master Pro MT1040A to perform forward error correction (FEC) verification, Bit Error Rate, throughput and latency measurements.

These tests verify performance of high-speed network cables and devices; private and distributive networks; access, metro and core network segments; mobile edge computing, and data center TOR/COR equipment addressing new 5G application services.

Communications carriers, network installation and maintenance companies, and back office and data center personnel can use the tester to ensure the transmission quality of 400G Ethernet, OTN, eCPRI/RoE/CPRI/OBSAI, and Fibre Channel networks and elements.

The Network Master Pro MT1040A has a built-in 400G Ethernet FEC analysis function for quality evaluations of QSFP-DD and OSFP optical modules and 400G devices and equipment. Additionally, the MT1040A can be configured with compatible OTDR modules to simultaneously conduct optical line measurements to troubleshoot optical fiber faults.

Throughput and latency measurements between two remote points using GPS can be achieved by linking dual MT1040A instruments – one as a local and another as a remote. Using this functionality, uplink communications speed can be measured by the local tester while simultaneous and accurate analysis of the downlink communications speed is done by the remote unit.

Designed for today’s installation and maintenance (I&M) environments, the battery-powered MT1040A has a large 9-inch touch panel for excellent operability. Measurements are simplified by a built-in remote control over network capability, as well as automatic test functions and multiple pass/fail evaluations that can be performed by pressing a single button.
