JDSU (NASDAQ:JDSU) has introduced its latest high-bandwidth, high-capacity network services field tester, the T-BERD/MTS 5800, which incorporates critical functions for supporting wireless / mobile backhaul applications. The company says the new 10Gbps handheld tester's core functionality includes the ability to validate synchronization mechanisms in Ethernet networks, for example IEEE 1588 and synchronous Ethernet, to ensure that reliable mobile handoffs are made from cell site to cell site and service degradation is avoided.

According to the company, the T-BERD/MTS 5800 10Gbps handheld instrument is designed for Ethernet, SONET/SDH and PDH testing throughout the network’s entire service life cycle. It also supports JDSU’s widely deployed J-Complete test suite, a set of automated test capabilities designed for ease of use that enable cost savings and efficiency in installation and troubleshooting in the field. With integrated capture and decode, this enables field technicians regardless of experience level to perform guided turn-up and troubleshooting with reliable and repeatable results in a single instrument. This helps to decrease capex by eliminating the need for a separate analyzer and it decreases opex by enabling fast and easy installations.

“JDSU prides itself in innovation expertise the T-BERD/MTS 5800’s combination of size and functionality is unmatched in the industry, designed to offer our customers optimal testing efficiency for the deployment and maintenance of Carrier Ethernet networks, which are the backbone of future communications services,” comments Dr. Lars Friedrich, vice president and general manager in JDSU’s Communications Test and Measurement business segment. ”By supporting legacy and emerging technologies, all needs throughout the network’s entire service life cycle are covered, enabling a great return on investment for our customers.”
