Anritsu introduces high-performance BERT for the cloud era

Anritsu MP1900A signal quality analyzer

Anritsu has introduced the MP1900A signal quality analyser, a next-generation bit-error rate test (BERT) platform designed to meet the test and measurement requirements driven by cloud and data centre operators.

The new instrument is the successor to the MP1800A, which has been on the market since 2007. Back then telecom operators and carriers called the shots. Now the data centre and storage vendors are moving the market in new directions and influencing test requirements at all levels in the value chain, from operators through to the chip and module manufacturers.

Anritsu improves all-in-one test set for multichannel modules

Anritsu has launched the BERTWave MP2100B, an all-in-one test set with integrated bit error-rate tester (BERT) and sampling oscilloscope, designed for testing optical modules in research and production environments.

The MP2100B is the successor to the company’s popular MP2100A. Supporting up to four channels rather than two, the instrument provides more efficient evaluation of multichannel optical modules.

MP1800A BERT

Anritsu today introduced a high-sensitivity error detector and other additions to its MP1800A BERT (bit error rate tester) signal quality analyser to support multi-channel BER measurements up to 32.1Gbit/s. The enhanced MP1800A is suitable for testing the backplanes, cables, and interconnects used in the next generation of ultra-high speed network equipment.

Fibre Visualizer

Anritsu has launched its new Fibre Visualizer tool. 

The company says that, as a function on the MT9083 series of optical time-domain reflectometers (OTDR),  the Fibre Visualizer provides a new level of insight into optical fibre cables, connections and splices.

This enables installers to more quickly and reliably check the quality of an optical fibre installation, using automated processing on the test equipment rather than requiring expert analysis of an image or trace.
