Anritsu has launched the BERTWave MP2110A series, which is optimised for inspecting 100Gb/s multi-channel optical modules. The BERTWave MP2110A is an all-in-one bit error rate tester and sampling oscilloscope used to evaluate optical modules, including 100 Gigabit Ethernet, InfiniBand EDR and 32G Fibre Channel.
Building upon its capabilities in both wireless and wireline test equipment, Anritsu has developed a comprehensive test solution that helps mobile operators to ensure the proper installation and operation of the fronthaul component of their LTE networks.
Adoption of Centralized-Radio Networks (C-RAN or Cloud-RAN) has been on the rise as operators are busy increasing bandwidth of mobile communications networks to keep up with ever-increasing demand brought about by the explosive growth in mobile data traffic.
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.

Anritsu, a provider of test and measurement equipment to telecommunications companies, has added the new protocol test cases for IMS (IP multimedia sub-system) emergency services calls to the suite of test cases supported on the widely used ME7834L protocol conformance test (PCT) system.
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.

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.
