Viavi unveils testing solutions for next-generation networks
Viavi Solutions has introduced a range of solutions designed for testing tomorrow’s network elements in today’s lab, production and manufacturing environments.
Amongst these is the MAP-300 photonic metrology and test automation platform, the third generation of an industry standard. A multi-user architecture supported by a customisable user interface to prioritise key data, along with remote automation over direct IP socket connections, help increase capital utilisation and reduce the cost of test. Full backward compatibility with MAP-200 modules enable current WSS, 400GE and coherent line system manufacturers to protect their installed base.
The mOLM-C1 module for the MAP-200 benchtop system and the PCT-rm application suite are designed to create a cost-effective, space-optimised solution. It has the ability to measure four wavelengths at the same time and can share scripts and data between units.
Two new Optical Network Tester (ONT) products, the ONT-800 mainframe and the 800G Flex module, build on the industry reference ONT-600 to deliver the bandwidth, power and cooling requirements for testing at 800G per lambda and beyond.
The ONT-800 enables multi-service testing for R&D, SVT and manufacturing. The 800G Flex module’s advanced test coverage, including PHY, PCS and Ethernet layers, gives manufacturers an advantage when designing and manufacturing emerging technologies. The ONT-800 family delivers impressive port density for all applications in the product development lifecycle, and a full-bandwidth 400G ODUflex in OTUC4, via FlexO or OTLC4.
The FVAm series of benchtop microscopes automates the inspection and test process and has the ability to automatically test multi-fibre connectors in less than 20 seconds.
