JDSU has released a short-range LAN (SRL) OTDR for the T-BERD/MTS-6000 and T-BERD/MTS-8000 optical test platforms, providing a unique testing combination of up to five wavelengths in both multimode and single-mode.

The SRL OTDR complements the existing range of OTDR modules within the T-BERD/MTS family. The SRL OTDR is said to offer several industry-leading capabilities, including 0.5/2.5m Event/Attenuation dead zones and wavelength combinations of up to four wavelengths in multimode/single-mode and five wavelengths when adding out-of-band testing at 1,625nm.

The SRL OTDR provides unique, one-button automated OTDR testing that helps save time and reduces errors in the field, said JDSU. It is optimized for 10GbE networks. The SRL OTDR can be combined with all required connection check options available for the T-BERD/MTS-6000 and T-BERD/MTS-8000: connector inspection (VIP), end-to-end connectivity and trace faults in patch panel cabling (VFL), patch cord testing (LTS), power measurements (LTS), and Optical Return Loss (ORL).
