The JDSU T-BERD 8000, in use by every major telecommunications operator worldwide, is the most innovative fiber field-test platform available -- easy-to-use, compact and lightweight. At OFC/NFOEC 2007, JDSU will introduce an in-band optical spectrum analyzer (OSA) for the T-BERD 8000 that uses a new, accurate measurement method for live optical systems, including ROADM networks, without the need for service interruption --making it able to test optical performance in the agile optical network. JDSU will also introduce two additions to the T-BERD 8000 Transport Module: A hardware enhancement for testing optical transport network (OTN) interfaces, enabling users to turn up and troubleshoot OTN circuits in the field; and an Ethernet-over-SDH/SONET (EoS)/NewGen SONET/SDH module that provides the ability to test Ethernet transported over SDH or SONET, helping operators cost-effectively deliver Ethernet-based services. The two transport module enhancements are interoperable.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
- spectrum analyzer
- A scanning device used to cyclically tune through a given frequency range to determine the amplitude-frequency distribution of the signals present, usually by displaying output on a chart or cathode-ray tube.
