RICHARDSON, Texas, Sept. 19, 2016 — Anritsu Co. has announced a 40/100-G measurement card option that expands the analysis capability of its Network Master Flex MT1100A optical transport tester. The module supports the generation and measurement of 100-GbE signals using RS-FEC, OTN, SDH/SONET, Ethernet and many other technologies. A comprehensive field test solution, the Network Master Flex MT1100A can be used by engineers and field technicians to ensure transport equipment, core networks and data centers operating up to 100G are in compliance with the RS-FEC standard. The Advanced Module MU110013A has various clock outputs at the CFP2 port to verify optical module quality. When the clock is input as a trigger into an optical oscilloscope, optical module waveform verification is supported. The module provides the ability to encode/decode IEEE 802.3bj RS-FEC for 100 GbE transport, as well as correctable/uncorrectable errors for threshold FEC tolerance testing. Installing the CAUI4 four-lane BER measurement option into the Network Master Flex MT1100A enables error insertion into each lane and BER calculation on each lane for easy module evaluation.
