The 5073 WDM plug-in module for the MTS 5100e/5200e family is a cost-effective solution for DWDM network maintenance in the C+L band (1525-1610nm).
Comprehensive DWDM test
The 5073 WDM module tests all the parameters necessary for maintenance of the DWDM network, including channel wavelength, frequency, channel spacing, power and optical signal to noise ratio (OSNR).
Fast Acquisition and Analysis of DWDM Data
« One button testing » means that 5073 WDM module performs all data acquisition and analysis with a single key-stroke. Parameters are presented over the full spectrum in wavelength and tabular formats, with a handy zoom function for more detailed analysis.
Efficient Testing of High Fiber Counts
To speed multiple fiber testing, 5073 WDM module features a macro function which can be user-programmed for automatic, successive measurement and analysis of large quantities of fibers.
All the test modules in the MTS 5100e/5200e range allow « multi-tasking » for continued data acquisition while test parameters are set-up or results are printed.
Advanced Modularity for the Field
The MTS 5100e and 5200e are the ideal platforms for outside plant applications. Equipped with the 5073 WDM module, the MTSe is the perfect tool to maintain DWDM networks. Optimized for field use (lightweight with 3.5 kg, up to 16 hours of operation and with no moving parts), it provides all test parameters to analyze the quality of a DWDM network of up to 10 Ghz channel spacing.
The WDM module is a new member of the family of MTSe modules, which include the essential tools for installation and maintenance of fiber optic links : OTDR, loss test set, Visual Fault Locator, talk set.
Switching between functions takes only seconds, enabling the user to concentrate on measurement or results, rather than on instrument configuration. The MTSe platform is the only unit able to measure fiber optic parameters and WDM parameters within seconds, without the need to swap modules.
Ready for Comprehensive Measurements and Statistical Analysis
Configurable user interface
The intuitive interface of the 5073 WDM module is highly user-configurable. Measurement units (nm or THz), SNR measurement set-up (left, right, left and right or custom) and grid (ITU or manual) are user-specified, and channels can be sorted by number, wavelength, power level or OSNR.
In addition to the main DWDM parameters which are measured automatically at the touch of a button, the 5073 WDM module can be used to compare total or partial optical power, level, wavelength, gain tilt and gain slope between two points. An innovative overlay function makes it easy to compare stored waveforms.
The 5073 WDM module can be used for statistical analysis of the results of longterm monitoring. User-defined limits identify potential problems, for effective preventative maintenance of the network.
The 5073 WDM module has a comprehensive file management system, which allows successive files to be named and stored automatically, semi-automatically or manually.
Automatic Maintenance Testing
During maintenance operation of a DWDM network, it is essential to have accurate knowledge of the optical spectrum, primarily the individual channel power and wavelengths, at critical points along the optical link : end terminals, optical amplifiers, add/drop nodes, cross connects and any other locations. Measuring the performance enables the operator to identify degradation or failure.
Complete Channel Analysis
The MTSe automatically provides all the necessary parameters to maintain a DWDM network. By pressing a single key, the MTSe performs an acquisition followed immediately by an analysis of the existing channels. This enables the user to rapidly detect if a channel is lower in power or missing, or if the entire network has been degraded.
Measurement parameters are presented over the full spectrum in a waveform, as well as in a tabular display. For easy analysis, a simple ‘click’ on the table brings the relevant waveform center screen, with a zoom function available for more detailed analysis. The MTSe automatically provides the following measurements for each channel:
- Power level
- Ratio between channel power level and composite power level
Composite power is also displayed, and slope gain and tilt gain are provided to indicate the quality of the amplified system.
