OSA-500 Series

OSA-500 Series

Industry-leading solutions for CWDM/DWDM- and ROADM testing-based systems up to 100GBps

The VIAVI OSA-500RS accurately validates optical performance under extreme conditions as networks are continually pushed to higher levels and ROADMs are added for uninterrupted service.

The OSA-500RS delivers highly valuable benefits to operators and NEMs who commission, install, upgrade, or troubleshoot anywhere within the fiber network ecosystem.

T-BERD/MTS-8000 Scalable Multitest Platform

VIAVI offers a wide range of OSA modules for its T-BERD®/MTS family of multi-application platforms.

The T-BERD/MTS-8000 is the world’s most scalable test platform for next-generation high-speed network deployment (40 G and 100 G) and offers physical, optical, and transport/ Ethernet testing capabilities.

Highlights

  • OSA-500R/500RS with in-band OSNR method to measure the true in-band OSNR in ROADM-based systems
  • InBand OSNR measurement time is significantly reduced using a fast polarization controller
  • Internal online wavelength calibration guarantees highest wavelength accuracy and requires no recalibration, thus significantly reducing service costs
  • High filter selectivity and lab optical performance over the full band, from 1250 to 1650nm, in a field-modular design

Applications

  • Measurement of the true in-band OSNR in Agile Optical networks including ROADM testing and dispersion compensating modules
  • DWDM and CWDM system testing during installation, maintenance, and network upgrade
  • Automated DWDM passive and active component testing
  • System verification testing according to the customer’s preset limits
  • Verification of ROADM configurations in Agile Optical Networks
  • Full-band optical spectrum analyzer for the ONT platform, MTS-8000 / T-BERD 8000, MTS-6000 / T-BERD 6000

Key Features

  • New Optical Polarization Splitting method (OPS-method, VIAVI pat pending) for measuring the true in-band OSNR in ROADM based networks
  • Future-proof design with a wide tuning range of 1250 to 1650 nm that is suitable for all optical DWDM and CWDM (Metro) networks up to 100GBps
  • Channel drop option for troubleshooting and fault location. lsolation of a single channel out of the entire spectrum for further in-depth signal analysis with BERT or a Q-factor meter
  • Software option for PMD testing based on the fixed analyzer PMD test method
  • Built-in optical component test applications for laser diodes, LEDs, and optical amplifiers
