VIAVI’s New Test and Measurement Solutions for Cable and Fiber Broadband Networks

VIAVI Solutions has introduced new test and measurement solutions to help service providers and contractors validate, qualify and troubleshoot cable and fiber broadband networks.

The newly introduced solutions from VIAVI, namely, the DSP TDR (Time Domain Reflectometer) and the OCC-4056C DWDM Optical Channel Checker, are aimed to deliver fast and accurate performance analysis and troubleshooting to ensure successful network installation and operation.

In today’s evolving landscape, the stakes are higher as cable networks are now positioned to take on a larger role in mobile backhaul for 5G with new capabilities enabled by DOCSIS 3.1 and distributed architectures such as Remote PHY, said the company

The VIAVI DSP TDR offers lab-grade functionality in a rugged, handheld form factor to accurately locate cable breaks or faults in the field, enabling outages to be addressed quickly for faster restoration of service. The unique feature of the VIAVI DSP TDR is that it uses “step” technology that continuously transmits while the receiver simultaneously listens for reflected signals, resulting in more accurate fault detection.

The new VIAVI OCC-4056C Optical Channel Checker is designed to work with the popular T-BERD/MTS-2000, 4000, and 5800 platforms. VIAVI notes that the solution forms the industry’s most comprehensive set of test solutions for DWDM and hybrid DWDM/ CWDM metro and access networks.

The OCC-4056C is a cost-efficient, field-optimized, all-in-one tool that enables technicians to quickly and easily confirm channel presence, frequency and power levels, validate new wavelength routes, and isolate issues to ensure that deployment, activation, and maintenance tasks are completed right — the first time — without disrupting existing services.

VIAVI will demonstrate the DSP TDR and OCC-4056C, along with a comprehensive portfolio of broadband network testing solutions, during ANGA COM to be held June 4-6 in Cologne, Germany.
