VIAVI Upgrades Broad Testing Portfolio

Viavi solutions has launched new test and measurement offerings for the optical lab, production and manufacturing environments, enhancing the industry’s most complete line of photonic test modules.

VIAVI“In today’s complex network landscape, manufacturers face new challenges to address the increased demand for production volume, performance and compliance with new industry standards,” said Tom Fawcett, Vice President and General Manager, Lab and Production Business Unit, VIAVI. “As the industry quickly evolves, we work closely with industry-leading manufacturers to provide the tools they need for the development of next-generation technologies, continuing more than 30 years of innovation in photonics and fiber optic test to ensure a seamless transition to high-efficiency volume manufacturing.”

VIAVI has released six major enhancements to the LightDirectTM family of modules for their award-winning MAP-300 test platform, which was introduced last year, with a specific focus on supporting coherent modules and silicon photonics test applications.

  • New high power, C+L band, continuously tunable laser module, the mTLS-C1, the most compact on the market for its performance class.
  • Six new CW source types added to mSRC-C2 supporting all telecom telemetry wavelengths and critical new O-band additions, with both 1310nm DFB and high-power O-band broadband SLED now supported.
  • New variable back reflection module, the mVBR-C1, to support the requirements of the recent OIF specification for 400G-ZR.
  • Two new variants of the mPCX-C1,a full O-band version and a high-speed polarization scrambler, for manufacturing applications requiring only simple polarization scrambling.
  • Significant feature enhancements to the mVOA-C1module to support hardware triggers for LOS calibration, millisecond resolution disruption test modes, and new power control modes using external Optical Power Meters (OPMs).           
  • A new MPO and high-power integrating sphere for the mOPM-C1 along with the first release of OPMScope on MAP-300, converting a chassis of power meters into a powerful multi-channel logging and transient capture system.

The VIAVI CleanBlastPRO is the next generation in automated connector end-face cleaning systems, offering new features and capabilities to ensure clean end-faces for both single and multi-fiber connectors for the utmost in reliability and repeatability.
