Transport testing for the T-BERD/MTS-8000 Platforms

The Transport module for the T-BERD/MTS-8000 Platforms enables service providers to rapidly, reliably and cost-effectively deploy Transmission services in one convenient package. An important complement to the existing T-BERD/MTS-8000 platforms product line, the module supports T1-10 G SDH/SONET, 10/100/Gig Ethernet, 10Gig Ethernet LAN/WAN PHY, IP, Fibre Channel and OTN testing in the industry’s most innovative test module.


  • Truly field tailored, the only integrated Ethernet, SDH/SONET, IP, Fibre Channel, OTN and PDH test solution available to the market, weighing under 7 kgs.
  • Battery operation up to 2 hours at 10 Gbps rates.
  • Practically unlimited field modularity: you can match any requirement for test function, size, weight, or price.
  • Reduce test times by up to 66% by testing up to 3 circuits simultaneously and independently.
  • Customer exchangeable connector types (FC, SC, LC, ST and DIN), eliminating the need for crossover cables.
  • Dual port design allows users to maximize port density by purchasing multiple SDH/SONET and GigE interfaces (2.7G – 155 Mbps optical).
  • Built-in optical connection check functions with a high accuracy power meter/source, VFL, ORL and video microscope options available ensure that today’s most common optical problems are solved.
  • Backwards compatible with existing MTS-5000 optical modules already in the field.
  • Coupled with the NewGen module, verify Generic Frame Procedure (GFP), Virtual Concatenation (VCAT), Link Capability adaptation scheme (LCAS) and Ethernet technologies.
  • Combined with the T-BERD/MTS-8000’s optical layer test modules, test the physical, photonic, transmission, and data layers all in one portable package.


  • Verify end to end network connectivity, throughput, and quality of service for all technologies.
  • Measure network and circuit performance with an array of Error and Alarm insertion and analysis capability.
  • Perform SLA and circuit acceptance routines via a variety of industry test standards.
  • Test Quality of Service metrics by verifying results such as Jitter, Delay, Service Disruption, Lost and Out of Sequence frames.
  • Verify network element characteristics with signal level and frequency measurements for all interfaces.
  • Ensure network synchronization with the modules selectable timing references.
  • Remotely operate the instrument with its web based Remote operation capability.
  • Enable Productivity enhancements via the easy-to-use graphical interface and saved setup capability.
