Sunrise adds OTDR and fiber inspection to test platform

The RxT-4000 Fiber Optics Toolkit (FOT) and the FiberScope inspection option has been added to Sunrise Telecom Inc.’s RxTTM Smart Productivity Test Platform.

The addition of the modules provides additional test and verification capabilities for operators deploying fiber optic infrastructures that enable new voice and data business services, next-generation mobile communications and cloud-based applications.

When paired with the rugged, battery-operated RxT Smart Productivity Test Platform, the RxT FOT module is an integral solution for installation, troubleshooting, and maintenance of Carrier Ethernet and SONET/SDH fiber optic cables. Combined with the RxT’s large portfolio of modules, which include solutions for 10GE, SONET/SDH and T1/E1, the RxT can now test from physical layer to services with one test set, resulting in shorter learning and training time for users.

The fiber optics solution will enable communications service providers deploying new broadband networks to inspect fiber connectors, analyze fiber for impairments and, if necessary, pinpoint the location and identity of the impairments.

The RxT FOT, which is available in multiple wavelength combinations for testing single-mode and multi-mode fibers, features fiber optics characterization which records event location and identity for the fiber under test.  The platform, which incorporates quad wavelength testing, and auto and manual mode configuration, offers a one-button ‘Auto Test Mode’ to simplify testing for even the most inexperienced user.

Controlled from a single hand-held set, the fully-connected, workflow-optimized, RxT Smart Productivity Test Platform enables field technicians to install, verify and troubleshoot 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE backhaul circuits and services.
