RICHARDSON, Tex. -- Anritsu Company introduces the MT1000A Network Master Pro, an all-in-one optical field instrument that redefines transport testing by having the ability to conduct Optical Transport Network (OTN) mapping of all client signals as well as multi-stage mapping in a lightweight, small portable package that is easy to use.

The MT1000A Network Master Pro is the first compact, all-in-one OTN tester that provides users with the capability to measure with Ethernet and SDH/SONET client signals, making it easier for technicians to install and maintain mobile and fixed-access, metro, and core transmission networks.

The MT1000A Network Master Pro, together with the MU100010A test module, provides all the capabilities required for field testing an OTN. It supports the new OTN features ODU0 and ODUflex, as well as Ethernet, Fibre Channel and SDH/SONET at rates up to 10 Gbps. Legacy PDH and DSn interfaces can also be measured with the MT1000A Network Master Pro. Field technicians can use the instrument to quickly and accurately locate and solve problems in the transport network without having to contact a remote network operations center.

Designed with dual ports at 10 Gbps, the MT1000A Network Master Pro can test at all supported interfaces and rates. The two ports can be used independently, effectively providing field technicians with two instruments in a single solution that improves test time and simplifies measurements while reducing cost-of-test. Two-port testing can also be used for in-service bi-directional monitoring of live traffic links, providing a new ability to maintain and optimize existing networks and test networks while in operation. The result is the ability to pinpoint problems faster and reduce network downtime. All test results can be converted into .pdf or XML reports for documentation and record-keeping.

Anritsu designed the MT1000A Network Master Pro specifically to address today’s field testing requirements. A large, nine-inch touch screen makes results easy to read and simplifies using the intuitive GUI of the MT1000A Network Master Pro. The small form factor makes the instrument easy to transport, even in confined spaces. Battery-operated, the MT1000A Network Master Pro can operate for up to three hours before needing to be recharged. Offering WLAN, Bluetooth and LAN connectivity options, the MT1000A Network Master Pro can be operated remotely.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
