MILPITAS, Calif. -- JDSU today announced that its pocket-sized family of fiber optic testers is now available through an authorized network of distributors. The family of products includes power meters and laser sources designed for specific applications in telecommunications, cable and enterprise environments. The products will be on display at OFC/NFOEC 2008 in San Diego, California, February 26-28 (booth #2021, Hall C; FTTx Center, booth #3139, Hall E; and booth #703, Hall B).

Addressing basic functionalities needed for fiber optic power measurement and loss testing, JDSU’s pocket-sized light sources and optical power meters provide accurate measurements in a simple, entry-level unit at an at¬tractive price. Just 3.9 inches (10 cm) long, the testers are also fully interoperable with JDSU’s fiber inspection and cleaning solutions by providing results from the device under test (DUT) once the fiber is inspected and cleaned.

“Leveraging more than 20 years of experience in the handheld test market, our line of pocket-sized testers are low-cost, rugged, compact and easy-to-use – in other words, ideal for the rigors of continuous use by contractors and network installers,” said Assaji Aluwihare, general manager of the Network and Enterprise Test unit in JDSU’s Communications Test and Measurement business segment. “Used with our fiber inspection, cleaning and test solutions, the handheld testers also help test technicians get the job done right – the first time – adding that much more value to the industry’s broadest portfolio of fiber optic test instruments, systems and services.”
