Trend Communications launches the Trend Multipro SDH - a portable, hand held tester for use by technicians working on SDH and PDH services to 2.5 Gbit/s. The rugged tester, the latest addition to the Trend Multipro range, covers SDH from STM-16 right down to STM-0, PDH from E4 down to E1 as well as T-Carrier at DS3 and DS1
The new, innovative and versatile battery operated tester employs a large touch screen which makes it very easy to use. The software modularity of the Multipro ensures that a wide variety of user features can be added covering installation, commissioning, maintenance and troubleshooting of SDH and other networks.
To allow simple and rapid tests the Trend Multipro SDH auto configures itself so minimising operator involvement. Tests which can be carried out by the instrument include BER, errors and alarms. Optical interface kits cover a wide range from of requirements and include short haul and long haul for both 1310 nm and 1550 nm wavelengths.
Sales and Marketing Director Ken Foan emphasised some of the significant features of the novel SDH tester. “We have listened to customers and included what they want: fast scan, user programmable pass/fail limits, full error performance tests, SFP (small form-factor pluggable) interfaces as well as capture of OH bytes.”
