Description

Installing Complex Mobile Networks

The worldwide spread of mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets using SNS, video streaming, etc., is causing an explosive increase in data traffic volumes. Mobile network base stations are configured using various methods, but the antenna radio section uses an optical fiber to connect the BBU an RRH passing via a general interface called the CPRI/OBSAI. The need for optical fiber fault finding and transport quality tests increases as the Mobile network environment becomes more advanced. Installing the 10G Multirate Module MU100010A/100G Multirate Module MU100011A and OTDR Module MU100020A/21A/22A in the Network Master Pro MT1000A supports all-in-one optical fiber fault finding and transport quality tests.
Using the MU100020A/21A/22A, scratched or dirty connectors at fiber cable connections can be detected as fault locations from the excessive optical reflections to support fault finding and troubleshooting of Mobile optical networks. Additionally, work efficiency is greatly improved using the Fiber Visualizer function supporting Easy-to-Use/Easy-to-Report testing.

OTDR Module Applications

Generally, depending on the optical fiber measurement environment, OTDR measurements require multiple settings such as distance range, pulse width, measurement time, etc., making work difficult for technicians who do not generally use an OTDR. When performing Pass/Fail evaluation of an optical circuit for a report, a simple intuitive GUI is key to improving work efficiency.
The MU100020A/MU100021A/MU100022A emphasizes easy-to-understand operability using three application measurement modes: OTDR Measurement, FTTA Measurement, and OLTS Measurement.

otdr  Standard OTDR Measurements

The OTDR measurement results are displayed as a trace showing the optical fiber length, losses and size of reflections, as well as an easy-to-view summary of the analysis results on the Fiber Visualizer screen.

  • Event icons showing characteristics of each connector, splice, and far end
  • Pass/Fail evaluations based on user-settable threshold values

The user can set any threshold value for each event. If the Pass/Fail evaluation settings prescribed in the engineering manual are set beforehand, the measured optical fiber loss status can be easily distinguished visually at the same time as measurement ends.

ftta  FTTA Measurements

Comparatively short optical fibers of around several hundred meters in length are usually installed at the Mobile fronthaul FTTA. In this type of measurement environment, measurements made by different operators under different conditions commonly have inconsistency problems at later data processing.
At FTTA measurement, the optical fiber installation measurement conditions are fixed previously, so measurements are always made under the same conditions whoever is performing measurement.
Like the OTDR measurement function, each measurement result can be analyzed at the Trace and Fiber Visualizer screens.

construction  Construction Measurement

The Construction mode measurement greatly simplifies through its innovative wizard. In particular, this is very effective function for user when multi-fibers construction is the task at hand. The ability to auto name and save the traces using a wizard, this allows the ability to adjust naming based on test direction, wavelength and fiber number. This minimizes the required user input especially on large fiber count cables which require testing on multiple wavelengths. Ensures no lost data and minimizes required input from the onsite engineers.

olts  OLTS Measurements

At measurement of the optical Physical layer, the first basic measurement is loss measurement using a light source and power meter. With a built-in light source and power meter as standard, the MU100020A/MU100021A/MU100022A can be used as an optical loss test set (OLTS). In addition, measurement results can be managed at the Loss Table for Pass/Fail evaluation of individual data based on set threshold values.
