  • 3-wavelength Optical Filter Measurement System for GE-PON

    A 3-wavelength optical filter for GE-PON splits 1490 nm and 1550nm optical signals, and pass a 1310 nm optical signal in the return direction. This measurement system measures the insertion losses of wavelengths passing between ports and the isolation of wavelengths blocked.
  • Optical Fiber Amplifier Measurement System

    An optical fiber amplifier is an indispensable device for WDM transmission systems. This measurement system characterizes gains and noise figures (NF) of the fiber amplifier by measuring input light to an optical fiber amplifier, which was multiplexed using multiple light sources, as well as amplified output light with an optical spectrum analyzer. A highpower sensor allows for measuring total output power.
  • Transceiver Measurement System

    The 10Gbit/s optical transceiver modules such as XFP or SFP+ are frequently used in transmission systems and Ethernet systems. The measuring system for such modules requires many instruments including power supplies, multi-meters and the signal generators to control optical transceiver modules. The AQ2200 Multi Application Test System allows for building a space saving test system with a variety of plug-in modules.
  • GE-PON Test System

    To evaluate GE-PON systems used for FTTH networks, optical characteristics and IP traffic tests are performed. Since a GE-PON consists of OLTs and multiple ONUs, efficient measurement of multiple ports is required. Utilizing the multiple port AQ2200-4xx optical switch makes it possible to build an efficient automated measurement system by distributing the signal in a custom test network. Since the AQ2200-331 Optical Attenuator is equipped with a monitor power meter, the ONU optical receiving level can be adjusted without changing the fiber connection..
