October 2, 2007, Milpitas, CA and Orlando, FL--JDSU has announced the latest generation of its MTS/T-BERD fiber-optic test line, the MTS/T-BERD 6000 LITE. A highly integrated, non-modular, compact, optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR) suited for the construction, fault location, troubleshooting, and maintenance of FTTx and access networks, the MTS/T-BERD 6000 LITE offers even inexperienced field service technicians a high-performance tool for broadband network quality and reliability. The tester will be on display this week at the 2007 FTTH Conference & Expo in Orlando, September 30-October 4 (booth 304).

The new product will be marketed as the T-BERD 6000 LITE in North America and the MTS-6000 LITE throughout Europe, Asia, and other regions.

"The JDSU MTS/T-BERD 6000 LITE is a full-featured OTDR and fault locator for the most demanding test conditions found in the last mile," said Enzo di Luigi, general manager of JDSU's fiber-optics Communications Test and Measurement group. "Our tester offers the best screen size in its class, facilitating OTDR and FTTx/access network test demands by simultaneously displaying the required information on one screen."

The MTS/T-BERD 6000 LITE troubleshoots any event that can degrade fiber-link quality using proprietary one-key functionality that pinpoints any fault on the network in a fraction of a second. Performance-wise, it provides the most accurate distance testing on the market. The MTS/T-BERD 6000 LITE also detects any fiber bending in the network and improves response rate with an instantaneous traffic-detection function.

For installation and maintenance, the MTS/T-BERD 6000 LITE provides a compact test unit and displays on its color screen all relevant information required for fiber qualification. The OTDR trace and table are displayed simultaneously, improving troubleshooting in FTTx/access networks by identifying terminations and splice points. All features usually available in dedicated, larger construction OTDR units are available in the compact MTS/T- BERD 6000 LITE.

The MTS/T-BERD 6000 LITE also has a connection check option, which can include a visual fault locator, a power meter, a continuous wave light source, and a video inspection probe. The tester's large screen enables easy analysis of the connector quality.

The JDSU MTS/T-BERD 6000 LITE exceeds Telcordia GR-196-CORE specifications including ruggedness, drop testing, and extended battery life.
