CMA 5000 Multi-Layer Network Test Platform Specifications
NetTest's CMA 5000 is the premier test and measurement solution for installing, commissioning and documenting fiber optic networks. Utilizing a common platform, the CMA 5000 provides complete testing for multiple network layers all at the touch of a single button. As a high performance, scalable solution, the CMA 5000 aids in accelerating the deployment of new services and optimizing network performance, while reducing the cost of measurement.
With its ability to span the Physical, Data Link, Network and Transport layers with test and measurement applications ranging from DWDM, SONET/SDH, Gigabit Ethernet, OTDR and Dispersion, the CMA 5000 is the ideal solution for any scenario.
With its PC based, open architecture design and common computer interface, the CMA 5000 is able to easily remain up-to-date with the latest applications necessary to install and maintain current and evolving telecommunication networks. Numerous test technologies have been incorporated into an expandable platform allowing a single unit to adapt and evolve to meet any testing need. Thus the CMA provides best-in-class performance for every testing application to dramatically decrease testing time, further reducing the cost of measurement.
The CMA 5000 is also designed to maximize network performance and accelerate the deployment of new services. The CMA 5000 allows you to quickly and easily characterize critical network parameters and diagnose network impairments. Network performance and reliability can quickly be documented to accelerate the deployment of new services. As the leader in optical fiber and network characterization, the CMA 5000 offers all of the test applications required for comprehensive physical layer characterization, including: OTDR, Chromatic Dispersion, Polarization Mode Dispersion, Loss Test Set and Optical Return Loss, Supplemental tools such as a Visual Fault Locator, integrated Talk Set and Video Inspection Probe are also available for a complete testing solution.
For characterizing and documenting performance levels, the CMA 5000's Optical Transport Analysis (OTA) application provides efficient, reliable testing of a multitude of parameters, including Alarm and Error Analysis, APS with 125 us resolution, Round Trip Delay measurement with 100 ns resolution and network availability and performance evaluation. The OTA application characterizes networks supplying PDH/T-carriers to SONET/SDH up to 10 Gb/s. The OTA's Troublescan features automatically detect problems, allowing network impairments to be identified and rectified quickly.
The CMA 5000 Gigabit Ethernet application measures critical parameters during network installation, including throughput, latency, burstability and frame loss, (as detailed in RFC 2544) to ensure proper and efficient deployment of services. For troubleshooting, the Channel Statistics option for the CMA 5000 allows the user to quickly identify the root cause of network impairments, not just the symptoms. The Channel Statistics option presents detailed statistics on all traffic received for up to 8,000 individual Ethernet or IP addresses, VLAN tags or MPLS labels. When combined with comprehensive, professional reporting, these features allow you to install, maintain, troubleshoot and document 10/100/1000 Mbps based Ethernet networks.
