The compact, battery-powered and easy-to-use MT1000A is multi-function tester that can be configured with an array of transport testing functions. It can be used to install and maintain communication networks from 1.5 Mbps to 100 Gbps. The lightweight instrument simplifies the collection and interpretation of data with an easy-to-use GUI and clear summaries to enable users of any skill level to operate the instrument to its full potential. It now also features the ability to test 5G networks. For example, the one-way latency between two separate points can be measured easily using two MT1000A testers.
Judge's Comment: "This is an important tool to add to the MSO's array. If the MSO wants to take part in the emerging 5G market opportunity, the more stringent requirements of eCPRI will become standard language in service level agreements."
