Tektronix CTS710 - SONET Test Set
|| Tektronix CTS710 - The ANSI standards for SONET specify requirements for the network element (ADM, multiplexers, terminals, etc.) interfaces. Installation, commissioning, maintenance and repair of the SONET network involves the challenge of testing to ANSI standards. The CTS 710 is ready for the challenge to assist with these and other testing needs. In one configurable, expandable and upgradable instrument you will find everything required to do your testing.
The CTS 710 is a rugged portable test set designed not only for your current tasks; through its unique architecture, it will grow with you as SONET grows. When you require additional capabilities such as optical interfaces, jitter analysis, ATM testing, etc., you can add such functionality to your CTS 710. This upgradability is important due to evolving nature of the standards, test requirements and equipment capabilities.
The CTS 710 is part of a new generation of test sets combining various different functions in one instrument with the power to go beyond basic testing. The modular nature of the test set allows you to configure the instrument to your needs, without the cost of unwanted built-in capabilities. Starting with a low cost platform which addresses your basic SONET testing needs, you can expand its capabilities as desired with a growing number of options.
Easy to Use
The CTS 710 incorporates a number of new productivity features:
AutoScan - Graphically presents the incoming signal structure and allows easy instrument setup
Pass/Fail Testing - Automates following a written test procedure
TroubleScan - Highlights error, alarms and defects
Graphical Displays - For historical trend analysis
Online Help - For quick assistance with operation
Disk Drive - For easy storage of instrument setups, Pass/Fail Test and results
This instrument employs innovative hardware technology which reprograms itself, depending on the operational mode. Future demands regarding access and control of particular bytes are easily reprogrammed. Upgrades are distributed on disks.
