T-BERD/MTS 5882 Handheld Network Tester from Viavi Solutions.

Viavi Introduced T-BERD/MTS 5882 Handheld Network Tester for Mobile and Cable Networks

  • T-BERD/MTS 5882 from Viavi Solutions enables testing for emerging 5G and Remote PHY technologies.
  • The T-BERD/MTS 5882 packing into a small form factor features to enable fiber characterization, multi-protocol service activation, troubleshooting, and maintenance for next-generation mobile and cable networks.

Emerging network architectures require precise timing to synchronize distributed equipment, such as with the IEEE 1588v2 Precision Timing Protocol. This applies to mobile networks with distributed 5G radios interoperating with LTE macro cells, in cable networks where distributed Remote PHY devices (RPD) require synchronization for proper DOCSIS functionality, and in utility networks for the synchronization of distributed power transmission equipment. In all cases, ensuring that equipment is properly synchronized is critical for high-quality network operation, yet this is becoming more difficult to achieve due to growing complexity and convergence.

The move to 5G, Remote PHY and other distributed technologies means even more stringent synchronization targets must be met to prevent service degradation. The T-BERD/MTS 5882 solution is optimized for fiber characterization, multi-protocol service activation, troubleshooting and maintenance across mobile, cable and power utility networks.
