Clock Recovery Unit Introduced by Anritsu Allows E/O, O/E Converter to Evaluate OTN Devices, Modules, and Systems

9/17/2002 - Anritsu introduces the MU967703A clock recovery unit (CRU) that enables the MP9677B E/O, O/E converter to evaluate Optical Transport Network (OTN) devices, modules and systems operating at 10.709 Gb/s per ITU-T G.709 OTU-2. The addition of the MU967703A further enhances the performance of the MP9677B, which is the only combined E/O and O/E converter in the world with the 80 MHz clock recovery bandwidth required for accurate jitter measurement at 10 Gb/s, as specified in the ITU-T O.172 standard.

With the introduction of the MU967703A, three separate CRUs are now available for integration with the MP9677B. In addition to the MU967703A for OTN 10.709 Gb/s rates, Anritsu also offers CRUs supporting 9.953 Gb/s and 10.664 Gb/s FEC rates. Separate CRUs provide customers with cost efficiencies and flexibility. As is the case with the other CRUs, the MU967703A is designed with a bandwidth selector that enables the recovered clock to switch between "Wide" or "Narrow" bandwidth mode, depending upon whether a jitter or BER measurements need to be made.

The MP9677B can be used with Anritsu’s MP1763C/MP1764C 12.5 Gb/s bit error rate test (BERT) systems or the MP1570A/A1 SONET/SDH and MP1777A Jitter Analyzers to provide complete OC-192/STM-64 jitter measurement solutions. Both configurations completely comply with the ITU-T O.172 standard.

Pricing for the MU967703A is $99,350 and the MP9677B is $182,500. Delivery is 10 to 12 weeks.
