    Anritsu introduces CMA5000a field testing platform


    Anritsu, a global provider of operational support solutions for advanced and converged networks, has announced the release of its new CMA5000a modular testing platform for installing and maintaining next generation networks.

    Until now, two types of field test equipment were available for technicians and engineers: over-featured laboratory equipment that lacked portability and ease of use or single application boxes that didn't provide the advanced capabilities required – neither of which offered everything needed to operate today's networks. In response to this common complaint, Anritsu engineers developed the CMA5000a multi-layer, field testing platform series which incorporates the best of both options.  Advanced, in-depth testing for all aspects of network installation and maintenance is now possible with a single product – from fiber characterization to transport optimization.

    "The CMA5000a is the first field testing platform with the capabilities and specifications of lab-grade test equipment but the portability and ease of use needed in the field" states Stephen Colangelo, Marketing and Business Development Director at Anritsu.  "By starting with the powerful and flexible CMA5000a platform, customers can customize the test set for the services they provide now…and in the future."
