VIAVI has introduced a 400G module for its OneAdvisor 800 range of field testers, to provide advanced 400G transport test and maintenance functionality for business service and network core technicians working in the field. Combining its transmission protocol and fibre network modularity, the OneAdvisor 800 offers testing performance for technicians who must carry their gear into the field.

When combining OneAdvisor 800 capabilities, field technicians can test transport (400G, ZR/ZR+/coherent) and fibre (OTDR, optical spectrum analysis, bi-directional fibre certification) environments. In addition, OneAdvisor 800 allows wireless work groups to add wireless test capabilities (LTE, 5G, C-RAN, O-RAN) as their needs evolve in the future. The platform leverages VIAVI Test Process Automation and FiberComplete PROTM, a suite of fibre test and certification capabilities which enable field technicians to certify and troubleshoot any fibre link, is also available.

“Service providers worldwide are seeking ways to equip their field teams with test solutions that enable a reliable test and troubleshooting process, while also seeing a quicker return on investment. The OneAdvisor 800 provides this in a way no other tester does with functionality that serves broad network demands, including 400G,” said Kevin Oliver, Vice President and General Manager, Converged Instruments and Virtual Test, VIAVI. “With the ability to carry all they need into the field, technicians reach a new level of skill and efficiency, even with minimal or no training.”
