The ITU-T and ANSI standards for SDH/SONET specify requirements for the network element (ADM, multiplexers, terminals, etc.) interfaces. Installation, commissioning, maintenance and repair of the SDH/SONET network involves the challenge of testing to ITU-T and ANSI standards.

The CTS 700 Series is a rugged portable test set designed not only for your current tasks; though its unique architecture, it will grow with you as SDH and SONET grows. When you require additional capabilities such as optical interfaces, jitter analysis, ATM testing, etc., you can add such functionality to your CTS700.

The CTS750 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 SDH or SONET testing needs, you can expand its capabilities as desired with a growing number of options.

The CTS750 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 by disks.
