Great news! In general, the DSPs within coherent receivers do an excellent job of mitigating PMD. So good in fact that only 1 NRT-PMDA is needed to verify and prove the PMD tolerance of modern coherent dual-polarization receivers. (Don’t believe us? Read our blog on the topic here.) This is a huge cost savings over more expensive PMD sources and emulators. And an even greater saving of test and measurement time and effort.
NRT’s PMDAs are also outstanding for fast, reliable, quantitative and repeatable comparisons between various and separate receivers, test stations and facilities.
ONLY 1 PMDA STATE IS ALL YOU NEED FOR COHERENT RECEIVER TESTING
Useful laboratory PMD standard
Highly reliable: all PM-fiber components, no moving parts
Passive optical devices: no electrical power required
Fixed PMD states with first order and second order PMD
Flat spectral response in the entire C-band
Useful for quick testing of key PMD states
Easy to be transported to various labs and in the field
Form Factor Options
Depending on customer’s technical spec requirements, NRT-PMDAs will come in one of the two form factors:
- A “plug and play” cassette that are easily installed into standard fiber optic distribution shelves.
- A small instrument-type bench top for easy lab testing.
Standard FC and SC connector types are available.
