Network Performance Tester MP1590B


The Anritsu MP1590B Network Performance Tester is capable of measuring IP networks up to 10 GbE using the Ethernet plug-in modules of the Anritsu MD1230B test system, as well as traditional functions including testing of PDH, DSn, SDH/SONET, and OTN equipment and jitter measurement, with only one box. A new EoS unit supports Ethernet over SONET/SDH measurement, virtual concatenation, and LCAS measurement to enable testing of next-generation SDH/SONET equipment. The Anritsu MP1590B can perform simultaneous applications — such as SDH/SONET, OTN, EoS, jitter, and Ethernet measurement — using combinations of plug-in units.

The new Anritsu MP1590B-17 or Anritsu MU159101A-17 Traffic Impairment Emulator option is a unique all-in-one solution that provides network impairment emulation and performance measurement for carriers and network equipment vendors offering real-time applications such as IPTV and VoIP. It enables the Anritsu MP1590B or Anritsu MP1591A to emulate network faults such as packet loss, error/packet overwrite, transmission delay, and packet jitter for both 10/100/1000M Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet.

The Anritsu MP1590B-30 High Precision Jitter Analysis option introduces new accuracy for jitter measurements and a traceable calibration standard that have never before been available in the industry.
