780/1310/1383/1490/1550/1625/1650 nm OTDR for SMF
Optical fibers are a key technology in today’s modern communications systems, including access networks such as FTTx,
CATV, and optical LANs. Moreover, optical-fiber technologies are playing increasingly important roles in mobile communications and digital broadcasting systems. Technicians maintaining these diverse systems are forced to carry a large variety
of test equipment on-site, including OTDRs, Light Sources, Optical Power Meters, Visible Light Sources, etc., as well as a
notebook computer for evaluating the FTTx QoS. On the other hand, fiber construction requires measuring instruments with
different functions and performance. As an example, FTTx access networks use single mode (SM) fiber whereas optical
LANs use multimode (MM) fiber. In addition, core and backbone networks utilize long fibers while optical access networks
use short fibers, both requiring different types of measuring instruments with different performance. But now Anritsu’s new
line of MT9083A ACCESS Master OTDRs solves all these problems by providing all the measurement functions and performance required for optical fiber construction and maintenance in a compact, lightweight, all-in-one unit that eliminates the
burden of carrying many different test sets and instruments on-site. Whatever your work, construction or maintenance, long
haul or intra-building, Anritsu has an MT9083A model for your needs.

Exceptional OTDR Performance…
from the World’s First OTDR Manufacturer
Evaluation of access networks ranging from a few kilometers to metro networks reaching up to 100 km in length is
becoming commonplace, requiring OTDRs to have the performance and functions for evaluating both short and long fibers. Designed with this in mind, the ACCESS Master delivers on both fronts.
Improved Short Fiber Analysis
Extended Range Testing of 100+ km Fibers
An event dead zone of less than 1m (80 cm typical) and a
sampling resolution of 5 centimeters allow the MT9083A to
evaluate connections and troubleshoot central office, FTTx
and intra-building faults with ease – providing a level of
detail never before seen.
In addition to its superb high-resolution performance, the
MT9083A also features up to 38.5dB of dynamic range
allowing it to easily test 100+ km spans making it a very
useful tool for any network type.
Fig 2: S
pans of over 100 km are also easily tested making the MT9083A the
only tool you will need - for any network type.
Fig. 1: W
ith its high resolution optics, the MT9083A provides exceptional
detail allowing users to quickly determine where the problem is-even
when events are closely spaced.
Convenient Features
Active fiber check
indoors, and the Enhanced type (MT9083A1), offering easy
viewing for working both indoors and outdoors
Not only can OTDR measurements be effected when the
optical fiber is in-service but there is a potential risk of
damage to the transmitter and OTDR receiver. To prevent
these problems, the MT9083A verifies if light is present
before starting measurement and will not transmit if it is. An
on-screen warning and internal OTDR protection are also
part of this useful feature.
Event Table with User Defined Thresholds
PASS/FAIL thresholds for key acceptance criteria such as
splice loss, connector loss and reflectance can be set in
the MT9083A allowing technicians to easily assess a fiber’s
condition. Failing values are clearly highlighted in the event
table alerting technicians of potential problems.
Waveform Comparison Function
Multiple Wavelengths and Models
Compare current and stored trace data to easily assess
changes over time and to locate problems before they effect
service or compare traces at different wavelengths to identify installation issues such as macrobending.
With nine available wavelengths spanning both single mode
and multimode, the ACCESS Master MT9083A is sure to
meet your individual needs. Up to four of these wavelengths can be combined into a single optical output providing full spectrum characterization.
Integrated Macrobend Detection
Wavelengths for Today’s Networks
With many technicians making the switch from copper
installations to optical fiber, installation issues such as macrobends are bound to occur. To help prevent this, Anritsu
has developed a macrobend detection feature for the
MT9083A that will alert technicians when a possible macrobend is present. This provides a higher quality of service
for the customer and eliminates costly troubleshooting for
Sometimes you just need more than the traditional 1310
and 1550 nm wavelengths to certify your next generation networks. The MT9083A offers a host of specialized
wavelengths including1383 nm for water peak verification
of CWDM carrying fibers, 1650 nm (with integrated filter) for
live fiber troubleshooting, 1490 nm for verification of voice,
data and IP based video services and 780 nm for in-service
troubleshooting of FTTx networks - without the need for any
additional filters.

FAULT LOCATE mode is designed for the novice or someone who only uses an OTDR occasionally. Simply connect
the fiber and press START. The unit will verify the fiber is
connected correctly, select testing parameters and provide
a text response indicating fault/break location - easy to read
results for any skill level.
General OTDR Testing
For those who have more experience or would like to perform more advanced testing, STANDARD OTDR mode
allows the user to set all parameters and compare traces
manually, automatically or somewhere in between.
Optical Fiber Construction and Certification
When final cable acceptance is the task at hand,
CONSTRUCTION mode greatly simplifies operation through
its innovative wizard. Select the required testing wavelengths, number of fibers and file naming scheme and
construction mode acts as the project manager guiding the
user through the testing, while ensuring consistency with
testing parameters and filenames - virtually eliminating user
induced errors and missing files.
Whatever your construction or maintenance needs, the new
ACCESS Master MT9083A is designed to reduce the time
to install, commission and maintain your optical networks –

supporting tasks ranging from searching for faults in optical fibers to QoS evaluation to FTTx troubleshooting with just one
Complete Loss Test Set Features
Standard Stabilized Light Source
Optical Power Meter Options - up to +30 dBm
The OTDR port also functions as a stabilized light source
providing continuous wave, 270Hz, 1kHz and 2kHz modulations for easy fiber identification. This is standard equipment on all models - a chargeable option on most other
In place of the standard power meter, the MT9083A offers
four optional optical power meters; one supports both SM
and MM fibers (MT9083A-003,006) while the others feature
higher measurement range for SM only applications (-004,
-005). When measurement of high optical powers, typically
more than +20 dBm (like those used by CATV companies)
is required, power meter (Option 005) using an optical
integrator sphere can be used to make long-term measurements with high stability at levels above +30 dBm.
Standard Integrated Power Meter
In the base unit, the OTDR port also functions as an integrated power meter for verification of optical power levels.
Additional power meter options are available for higher
power transmissions and loop-back testing.
Data Table for Saved Results
Loss test set measurements for multiple wavelengths can
be saved into a results table for easy comparison and
archiving. The table can also be saved as a text file and
exported to a PC spreadsheet program for further manipulation or integration into a standard company template.
Visual Laser Source for easy fault location and
fiber identification
A Visible Light Source is useful for tracking down bad connections, splices and fiber management issues such as
macrobends. The optional Visible Light Source is factory
installed in the MT9083A and features up to 5 km (3 miles)
of operation.
Optical Access Network QoS Evaluation Using IP Testing (Planned)
(to be released in 2007)
Faults that cause drops in FTTx service speed are handled differently according to whether the cause is outside or inside
the building. In addition, business users are starting to think about guaranteed bandwidth services and higher-speed gigabit
services. The MT9083A has a built-in IP Network Connection Check function that can be used for both optical fibers and
optical access QoS evaluation.
Throughput Measurement and Frame Counter
Connection and Ping Tests
The MT9083A has a two-way throughput measurement
function for efficient evaluation of guaranteed bandwidth
services. When an MT9083A is connected to each end of
the service, both the upload and download speeds can be
evaluated. And since the built-in frame counter functions
can be used to measure received frame types and to count
error frames, network usage efficiency can be measured
easily too.
The first step in testing a service is to verify continuity. The
built-in IP Connection Test Function supports both PPPOE
and DHCP services.
FTTx Download Speed Evaluation
FTTx service performance is easily evaluated from the
download throughput. Previous evaluation systems were
always limited by the PC performance (CPU speed, memory
size, OS, load) and never provided accurate measurements.
Using the MT9083A Download Throughput Measurement
function frees the results from the impact of PC performance and provides accurate results. This allows the causes
of drops in FTTx service speeds to be pinpointed to the network side or the user’s PC side.
Gigabit Ethernet Support
The MT9083A has an optional built-in 1000Base-T electrical
interface for evaluating Gigabit Ethernet throughput (up to
full line rate) for verifying performance on increasing common Gigabit Ethernet service
