The MTS-8000 is a field-scalable optical test platform for both installation and maintenance. Based on the rich MTS heritage, the MTS-8000 is the industry's most innovative and cost-effective test solution for metro networks. A single Transport Module provides an integrated solution for Ethernet, SONET, SDH, PDH, and T-carrier networks. Optical Modules allow thorough testing of short-haul, long-haul, FTTx, CWDM, DWDM and ROADM networks.


  • Practically unlimited field modularity means that you can match any requirement for test function, size, weight, or price.
  • Compact design starting at 7.6 lb (3.4 kg) exceeds Telcordia requirements for durability and transport.
  • Multiple test functions are available directly on the base unit to improve productivity and free application module space.
  • Connector check functions with power meter, VFL, and video microscope options are available.
  • Existing MTS-5000 optical modules are compatible with the MTS-8000.


  • Configure with numerous application modules and a variety of storage media, including USB memory stick, and read/write CD-ROM.
  • All application modules are field-installable so that existing MTS-5000 users can simply field install the optical plug-in by adding an extender.
  • A Large color transreflective display is offered as standard for improved visibility for use in direct sunlight. A touchscreen option is available.
  • Extended battery life with up to 2 Lithium ion cells.
  • Base unit can house Visual Fault Locator (635 nm), Power Meter (800 to 1650 nm),Loss Test Set/ORL meter, as well as Optical Talkset (45 dB) options
  • Optical Talkset allows both communication and file transfer.
  • Comprehensive suite of PC software tools for post-processing of test results via FiberTrace (OFS-100) and FiberCable (OFS-200).
