nritsu's MT1100A Network
Master Flex is a portable
transport tester for optical networks
which can measure client signals
at data rates up to 100Gb/s and
which is suitable for testing the
next generation of 400Gb/s network
equipment. Anritsu has also
introduced a number of upgrades
to the MT1000A, including support
for high-speed Fibre Channel and
enhanced Ethernet testing.
Jonathan Borrill, Director of
Marketing at Anritsu (EMEA), says,
"The new MT1100A is the world's first
true field portable transport network
tester to be able to generate the
Ethernet and SDH/SONET client
signals needed for testing the traffic
carried on OTN circuits at speeds
up to 100Gb/s. As a result, OTN
evaluations can be performed in
a near-to-live test environment to
easily troubleshoot and test the
causes of communications error on
OTN, Ethernet, SDH/SONET and
Fibre Channel networks."

DK-Technologies has added
loudness automation to its T7

Denmark's DK-Technologies has
once again upped the functionality
of their competitive DK T7 audio,
loudness and logging meter, by
adding Loudness Automation.
Based on SMPTE timecode, DK
T7 is now capable of instantly
recalculating the Integrated
Loudness value up to four hours
back in time. This means no more
reruns to hit your loudness target
value - Loudness Automation is a
free of charge update for existing
and future users.
The recent update also adds
USB mouse operation to the Multi
touch screen DK T7, allowing for
fast and easy on screen access or
operation using the HDMI external
monitor output. Extra tweaks have

been added, including headphone
volume control and more screen
setup functions.
Uffe Kjems, Product Marketing
Director for DK-Technologies,
says: "Every Engineer working with
loudness knows about the tedious
process of hitting the Loudness
measure bulls eye, and I know that
they will appreciate the Loudness
Automation feature as a real time
saver. This adds yet another cool
and practical feature to the DK T7
at no additional cost and simply
makes DK T7 the strongest and
most competitive Loudness meters
around, let alone affordable."
IneoQuest Technologies' AMP
for Adaptive Streaming solution
provides video service providers
(VSPs) with deep viewership
analytics in order to increase
monetisation of their services
and enhance viewer experience.
In September, AMP for Adaptive
Streaming was honoured by the
2014 Diamond Technology Review
Programme with one judge stating,
"[AMP for Adaptive Streaming] is a
first of its kind that finally allows
operators the needed visibility into
the quality and geolocations of OTT
content consumption."
Joel Daly, Senior Director, Product
Management and Marketing
at IneoQuest, says: "As the
volume of video consumed on
connected devices continues to
increase, providers must have a
strategy in place to successfully
manage multiscreen deployments.
IneoQuest's solutions help with this
preparation by allowing providers
to assure video quality, understand
subscribers, optimise content and
delivery and grow returns."
New to the European market from
Lynx Technik is the Testor | Lite 3G,
a cost- effective, compact, hand

held touch-screen multi-format
test signal generator. Designed to
address the demands of testing
multi-format digital infrastructures,
the new Testor | Lite 3G is offered at
a low cost and boasts "a multitude
of useful features," making it a
suitable accompaniment for a field
engineer's portable toolkit.
