COMUNICADO: ARGUS 240, intec introduces first pure fiber tester

Lüdenscheid, – 19 October

(Information sent by the signing company)

intec Gesellschaft für Informationstechnik mbH, the German innovation leader in the field of telecommunications measurement technology with more than 30 years of experience, introduces the new ARGUS 240 Optical xPON Tester, the first pure fiber tester.

The ARGUS 240 reliably tests at GPON and XGS-PON interfaces in the quality you have come to expect. An additional integrated broadband power meter enables the measurement of other wavelengths such as 1550 nm. With the selective xPON-OPM, the optical power of GPON and XGS-PON can be measured simultaneously. In addition, the PON ID can be read out and a complete ONT simulation with IP and performance tests can be done.

Furthermore, the ARGUS 240 has many other test functions, such as Wireless (WLAN), triple play tests such as VoIP, IPTV and data in the form of upload/download, iperf or speed tests up to 2.5 Gbit/s.

The SFP slot can be used, among other things, for the deployment of Active Ethernet, as is often the case in FTTH installations. In addition, the Fiber Inspection Tool can be connected via USB; it detects scratches and defects on optical fibers and displays them as a video image and in tabular form.
