JDSU Introduces MAP-200 for the Most Demanding Lab and Manufacturing Test Environments


Milpitas, Calif.– JDSU today announced the latest generation of its Multiple Application Platform (MAP) optical test and measurement platform, the MAP-200, that is optimized for the cost-effective development and manufacturing of optical transmission network elements. The MAP-200 offers a very broad portfolio of fiber optic power measurement and signal management tools using an updated, dense and highly configurable platform.

The MAP-200 represents an investment in productivity-enhancing technologies and tools for the most stringent test applications found in lab and manufacturing environments. With its industry-leading features, the MAP-200 speeds network system development and provides unmatched visibility into the performance of network elements.

“Today’s rapidly-changing optical market requires investment in productivity-enhancing technologies and tools like the MAP-200,” said Enzo di Luigi, general manager in JDSU’s Communications Test and Measurement business segment. “Thanks to its multi-function capabilities and ease-of-use, the MAP-200 enables a quick return on capital investment and simplifies testing – which reduces operational expenses.”

Key ease-of-use features include the industry’s first compliance with LAN eXtensions for Instruments (LXI) standards, user-friendly controls and an intuitive, multi-language GUI. The MAP-200 also lowers operation and capital expenses via Interchangeable Virtual Instrument (IVI) drivers that are optimized for ease-of-use with most popular application development environments and provide reusable driver architecture. The drivers provide full control of MAP-200 modules and are based on common architecture to reduce the engineering time needed when working with multiple vendors.

The MAP-200 mainframe is offered in three configurations for optimal adaptability
within test sets: a three-slot configuration and a 19-inch rack, eight-slot configuration with either front- or rear-facing orientation for optimal fiber routing. Investment protection is maximized by use of a simple transition kit, which allows insertion of previously field-deployed MAP modules in the MAP-200 mainframe. Furthermore, the MAP-200 provides additional cost savings by letting users share modules within a mainframe.

There are 16 MAP-200 modules including power meters, amplifiers, attenuators, tunable filters, switches, and sources that offer industry-leading performance features.
