DTSS B-OTDR for T-BERD/MTS-8000 Platform

Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing of Strain, Temperature and Optical Loss

The portable DTSS on the T-BERD/MTS-8000 platform brings new DTSS technology to the field in a uniquely portable and high powered combination. This product can also be provided in a rack-mounted optical test unit within an OTU-8000 to be combined with ONMSi for a permanent fiber monitoring solution.


  • Fiber characterization with B-OTDR reveals fiber strain and elongation or temperature.
  • Ensure installations are done correctly without strain.
  • Reduce and reverse cable strain by locating and releasing it before it breaks the cable or reduces the cable life using the portable DTSS.

Key Benefits

  • Simultaneous temperature and strain measurement 
  • Single-ended solution requiring only one fiber
  • Portable and rack mounted form factors
