Can you operate an OSA 500R in a Viavi V1 MTS/TB8000?
A 500R can be used in a Version 1 MTS/TB8000 but it will not have all the functionality it would have in a Version 2. The Version 1 cannot be upgraded to current Fiber Optics software so some software functions, like OO OSNR, will not be possible in a version 1 8000.
