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.

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


  • 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.
  • Portable: Compact, modular and lightweight- no generated required.
  • Rack-able form factor pairs with Viavi Fiber Monitoring Solution (ONMSi)

Key Features:

  • OTDR solution (Brillouin OTDR).
  • Temperature & strain threshold monitoring.
  • Decorrelation of temperature & strain.
  • Multi-port measurements.
  • Low power consumption – rack-able version.
  • Battery operated – portable version.
  • Remote connectivity.


  • Pipeline Monitoring.
  • Telecommunications cable strain testing for manufacturing, installation and maintenance.
  • Power cable monitoring.
  • Structural Health Monitoring (SHM).
