PPM1 - Service activation PON power meter

Versatile dual-layer tester purpose-built for PON service activation, with added broadband capabilities

PON-aware technology

The PPM1 leverages a unique patented technology that makes all the difference in the field. The PPM1 automatically detects the PON technology in use and self-adjusts the pass/fail criteria, enabling rapid and error-free testing.

Next-gen PON service activation

A single power meter for 1G and 10G—No training required.

Next-generation passive optical networks (PONs) will, in most cases, leverage existing outdoor plant infrastructure. Adding new services on existing networks translates into overlaying multiple wavelengths on the same physical fiber plant. The PPM1 is compatible with multiple services including GPON, EPON, XGS-PON and 10G-EPON technologies. Its wavelength-selective design allows it to measure up to two downstream signals simultaneously, assessing power level for rapid and reliable service activation.

Purpose-built for service activation

Unique PON-aware™ capability: automatically detects PON technology in use
Supports 1G/10G PON networks: G/E-PON and XGS-PON/10G-EPON
No training required: highly intuitive interface and color touchscreen
Robust and rugged: IP54 design for dust and water protection
3-year warranty and calibration interval
Long-lasting LiPo battery (rechargeable and field-replaceable)
Broadband Power Meter mode and VFL port (PRO model)
