The 2500 Fiber Analysis System is able to characterize several of the most important transmission properties of both single-mode and multimode fibers. This versatility is one reason why the 2500 is a popular solution for many fiber manufacturers.

The 2500 is also the industry-standard test system for characterizing the most critical properties of the current generation of laser-optimized multimode fibers. The 2500 is able to measure both the overfilled-launch bandwidth and the single-mode launch differential mode delay (SMLDMD) of these fibers, as well as their spectral attenuation with standards-compliant launch conditions. High performance options and customized measurement wavelengths allow customers to tailor the system's capability to their specific requirements.
