  • Pluggable CFP4 and QSFP28 optics to facilitate the testing of next-generation networks, and QSFP+ interface for 40GigE
  • Dual-port or Quad-port testing up to 10G WAN and LAN, allows technicians to run up to four simultaneous tests
  • FTTA/C-RAN validation from 1.2 Gbit/s to 9.8 Gbit/s via layer-2 CPRI protocol and unframed BER testing
  • Real-time, high-resolution radio frequency (RF) spectrum analysis using digitized RF data (IQ data) in the CPRI link
  • Carrier Ethernet OAM testing covering the Y.1731, G.8113.1 (MPLS-TP), MEF and 802.1ag and IEEE 802.3ah Link OAM standards
  • Ethernet service activation with EtherSAM (ITU-T Y.1564) service configuration and performance tests, complemented by Remote Discovery, Smart Loopback and Dual Test Set capabilities
  • Ultra-powerful processing backed by quad-core FTB platform with Windows 8.1 Professional operating system, providing access to many third-party apps and the ability to connect to a wide range of devices

The Ultra-Portable Choice for Multiservice Testing of Speeds Up to 100G

The ongoing transition toward a converged network infrastructure for legacy DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel, requires a test tool that can cover a wide range of interfaces and rates, without sacrificing portability, speed or cost. Leveraging the powerful, intelligent FTB-1 Pro handheld platform, the NetBlazer V2 Series streamlines processes and empowers field technicians to test and validate DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel, common public radio interface (CPRI) and packet-based high-speed Ethernet services efficiently.

iSAM: Ultra-Simple Ethernet Service Activation Test Methodology—Put Time Back on Your Side

iSAM, EXFO’s intelligent Ethernet service activation methodology brings simplicity to field testing. Based on the ITU-T Y.1564 and RFC 6349 standards, iSAM streamlines Ethernet testing with a one-page test configuration.

Speed Up Ethernet Testing

With iSAM, the focus is on performing Ethernet testing faster and simpler, making the Y.1564 and RFC 6349 standards as easy as possible for technicians at any skill level to use. A key component lending to iSAM’s simplicity is the reduced number of steps it actually takes to setup, run and receive a valid test result, thus delivering first-time-right results–every time.

In addition to the simplicity it brings to the world of Ethernet testing, iSAM also includes the latest cutting-edge Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) profiles. Using predefined performance metric profiles from MEF 23.1, field technicians can quickly select the MEF service type they need to test, and validate Ethernet services in a consistent and repeatable manner.

Accelerate Time to Revenue

iSAM was designed to help service providers and their technicians seamlessly transition from legacy testing methodologies to a simpler and more powerful Ethernet test methodology. By combining iSAM’s easy and cutting-edge capabilities with EXFO’s flexible licensing options, service providers now have access to an Ethernet testing solution that will maximize testing efficiencies and greatly improve time to revenue.
