10G Ethernet Tester: The Ultra-Portable Choice for Multiservice Testing

The ongoing transition towards a converged network infrastructure for legacy DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel and packet-based Ethernet services 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 handheld platform, the FTB-880 NetBlazer streamlines processes and empowers field technicians to test and validate DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel and Ethernet circuits efficiently.

Powerful and Fast

The FTB-880 NetBlazer is a fully integrated DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel and Ethernet handheld tester. It offers the industry's largest touchscreen with unprecedented configuration simplicity via hybrid touchscreen/keypad navigation. Platform connectivity is abundant via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet or USB ports, making it accessible in any environment.

What You Need for Any DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel or Ethernet Application
  • Installation, commissioning and maintenance of access and metro networks
  • Turn-up of DSn/PDH, ISDN or SONET/SDH circuits
  • Performance assessment of Carrier Ethernet services
