THE ULTRA-PORTABLE CHOICE FOR MULTISERVICE TESTING

The ongoing transition towards a converged network infrastructure for optical, 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 FTB-1 handheld platform, the FTB-700G Series streamlines processes and empowers field technicians to efficiently test and validate optical, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel, CPRI/OBSAI and Ethernet circuits.

 

OPTICAL

REMOVING THE COMPLEXITY FROM THE OTDR

Using a unique and patented automated multipulse and multi-wavelength acquisition approach, the field-proven iOLM surpasses the traditional OTDR and linear view for expert-level link characterization of any fiber network.

This dynamic OTDR-based application uses EXFO’s most advanced algorithms to deliver detailed information and maximum resolution on every element of the link. Thanks to its unmatched intelligence and simplicity, the iOLM converts complex OTDR tests into clear and accurate go/no-go results, through a single button operation.

 

MULTISERVICE

POWERFUL AND FAST

The FTB-700G Series is a fully integrated optical, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fiber Channel and Ethernet handheld tester. It offers the industry’s largest touchscreen and unprecedented configuration simplicity via a hybrid touchscreen/keypad navigation interface. Platform connectivity is abundant via 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet or USB ports, making it accessible in any environment.

Setting a New GUI Standard: Unprecedented Simplicity in Configuration Setup and Navigation

The FTB-700G Series intelligent situational-configuration setup feature guides technicians through complete, accurate testing processes (suggestion prompts, help guides, etc.). It reduces navigation by combining associated testing functions on a single screen, and offers intelligent autodiscovery that allows a single technician to perform end-to-end testing.
