The ultra-portable choice for multiservice testing

Optical testing

Removing complexity from the OTDR

Using a unique and patented automated multipulse and multiwavelength acquisition approach, the field-proven iOLM surpasses the traditional OTDR and linear view, providing expert-level link characterization of any fiber network with unmatched intelligence and simplicity.

Multiservice testing

Powerful yet simple

The FTB-700G V2 Series is a fully integrated DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel, CPRI and Ethernet services handheld tester with an 8-inch multitouch screen delivering unprecedented configuration simplicity. The FTB-700G V2 requires minimal to no training for new users thanks to its highly intuitive graphical user interface (GUI), streamlined procedures and predefined configurations.

BBU emulation

Speeds up cell-site commissioning

EXFO’s BBU emulation test application allows mobile cell technicians and contractors to ensure that cell sites are installed correctly the first time. Designed for simple one-click operation and with clear pass/fail results, the application makes it possible to isolate problems quickly, generate a complete test report, and create a birth certificate for the cell site.

Radio frequency (RF) spectrum analysis over CPRI

Unmatched on the market

With EXFO’s OpticalRF™ application, dangerous and difficult climbs can be eliminated by providing access to RF signals through the digital CPRI link available at the BBU site. By accessing the IQ data at the BBU location, costs associated with truck rolls and tower climbs are reduced.
