Key Features

  • Comprehensive testing for DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel, CPRI and Ethernet interfaces up to 10 Gbit/s
  • Faster Ethernet service activation with bidirectional and one-way-delay EtherSAM (ITU-T Y.1564) and RFC 2544 test suites, multiservice traffic generation, Through mode and bit-error-rate testing
  • True wire-speed, stateful TCP throughput based on RFC 6349 for undisputable SLA enforcement of Ethernet services
  • FTTA RRH validation using BBU/eNodeB emulation of the layer-2 CPRI protocol; covering interface rates from 1.2 Gbit/s to 9.8 Gbit/s, including unframed BER testing; testing can be done at the bottom of the basestation, or kilometers away (e.g., in a Cloud-RAN architecture)
  • Full line-rate packet capture and advanced filtering from 10M to 10G
  • Packet synchronization turn-up and troubleshooting (SyncE/1588 PTP)
  • Carrier Ethernet OAM testing covering the Y.1731, G.8113.1 (MPLS-TP), MEF and 802.1ag standards
  • OTN testing (as per ITU-T G.709) including forward error correction (FEC)
  • Simplified BER testing with pass/fail indicators based on user-defined thresholds
  • Efficiently assess Fibre Channel networks with best-in-class coverage via 1x, 2x, 4x, 8x and 10x interfaces
  • Complete ISDN solution for testing and troubleshooting DS1 or E1 primary rate interfaces (PRI)
  • Layer-2 transparency testing with predefined configurations
  • Integrated applications to test VoIP services, and additional IP test utilities, including VLAN scan and LAN discovery via EXpert VoIP and EXpert IP test tools


The Ultra-Portable Choice for Multiservice Testing

The ongoing transition toward a converged network infrastructure for legacy DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel, CPRI 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 NetBlazer streamlines processes and empowers field technicians to test and validate DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel, CPRI/OBSAI and Ethernet circuits efficiently.

Powerful and Fast

The NetBlazer Series is comprised of fully integrated DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel, CPRI and Ethernet handheld testers. It offers a 6-inch touchscreen with unprecedented configuration simplicity via hybrid touchscreen/keypad navigation. Platform connectivity is abundant via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet or USB ports, making the testers accessible in any environment.
