A Sum Greater than Its Parts

Nowadays, with the complexity and extent of modern networks, technicians need more than a few tools in their belt to get the job done right the first time. They need OSAs, Ethernet multiservice modules and OTDRs with fiber inspection probes. You name it, the technician needs it. But what makes the supertech “super” is the ability to drill down effortlessly and perform all tests quickly and accurately, cutting costs and saving time. That’s the added value, and that’s one of the many advantages that the FTB-2 brings to the table.

All in the Family

Back in 1996, EXFO shook the world with the first PC-based multimodule test platform, the FTB-300. Today, over 15 years later, it still innovates by bringing you the most recent member of the FTB family, the FTB-2. This latest incarnation of the ground-breaking platform brings you all the most recent technologies.
