Short Dead Zones

EXFO’s FTB-720 OTDR helps you boost test productivity for inside-plant applications. Its exceptional 0.8 m event dead zone enables you to easily locate and characterize all events between the transmitter and the central office’s fiber distribution panel. This feature also comes in handy in access and LAN/WAN network applications, where events are usually closely spaced.

Multimode and Singlemode Flexibility

The FTB-720 model combines singlemode and multimode functionalities, ideal for private/premises/enterprise network testing. It offers the industry’s shortest dead zones, as well as lightning-fast acquisitions. Test multimode fiber within premises or singlemode fiber between premises—all with a single OTDR unit—and maximize your return on investment.

Filtered Port for Live Fiber Testing (Singlemode only)

The singlemode model now features a filtered 1625 nm port for in-service troubleshooting of live networks, such as P2P, FTTx and PON. The singlemode model is a versatile day-to-day tester for any access networks.

OTDRs are often used with a launch fiber/cable, and may also use a receive fiber/cable. The launch cable, aka “pulse suppressor” or “dummy fiber,” allows the OTDR to recover after the test pulse is sent into the fiber. This cable provides an invaluable reference on the first connector of the cable under test for determining its loss and reflectance.
