Powerful Next-Generation Testing

EXFO’s IQS-88100NGE (10M to 100G) and IQS-88100G (40G/100G) Power Blazer test modules are specifically designed to address high-speed testing needs, but also meet all of today’s multiservice testing challenges. In addition, they offer the scalability needed to address future testing requirements.

The IQS-88100NGE Power Blazer

This Power Blazer module supports all rates up to 100G, in addition to a wide array of technologies, such as legacy TDM and new packet-based services. Covering 10M-to-100G Ethernet, OTU1 to OTU4 (including standard and overclocked rates) and OC 3/STM-1 to OC-768/STM-256 in one small, powerful module, this innovative EXFO solution has set a new testing standard.

The IQS-88100G

Designed to address 40G/100G dedicated testing needs, including OC-768/STM-256, 40G/100G Ethernet, and OTU3-/OTU4-based networks, this module is housed in EXFO’s IQS-600 platforms. Eliminating the need for multiple test boxes, the IQS-88100NGE delivers multiservice testing up to 100G in a single, advanced solution designed for lab and production-floor environments. When needed, the IQS-88100G module can also be combined with EXFO’s 10G multiservice module for simultaneous multiport testing.

A Game-Changer for High-Speed Deployment

The IQS-88100NGE and IQS-88100G Power Blazer modules are equipped with new OPEX and CAPEX saving technologies. And, EXFO’s flexible platform architecture can be leveraged anywhere and anytime for any testing capability from 10M to 100G, and a simple point and click are all that’s needed to enable software options. This flexibility guarantees a cost-effective, future-proof offering and immediate access to testing capabilities. It also guarantees faster service provisioning, eliminating the shipping costs associated with having to return outdated equipment.

400G Test Solution

Due to the demands of high-speed triple-play services, data centers and higher- bandwidth residential broadband connections, carriers are now facing ever-increasing needs for bandwidth and capacity in their networks. In an effort to meet this growing need for speed, system manufacturers are focusing their efforts on developing 400G, which is a vital stepping stone to reaching the ultimate 1 Tbit/s objective.

EXFO’s innovative new TKS-610-88100G-400G test solution supports four IQS-88100G Power Blazer modules in the IQS-610P platform—offering the flexibility needed to configure the four 100 Gbit/s client interfaces simultaneously with full traffic profiling, shaping and monitoring capabilities. This setup enables NEMs and early adopters of 400 Gbit/s technology to simulate real-life services at 400 Gbit/s link capacity and monitor key quality of service (QoS) metrics for validation of systems manufacturers’ implementations. It also offers centralized test configurations and result views, not to mention powerful automation capabilities enabling NEMs to repeat test routines throughout the development cycle. This translates into increased time savings and higher quality.
