Description

To keep pace with bandwidth demands, network operators are supporting higher transmission rates and data centers are upgrading both the capacity and number of their facilities. The industry standards’ bodies are pushed to develop more and faster Ethernet speeds, such as 400GE, to support trends like IoT, cloud, big data, and 5G.

Network infrastructure planners must deal with skyrocketing demands for more bandwidth, including in the data center interconnect (DCI) or even in core and metro networks. Network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) continue to push the limits of technology, developing increasingly innovative 400G solutions. Service providers are constantly expanding their networks, looking for more efficient and cost-effective ways to deploy those high-speed circuits.

Preparing the 400G ecosystem for prime time

Enter the FTBx-88400NGE Power Blazer module. It offers a complete suite of 400G testing capabilities that can transition smoothly from lab to field. In addition, when portability is needed, the FTBx-88400NGE can be inserted into the FTB-4 Pro for the most compact 400G solution on the market.

Compatible with portable and rackmount platforms

These Power Blazer modules deliver an optimized and portable testing solution. Insert modules into the FTB-4 Pro for the most compact 400G solution on the market—easy to transport both within and outside the lab environment.

For rackmount applications, 400G Power Blazer Series solutions are compatible with EXFO’s LTB-8 Rackmount Platform. Featuring the ability to support up to two modules running simultaneously, they are the industry’s only solutions that can test up to 800G—ideal for testing today’s complex and bandwidth-hungry networks.

400G Ethernet

The FTBx-88400NGE offers advanced Ethernet testing capabilities, including forward error correction monitoring and validation. The FTBx’s 400G Ethernet testing capabilities include:

  • 400G Ethernet MAC PCS/PMA/PMD layer testing
  • FEC KP4 RS(544, 514) decoding and error correction
  • Alarms/errors generating and monitoring
  • Skew measurement per lane
  • FEC testing
  • BER monitoring

FlexE (FLEX ETHERNET)

The Flex Ethernet (FlexE) function supports one or more bonded 100GBASE-R PHYs supporting multiple Ethernet MAC operating at a rate of 10, 40, or n x 25 Gbit/s. Flex Ethernet is a key data center technology that helps data centers deliver links that are faster than emerging 400G solutions.

FlexE testing capabilities include:

  • FlexE groups
  • Mixed Ethernet client types
  • Client ID edition
  • FlexE alarms/errors generation and monitoring

Advanced optics support

The following transceivers are supported on the FTBx-88400NGE:

  • SFP28
  • SFP56
  • QSFP28
  • CFP8
