FTB 5GPro - Complete, all-in-one 4G and 5G test solution

Designed to streamline field operations when deploying 4G/LTE and 5G wireless networks.

The smarter way to test

Building a rock-solid network that’s massively scalable and able to support new 5G services demanded by customers can be challenging—unless you have the right tools and procedures in place. EXFO’s FTB 5GPro test kit empowers technicians and contractors to efficiently validate next-gen fiber-based mobile networks and ensures your 5G deployment is done right.

Key features

Fiber connector inspection to detect dirty or damaged connectors (at each connection point)
iOLM for fiber link characterization to detect issues on the fiber span potentially impacting total budget loss (dB), such as macrobends, splices, bad connectors and fiber breaks
Fully automated RF spectrum analysis over CPRI (iORF) to identify issues like RF interference and PIM
RF spectrum analysis with FR1 (sub-6 GHz) and FR2 (mmWave), includes TDD gated sweep and 5G SSB
Timing and synchronization validation over fiber (1588-PTP, SyncE and Wander/TE) and over the air
eCPRI 10G and 25G link validation using BER and QoS metrics like latency testing
CPRI link validation from 1.2 Gbit/s to 10.1 Gbit/s using BER and latency testing
Up to 100G Ethernet testing with iSAM—intelligent service activation methodology—based on ITU-T Y.1564 and RFC 6349 standards
iOptics test application to efficiently evaluate the proper operation of transceiver interfaces from 1G to 100G

Applications

FTTx network testing
RF over-the-air (OTA) testing
5G transport network validation (fronthaul, midhaul, backhaul)
RAN testing & troubleshooting (small cells, C-RAN, DAS)
CWDM/DWDM network validation
Ethernet/IP network testing and troubleshooting up to 100G
Fixed wireless access testing & troubleshooting

Where power meets simplicity

Leveraging the powerful and intelligent FTB-1 Pro handheld test platform, the FTB 5GPro is a comprehensive and future-proof solution that takes the guesswork out of test setup, execution and analysis.

The FTB 5GPro is designed to boost field-testing efficiency and deliver high-quality 5G and 4G/LTE networks, on time:

  • Follows standardized, field-proven test procedures
  • Enables technicians at any skill level to instantly interpret results and accelerate outcomes
  • Addresses any potential issues when installing, activating and maintaining mobile networks

FTB 5GPro test kit—helping you get 5G networks up and running fast

A versatile solution empowering field technicians and contractors to efficiently test fiber, RF and the transport network—from the core to the tower and all the way to your subscribers.

  • Fiber connector inspection
  • Fiber link characterization
  • Multi-protocol testing (CPRI, eCPRI/ORAN and Ethernet up to 100G)
  • Timing and synchronization over fiber and over the air
  • RF spectrum analysis (sub-6 GHz and mmWave)
  • Intelligent RF spectrum analysis over CPRI
  • Optical transceiver validation

Go beyond OTDR testing―and leave no faulty links behind

Using a unique and patented automated multipulse and multiwavelength acquisition approach, the field-proven iOLM surpasses the traditional OTDR and linear view, providing expert-level link characterization of any fiber network. iOLM converts complex OTDR tests into clear, accurate go/no-go results through a single-button operation.

Analyzing RF spectrum over CPRI doesn't have to be rocket science.

The intelligent OpticalRF (iORF) test application allows technicians to configure, analyze and diagnose RF interference and PIM issues in minutes―without needing to be an RF expert.  The one-button, fully automated test application provides complete analysis of the RF spectrum with a pass or fail verdict.

Solve RF issues faster than ever!

Ready to adapt as your network transforms, our flexible, modular platform lets field techs analyze FR1 (sub-6 GHz) and FR2 (mmWave) bands with a single solution for extreme flexibility and upgradeability. Designed and built specifically for today's field techs, the 5GPro Spectrum Analyzer with over-the-air (OTA) measurements delivers an easy-to-perform and easy-to-interpret experience.
