FTB-500 8-slot platform

Distributed PMD analysis

Single-ended, span-by-span measurement of PMD, enabling targeted fiber upgrades and cost-effective deployment of 10, 40 and 100 Gbit/s transmission.

Full fiber characterization

PMD, CD and OTDR testing combined in a single solution, for in-depth fiber characterization. Run FastReporter post-processing software while performing your acquisitions, for faster data analysis and report generation—directly on-site.

100 Gbit/s testing applications

The most advanced hardware, ready for future 100 Gbit/s applications.

ROADM/POTS and 40 Gbit/s testing

Integrated optical and transport testing in a portable solution supporting OC-768, STM-256, OTU3 as well as true in-band OSNR for ROADMs, 40G transmission and UDWDM signals.

All-in-one transport and datacom configuration supporting:

  • DS0/E0 to OC-768/STM-256
  • OTU1/OTU2/OTU3/OTU1e/OTU2e with FEC
  • 10/100M, Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (LAN/WAN)
  • 1x/2x/4x/10x Fibre Channel
  • Next-generation SONET/SDH (GFP, LO/HO VCAT and LCAS)

FTB-500 4-slot platform

ROADM and PTN turn-up testing

Combines SONET/SDH, OTN, Ethernet and Fibre Channel analysis, as well as an optical spectrum analyzer with a built-in polarization controller.

CWDM turn-up testing

Integrates two metro/CWDM OTDRs and a high-power—up to 23 dBm—optical spectrum analyzer (with built-in polarization controller) into a single portable solution.

Multiservice testing

Simultaneously runs a 10 gigabit next-generation SONET/SDH analyzer, as well as 1 gigabit and 10 gigabit Ethernet analyzers, delivering IPTV test capabilities and TCP throughput assessment.

Gigabit/10 Gigabit Ethernet configurations
  • Gigabit Ethernet analyzer, OTDR and optical spectrum analyzer with polarization controller
  • Gigabit Ethernet analyzer, 10 Gigabit Ethernet analyzer and OTDR

A broader scope of tests. A broader range of modules. A breadth of fresh air.

The FTB-500 houses any of EXFO’s FTB plug-and-play modules, enabling you to reconfigure your test solution as your test needs evolve. Combine physical and optical characterization applications with transport and datacom test modules covering next-generation 10G, 40G and 100G analysis.

  • Optical test modules: choose from the industry’s most renowned line of OTDRs and most advanced dispersion analyzers
  • Transport and datacom test modules: discover the most compact and powerful SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel and Ethernet analyzers—the new standards in next-generation network testing
