Description

All-in-one OSA covering all spectral testing applications

The new FTBx-5255 is the only OSA on the market to address all applications in a single module:

  • High-speed DWDM, with OSNR measurements from 10G to 400G, including In-service Pol-Mux OSNR
  • CWDM spectral analysis
  • Spectral analysis of pluggable transceivers (CFP, XFP, etc.) on the O-band, 1300 nm region, as well as L-band transceivers

New in-service Pol-Mux OSNR

With the advent of EXFO’s In-service Pol-Mux OSNR method (INSPM), the wait for a non-intrusive Pol-Mux OSNR method that works on live networks is now over! This robust method features a high dynamic range and provides very accurate Pol-Mux OSNR values for 40G/100G/200G/400G* signals. It is the preferred method for reducing coherent network outages, pinpointing defective amplifiers and decreasing troubleshooting time.

Analyze any WDM network

Regardless your network specificities and testing requirements, the FTBx-5245/5255 covers your DWDM applications and all channel spacings—from 25 GHz DWDM to CWDM—which is what we like to refer to as “no-compromise performance”.

Powerful platforms, powerful combos

Housed in the compact and portable FTB-2, FTB-2 Pro and FTB-4 Pro platforms, or in the rack-mountable LTB-8 platform, the FTBx-5245/5255 OSA test modules provide all the tools needed for maximum field efficiency from the market’s most compact high-speed deployment and multiservice testing solutions. When equipped with the commissioning assistant option or the In-service Pol-Mux option, this versatile OSA can be combined with the FTBx-88200NGE Power Blazer module to become the industry’s smallest OSA/transport solution in a single platform for commissioning 40G/400G circuits.
