An introduction to one of EXFO's latest innovations to its FTB-5240S/B-P, WDM-Aware. WDM-Aware offers the i-in-band mode—intelligent setups, optimized on a per-channel basis, which delivers accurate test results all automatically, all the time. WDM-Aware removes the uncertainty about test results, removes the guesswork, automates and speeds up tests, and thereby reduces OPEX.
