For cable operators, Remote PHY is the next major network architecture change. This new technology brings fiber much deeper into the network—and much closer to the end user. Remote PHY also triggers the evolution from analog optics to digital optics, featuring Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) for increased capacity.
The FOT-5205 meets the testing needs of Remote PHY deployments in terms of spectral range, power range and channel spacing. It is the ideal tool for successful network commissioning and effective troubleshooting.
EXFO understands that field technicians want to get the job done the first time—and quickly. The FOT-5205 boasts a measurement time of less than 0.5 seconds, one of the fastest in the industry.
Unlike some competing products, EXFO’s FOT-5205 is sensitive enough to detect low power signals, down to -50 dBm. This feature is especially important when measuring through monitor ports because these reduce the signal power by approximately 20 dB.
