Exfo has launched the next generation of its portable test platform, a device suitable for lab and field use.

The FTB-2 Pro supports up to two 1-slot modules simultaneously such as a combination of Ethernet and OTDR modules. It also supports spectral and multi-layer testing.

The platform has the necessary power for high speed, high performance testing, the company said.

Products supported on the new FTB-2 Pro platform include:

  • The FTB-88100NGE, supporting 10M-to-100G rates in a single module. It offers an integrated test solution covering OTN, Ethernet and SONET/SDH technologies as well as CFP and CFP2 transceiver coverage.
  • The FTB-5240S and FTB-5240S-P offering a Pol-Mux optical spectrum analyzer for coherent 40G/100G DWDM systems and intelligent in-band OSNR measurement for 40 Gbit/s and ROADM deployments.
  • FTB-8830NGE, a new 10G Multiservice test module delivering test suites for turn-up, circuit validation and troubleshooting of Ethernet, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel, and SyncE/1588 PTP services at up to 11.3 Gbit/s.
  • The FTB-7000 series of OTDRs, including the FTB-7200D, the FTB-7300E and FTB-7600E, which offer single mode and multimode configurations available at several wavelengths.

The FTB-2 Pro Compact Platform has a 10" high-resolution widescreen display and connectivity via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet and USB.

The test environment is based on the Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro operating system, enabling the tester to run many third-party applications.

Like all Exfo’s platforms, the FTB-2 Pro is compatible with Exfo Connect, a cloud-hosted solution which allows network operators to optimize field test workflow and perform automated asset management and test data management
