Ethernet / Transmission

Dsn / PDH Testing


The ongoing transition towards a converged network infrastructure for legacy DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel and packet-based Ethernet services requires a test tool that can cover a wide range of interfaces and rates, without sacrificing portability, speed or cost.

Leveraging the powerful, intelligent FTB-1 handheld platform, the FTB-880 NetBlazer streamlines processes and empowers field technicians to test and validate DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel and Ethernet circuits efficiently.

Key Features

•       Comprehensive testing for DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN and Ethernet

         interfaces up to 10 Gbit/s

•       Efficiently assess Fibre Channel networks with best-in-class coverage via 1x, 2x,

         4x, 8x and 10x interfaces

•       FTTA validation (CPRI and OBSAI) at up to 3.1 Gbit/s via BER testing

•       Complete ISDN solution for testing and troubleshooting DS1 or E1 primary rate

         interfaces (PRI)

•       Simplified BER testing with pass/fail indicators based on user-defined thresholds

•       OTN testing (as per ITU-T G.709) including forward error correction (FEC)

•       Faster Ethernet service activation with bidirectional EtherSAM (ITU-T Y.1564)              and RFC 2544 test suites, multistream traffic generation, Through mode and bit-          error-rate (BER) testing

•       Unprecedented configuration simplicity with hybrid touchscreen/keypad                      navigation and data entry

•       Increase technician autonomy and productivity with intelligent discovery of                 remote

        EXFO Ethernet testers, as well as in-service Ethernet testing via dual-port                  Through mode

•       No data interpretation errors with revolutionary new GUI on 7-inch TFT screen,

        historical event logger, visual gauges and 3D-icon depictions of pass/fail                      outcomes

•       Simpler reporting with integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity capabilities

•       Centralized support for injection/monitoring of errors and alarms, trace

        messaging, overhead monitoring/manipulation and performance monitoring


•       Integrated applications to test VoIP services, and additional IP test utilities,

         including VLAN scan and LAN discovery via EXpert VoIP and EXpert IP test tools

•       Support for packet capture and analysis, wireless troubleshooting and TCP

        throughput testing

•       Extended field autonomy with a compact, lightweight platform equipped with a

         long-duration battery pack

•       EXFO Connect-compatible: automated asset management; data goes through             the cloud and into a dynamic database
