Ethernet / Transmission

 

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

        statistics


•       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
