EXFO’s FTB-1 Ethernet Portable Field Tester – NetBlazer V2 series; the ongoing transition toward a converged network infrastructure 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 Pro handheld platform, the NetBlazer V2 Series streamlines processes and empowers field technicians to test and validate DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel, CPRI and Ethernet circuits efficiently.

  • FTTA/C-RAN validation from 1.2 Gbit/s to 9.8 Gbit/s via layer-2 CPRI protocol and unframed BER testing
  • Real-time, high-resolution radio frequency (RF) spectrum analysis using digitized RF data (IQ data) in the CPRI link
  • Carrier Ethernet OAM testing covering the Y.1731, G.8113.1 (MPLS-TP), MEF and 802.1ag and IEEE 802.3ah Link OAM standards
  • Ethernet service activation with EtherSAM (ITU-T Y.1564) service configuration and performance tests, complemented by Remote Discovery, Smart Loopback and Dual Test Set capabilities
  • Ultra-powerful processing backed by quad-core FTB platform with Windows 8.1 Professional operating system, providing access to many third-party apps and the ability to connect to a wide range of devices.
  • Comprehensive testing for DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel (1x-16x), CPRI and Ethernet interfaces up to 100 Gbit/s
  • iSAM intelligent service activation methodology, based on the ITU-T Y.1564 and RFC 6349 standards, simplifies and speeds up Ethernet service activation
  • RFC-6349 testing: 10M-100G multisession TCP testing with bidirectional results
  • Pluggable CFP4 and QSFP28 optics to facilitate the testing of next-generation networks, and QSFP+ interface for 40GigE
  • Dual-port or quad-port testing up to 10G WAN and LAN, allows technicians to run up to four simultaneous tests.
