Simple to use, pocket-sized solution: quickly and accurately tests full line rate Gigabit Ethernet speeds. Carrier-grade quality: dedicated FPGA-powered hardware in a rugged, battery-operated solution with repeatable and extremely reliable test metrics. Untethered testing experience: technicians get extended battery life and escape the confines of harsh testing environments by connecting to their Android device using Bluetooth® low energy technology. Efficient job close-out: automated report generation (PDF or CSV files uploaded by email or shared using EXFO Connect client service). Ideal companion for your activation tool kit: combine with an optical power meter, fiber inspection probe (FIP) or copper/DSL tester to cover turn up of all essential FTTx or business services.
Measuring polarization mode dispersion the fast way Polarization mode dispersion (PMD) represents a significant danger to both legacy and newly deployed networks because high PMD can induce Bit Error Rate (BER). EXFO’s FTB- 5500B PMD Analyzer helps you get ahead in the field. Whether you need to verify the capacity of legacy fiber or upgrade a network to any speed, the modular FTB-5500B is fast, reliable and ready to go. Designed for ultra-longhaul and 40/100 Gbit/s (and higher) applications, EXFO’s FTB-5500B PMD and FTB-5800 CD analyzer combo provides you with the speed, accuracy and high performance you need to ensure high-quality network services. Housed in the expert FTB-500 platform, the FTB-5500B and FTB-5800 test modules survive splashes, knocks and drops—ideal for CO and field conditions.
OpticalRFTM is an easy-to-use solution that quickly identifies issues such as external RF interference, internal PIM and external PIM. Supported on the compact and powerful FTB-1 Pro platform, OpticalRFTM provides access to the RF signals through the digital CPRI link available at the BBU site (at the bottom of the tower or at the BBU hotel located kilometers away) – therefore eliminating unnecessary truck rolls and tower climbs. OpticalRFTM Highllights CPRI rate option from 2 to 7 (1.2 Gbit/s to 9.8 Gbit/s) Hardware-ready for CPRI rate option 9 (12.1 Gbit/s) Capture/replay RF spectrum with IQ recording capability Many RF spectrum options including waterfall, persistence, RBW, VBW, Min./Max./Avg. hold, etc… Remote connection and control capabilities allows multiple users to troubleshoot from any smart device or laptop Test solution supported on: FTB-870v2, FTB-880v2, FTB-870Q, FTB-880Q, FTB-720Gv2, FTB-730Gv2 and FTB-890NGE
FIELD TEST WORKFLOW AUTOMATION SOLUTION TestFlow efficiently and accurately orchestrates the flow of information throughout critical testing phases during the deployment of FTTA, DAS and FTTH networks. In short, it ensures compliance to test process and design thresholds, reduces times of installation and troubleshooting, and accelerates time-to-revenue. Get more business, do less admin Network transformations are driving fiber deeper everywhere. This means that good enough testing is no longer good enough – inefficient, error-prone manual processes will take their toll on revenues. Did you know that admin and reporting tasks can take up half of the time of technicians on a field job? On the backend, processing high volumes of test results also ties up a lot of management time. With more to do in less time, reviewing results is often what is ditched first. When spot-checking becomes the only option, it is vital that you can trust your results, your technicians and contractors. With TestFlow, complete jobs that would normally take you weeks in minutes.
One software does it all FastReporter equips you with the right post-processing functionalities to overcome the challenges of analyzing fiber-optic test and measurement data, whatever the application. Designed for off-line or live analysis of field-acquired data, FastReporter has a highly intuitive interface for ease of use. With a single software to manage data and generate reports for all your optical-layer test applications, you are on the right path towards high efficiency and productivity. That’s not all. FastReporter is now included in EXFO’s TestFlow–an innovative cloud-based field test management solution. You can now benefit from faster job completion thanks to the automated diagnosis of measurements and batch results analysis.
What it does, how it works iOLM is an innovative OTDR-based application that uses multipulse acquisitions and advanced algorithms to deliver information on every element in the link with the following advantages: Provides one-touch, automatic analysis and clear link view display Minimizes training and avoids misconfiguration via automatic parameter settings and clear go/no-go results Turns complex OTDR information into simple and accurate analysis via Link-Aware™ technology Identifies each event on the network and obtains straightforward fiber link status via Optical Link View Provides prompt diagnosis enabling network issues to be fixed quickly and efficiently Generates OTDR trace files (.sor) Dynamic multipulse acquisition Adjusts test parameters dynamically for ANY link under test using a mix of short, medium and long pulses. Intelligent trace analysis Based on the multiple acquisitions and with the help of advanced algorithms, iOLM can detect more events with maximum resolution. All results in a single view Results are displayed in an icon-based fiber-link view to quickly assess an event's pass/fail status per standard selected, removing risk of misinterpretation. Comprehensive diagnosis Delivers an analysis of failed events and suggests solutions; guides the technicians in fixing the fault quickly and successfully.
› Truly scalable from one stand-alone unit to a centrally managed system, without the hassle of any upgrades › Adaptive technology that sets the best possible fault detection thresholds while reducing false positives; requires no OTDR experience or previous knowledge of the fiber under test › Add test ports without adding rack space › System is compliant with NEBSTM for 24/7 permanent installations › Fiber can be put on surveillance with just two clicks, upon commissioning or after repair › System remote diagnosis and management, as found in server equipment (BMC) › High OTDR performance throughout all operation ranges, as opposed to just the longest pulse width Self-Learning, Plug-and-Play Unit Fiber Guardian is a plug-and-play solution that is simple enough for beginners, yet powerful and flexible enough for experts. The unit does not require any additional infrastructure, i.e., no server or external PC—just a LAN/WAN connection and a web browser for remote access. If you have limited knowledge of the fault-detection thresholds required for a new fiber, simply select the appropriate sensitivity level desired—fine, normal or coarse—and Fiber Guardian will take care of the rest. A diagnostic process with adaptive learning algorithms optimally determines where your selected level of fault-detection thresholds can and cannot be applied on the trace. If you own a competing solution and are tired of it producing alarms for no reason, or annoyed by its lengthy and fully manual event-by- event threshold-setting process, Fiber Guardian is for you.
