EXFO has unveiled its FTB-8830NGE Power Blazer module. As a test tool for next-generation converged networks its testing capabilities extend to Ethernet, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel as well as packet synchronisation (SyncE/1588 PTP). It is designed to meet all the 10G multiservice network testing challenges of today and tomorrow.
From legacy circuits (SONET/SDH) to OTN circuits, the module is fully stocked to execute turn-up, validation and troubleshooting tasks.
For packet-based Ethernet services, the module's unique dual test-set topology enables quick and accurate asymmetrical service level agreement (SLA) validation.
These capabilities combined with the EtherSAM (Y.1564) and SyncE/1588PTP test suites make it the ultimate module for ensuring peak network performance. The Power Blazer also addresses the needs for the turn-up and validation of Fibre Channel circuits at all rates (1x, 2x, 4x, 8x, 10x and 16x), making it the most comprehensive tool on the market.
Furthermore, with two built-in 10G ports and a sleek design, the FTB-8830NGE offers unprecedented port density. When housed in the new FTB-2 Pro compact platform, the number of 10G ports can be expanded up to four simultaneous tests per compact platform, maximizing the field-team's capabilities and efficiency.
