FTB-880 NetBlazer multiservice test module covers the test requirements for DSn/PDH and SONET/SDH interfaces for traditional transport testing, as well as Ethernet interfaces up to 10G. The test application is well suited for the deployment of multiservice network elements and services used in access/metro networks, including mobile backhaul, reveals a representative. The FTB-880 boasts a FLEX configuration, enabling users to configure any combination of rates and interfaces on the module.

The FTB-810x NetBlazer series, launched in conjunction with the FTB-880, comes equipped to test DSn/PDH and SONET/SDH circuits in access and metro networks. The FTB-810x NetBlazer series enables field technicians to turn up, validate, and troubleshoot transport circuits covering T1/E1 to OC-192/STM-64 testing up to 10 Gbps.

"The FTB-8130NGE Power Blazer was the first multiservice tester on the market, and now, with the transition to converged networks, EXFO is pleased to bring multiservice testing even closer to the edge of the network with the FTB-880," says Etienne Gagnon, vice president, Wireline Division and Corporate Marketing.
