EXFO’s FTBx-88480 enables field technicians to move smoothly and expertly between testing different rates (1G-400G), interfaces, and transceiver types (SFP, QSFP28, and QSFP-DD) – all within a single, compact platform designed for both field (network operator and data center) and lab environments. It supports multiple technologies (Ethernet, OTN, DCO, and more) with no stacking of modules required. With everything on one instrument, technicians can move smoothly and quickly from testing one requirement to another, speeding up the entire process. And by supporting 112G-lane optics, the FTBx-88480 is ready for today’s and tomorrow’s next-gen pluggable transceivers.
Judge’s Comment: “This is a very useful instrument for testing and commissioning of 400G links. Very good feature integrations, and it appears ruggedized for field use.”
