10G-100G Ethernet Testing


The Power Blazer series of modules offers a full suite of test capabilities for multiple technologies up to 10G, addressing different test applications ranging from lab to field.

As it becomes clear that 100G networks will be using CFP4 and QSFP28 interfaces, enabling both data center and carriers to deploy 100G circuits more cost effectively, it follows that 100G test solutions will evolve in that same direction. EXFO’s FTBx-88200NGE is the first test solution that offers integrated CFP4 and QSFP28 interfaces; ready for the 100G network evolution. The FTBx-88200NGE offers a full suite of Ethernet and OTN test capabilities, including advanced lab test options, making it the perfect test solution to help NEMs develop and test their next-generation 100G network equipment. NEMs can also benefit from EXFO’s LTB-8 platform and EXFO Multilink application to have a complete and agile lab test solution. Due to the compact size and versatility of EXFO’s FTB-2 Pro and FTB-4 Pro portable platforms, the Power Blazer modules are also ready to take testing from the lab to the field.
