Part Number:
NetBlazer Series

Application:

Description

The ongoing transition towards a converged network infrastructure for legacy DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fiber Channel and packet-based Ethernet services requires a test tool that can cover a wide range of interfaces and rates, without sacrificing portability, speed or cost. Leveraging the powerful, intelligent FTB-1 handheld platform, the NetBlazer streamlines processes and empowers field technicians to test and validate DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fiber Channel and Ethernet circuits efficiently.

The NetBlazer is a fully integrated DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fiber Channel and Ethernet handheld tester. It offers the industry’s largest touchscreen with unprecedented configuration simplicity via hybrid touchscreen/keypad navigation. Platform connectivity is abundant via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet or USB ports, making it accessible in any environment.

Features:

  • Comprehensive testing for DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN and Ethernet interfaces up to 10 Gbit/s
  • Efficiently assess Fiber Channel networks with best-in-class coverage via 1x, 2x, 4x, 8x and 10x interfaces
  • Packet synchronization turn-up and troubleshooting (SyncE/1588 PTP)
  • FTTA validation (CPRI and OBSAI) at up to 3.1 Gbit/s via BER testing
  • Complete ISDN solution for testing and troubleshooting DS1 or E1 primary rate interfaces (PRI)
  • Simplified BER testing with pass/fail indicators based on user-defined thresholds
  • OTN testing (as per ITU-T G.709) including forward error correction (FEC)
  • Faster Ethernet service activation with bidirectional and one-way delay EtherSAM (ITU-T Y.1564) and RFC 2544 test suites, multiservice traffic generation, Through mode and bit-error-rate (BER) testing
  • True wire-speed, stateful TCP throughput based on RFC 6349 for undisputable SLA enforcement of Ethernet services
  • Carrier Ethernet OAM testing covering MEF, Y.1731 and 802.1ag standards
  • Full linerate packet capture and advanced filtering from 10M to 10G
  • Layer 2 transparency testing with predefined configurations
  • Unprecedented configuration simplicity with hybrid touchscreen/keypad navigation and data entry
  • Increase technician autonomy and productivity with intelligent discovery of remote EXFO Ethernet testers, as well as in-service Ethernet testing via dual-port Through mode
  • No data interpretation errors with revolutionary new GUI on 7-inch TFT screen, historical event logger, visual gauges and 3D-icon depictions of pass/fail outcomes
  • Simpler reporting with integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity capabilities
  • Centralized support for injection/monitoring of errors and alarms, trace messaging, overhead monitoring/manipulation and performance monitoring statistics
  • Integrated applications to test VoIP services, and additional IP test utilities, including VLAN scan and LAN discovery via EXpert VoIP and EXpert IP test tools
  • Extended field autonomy with a compact, lightweight platform equipped with a long-duration battery pack
  • EXFO Connect-compatible: automated asset management; data goes through the cloud and into a dynamic database
  • Offers EXFO TFv−Test Function Virtualization, including FTB Anywhere floating licenses and FTB OnDemand time-based licenses
