EXFO FTB-700G Module


FTB-700G Series
Available models: FTB-720G, FTB-720G+, FTB-730G and FTB-730G+ All-in-one Ethernet/optical solution for field technicians installing, testing and troubleshooting FTTx, front haul, backhaul, small-cell, DAS, remote radio head and data center networks, in addition to OTN, SONET/SDH, Fiber Channel, GigE and 10 GigE, CPRI/OBSAI and SyncE/1588 PTP services, with the added support of OTDR and iOLM capabilities. 

The ongoing transition towards a converged network infrastructure for optical, 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 FTB-1 handheld platform, the FTB-700G Series streamlines processes and empowers field technicians to efficiently test and validate optical, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fiber Channel, CPRI/OBSAI and Ethernet circuits. 
Using a unique and patented automated multi pulse and multi-wavelength acquisition approach, the field-proven iOLM surpasses the traditional OTDR and linear view for expert-level link characterization of any fiber network. This dynamic OTDR-based application uses EXFO’s most advanced algorithms to deliver detailed information and maximum resolution on every element of the link. Thanks to its unmatched intelligence and simplicity, the iOLM converts complex OTDR tests into clear and accurate go/no-go results, through a single button operation. 
The FTB-700G Series comprises fully integrated optical, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fiber Channel, CPRI and Ethernet handheld testers. It offers the industry’s largest touchscreen and unprecedented configuration simplicity via a hybrid touchscreen/keypad navigation interface. Platform connectivity is abundant via 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet or USB ports, making the testers accessible in any environment. Setting a New GUI Standard: Unprecedented Simplicity in Configuration Setup and Navigation The FTB-700G Series intelligent situational-configuration setup feature guides technicians through complete, accurate testing processes (suggestion prompts, help guides, etc.). It reduces navigation by combining associated testing functions on a single screen, and offers intelligent auto discovery that allows a single technician to perform end-to-end testing.
