EXFO's FTBx-8870/8880 Power Blazer has complete testing capabilities with various technologies up to 10G.
Key DSn / PDH and SONET / SDH
Pre-create pre-user-defined bit error rate (BER) thresholds before starting tests. It is easy to interpret the test results with pass / fail information at the end of the tests.
EtherSAM: The new standard in Ethernet testing
EtherSam bidirectional results
Key SLA parameters are measured independently in each test direction and 100% ensure correct service activation the first time.
EtherSAM service configuration test
Sequential tests that verify that every service is properly provided and that all specific performance indicators (KPI) or SLA parameters are met.
EtherSAM service performance test
After the configuration of each service is verified, the service performance test simultaneously verifies the quality of all services.
iSAM: simplified Y.1564 (EtherSAM) and RFC 6349 test
Cable testing with power over Ethernet (PoE)
The FTBx-8870/8800 CPRI protocol feature verifies that a remote radio head (RRH) is fully operational and that the correct small form-factor pluggable (SFP) transceivers are installed and properly connected.
Traffic generation and monitoring
Technicians can configure up to 32 traffic streams to test almost all frame formats including Ethernet II, 802.3, SNAP, IPv4, IPv6, three VLAN levels, MPLS, UDP and TCP.
RFC 6349 service activation method
The RFC 6349 test helps resolve discrepancies between service provider networks and the customer's system.
Carrier Ethernet operations, management and maintenance (OAM)
Advanced traffic filtering and traffic flow troubleshooting.
Performance evaluation of Fiber Channel services
Fiber Channel has critical performance requirements, it is imperative to test every stage of network distribution to ensure proper service levels.
