EXFO (News - Alert) Inc., a global leader of test and service assurance solutions in the wireless telecommunications industry, has recently introduced a 40G/100G-ready high-power PMD source module, the FTB-2200 Broadband Source (News - Alert).
The newly announced FTB-2200 is used in conjunction with the FTB-5500B generalized interferometric PMD analyzer. It enables the fastest and most accurate field-based PMD measurements currently on the market.
FTB-5500B’s application include short reach, long reach, ultra long-reach, amplified link,
and Compensation at 10Gb/s and 40Gb/s data rates.
Measuring low values of polarization mode dispersion, with increasing data speeds has become more crucial than ever. PMD is a significant obstacle in both legacy and newly deployed networks for a long time.
The battery-operated, high-power FTB-2200 Broadband Source when used with the market-leading FTB-5500B PMD Analyzer offers high-speed fiber networks, including long-haul and submarine routes, with more accurate measurement of PMD.
This latest EXFO innovation has been designed for the FTB-200 Compact Platform and provides customers with additional tools to meet demands for stable and resilient network performance.
EXFO’s FTB-2200, equipped with a built-in polarization scrambler, ensures that all legacy and newly designed networks will achieve optimal performance, regardless of transmission speed.
Moreover, the wireless telecommunications provider offers innovative solutions for the development, installation, management and maintenance of converged, IP fixed and mobile networks—from the core to the edge. Key technologies supported include VDSL2, ADSL2+, 3G, 4G/LTE (News - Alert), IMS, Ethernet, OTN, FTTx, and various optical technologies.
In related industry news, recently EXFO Inc. introduced the new BrixHawk Distributed Analyzer for live mobile network troubleshooting, network service optimization and to speed up LTE /3G network rollouts.
