Meet the FTBx-88480, EXFO's new compact, multi-service 400G tester. It enables busy field technicians to move smoothly between testing different rates (1G-400G), interfaces and transceiver types with one platform. Modular by design, the EXFO FTBx-88480 includes the unique Optical Transceiver System (OTS) and 112G electrical lanes built to test today’s transceivers, while future-proofing for next-gen technologies.

“A key challenge operators face is how to ensure their network migrations are done reliably and cost-efficiently while staying nimble enough to manage existing infrastructure. With the FTBx-88480 solution, we’ve combined the latest in 1G-400G testing with a flexible, future-proof architecture that lets our customers do more today and continue deriving value for years to come.”

-- Sophie Legault, director Mobile and Cloud Solutions at EXFO

FTBx-88480 features

  • Multiple technologies (Ethernet, OTN, DCO and more), rates (1G-400G) and interfaces (SFP, QSFP28 and QSFP-DD) all on the same platform—no stacking of modules
  • Test twice as fast: validate two circuits simultaneously with dual-port testing (1G-400G)
  • Future-proof 112G electrical lanes for testing next-gen 100G-400G optics
  • Unique Open Transceiver System (OTS): compatibility with both current and future high-speed transceivers
  • Quickly validate pluggable transceivers (1G-400G) with iOptics’ automated, intelligent test application
  • Same intuitive GUI across all EXFO platforms means technicians of any skill level are up and running fast


Discover the FTBx-88480

With so many connectivity points to test and budget restraints to consider, operators need test equipment that can do more—equipment that’s built to handle the latest new technologies as they emerge.

The FTBx-88480 400G tester helps operators make the most of tight test-equipment budgets. Operators invest in a single, multiservice platform that is flexible enough to test both emerging 400G networks as well as 1G-100G networks. And its modular platform means upgradeability is built-in—so it's ready to handle the evolution from “now” to “next”.
