Go ahead, put EXFO 800G technologies to the test

Be ready for deployment with reliable test solutions that put 800G technologies to the test by accurately simulating real-world conditions. Make sure components and equipment are compliant with the latest industry standards, are live-network ready and 800GE interoperable.

DSP vendors/manufacturers

When 800G DSPs are integrated within transceivers, it’s important to ensure they can transmit signals reliably as well as accurately break out 800G signals.

The FTBx-88800 Series validates 800G signal-breakout accuracy across multiple configurations (i.e., 2x 400GE, 8x 100GE or 4x 200GE), a critical step in evaluating DSPs during development and prior to manufacturing.

Transceiver and cable vendors

Smaller form factors, reduced cost, lower power and the ability to support new, faster speeds are constantly top of mind for transceiver vendors—and their customers. To deliver those check-box items, transceiver vendors must ensure that onboard DSPs are working properly within their optics.

With the FTBx-88800 Series, perform FEC testing and test various DSP properties—including verifying signal-breakout capability. Empower teams to validate DSPs with confidence, knowing EXFO-expertise is behind every intuitive GIU and test process.

Network equipment manufacturers

Transport-technology hardware requires thorough testing to support consistent, stable interconnections between switches and other hardware—both within and between networks.

With the FTBx-88800 Series, set automated routines that test every aspect of a switch by generating layer 2 MAC-layer traffic across ports to ensure that network alarms are working accurately. Experience solutions that leverage the power of automation to ensure high-quality and cost-effective 800G testing programs.

Hyperscalers/data centres

Reliable, predictable performance between and within data centres is critical. Hyperscalers’ mission-critical, centre storage applications rely heavily on stable, reliable Ethernet links as their communications backbones.

Simulate real-world conditions and put 800G technologies to the test with the FTBx-88800 Series. Includes breakout signal testing—especially important within high-density environments like data centres. Implement 800G reliably with test solutions equipped with built-in knowledge and easy-to-interpret GUIs.

Discover the FTBx-88800 Series

The network communications industry is migrating once again—this time the shift is to 800G. Now the rush is on to develop and validate a new wave of high-speed devices. The FTBx-88800 Series empowers transceiver developers, chip makers, equipment vendors and data centres to confidently transition their solutions from lab to fab as they accelerate into hyperdrive with 800G.

Take 800G testing from lab to lab

Another industry first! This time EXFO delivers the industry's first portable, compact 800G test solution. Combine the FTBx-88800 Series with the latest version of EXFO’s FTB-1 Pro portable platform and easily move our 800G test solution within the lab—or from lab to lab—for the utmost in test flexibility and efficiency.

Validate disaggregated 800G signals with confidence

Breakout signal testing is especially important within high-density environments like data centres. Once 800G is rolled out into these live network environments, finding faulty signal-breakout locations could be like finding a needle in a haystack. Validate 800G signal-breakout accuracy across multiple configurations (i.e., 2x 400GE, 8x 100GE or 4x 200GE) with the FTBx-88800 Series.
