FTB-700G V2 Specification

The ultra-portable choice for multiservice testing

Optical testing

Removing complexity from the OTDR

Using a unique and patented automated multipulse and multiwavelength acquisition approach, the field-proven iOLM surpasses the traditional OTDR and linear view, providing 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 single-button operation.

Multiservice testing

Powerful yet simple

The FTB-700G V2 Series is a fully integrated DSn/PDH, ISDN, SONET/SDH, OTN, Fibre Channel, CPRI and Ethernet services handheld tester with an 8-inch multitouch screen delivering unprecedented configuration simplicity. Thanks to EXFO’s highly intuitive graphical user interface (GUI), streamlined procedures and predefined configurations, the FTB-700G V2 requires minimal to no training for new users. Furthermore, platform connectivity is abundant via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet and USB ports, making it accessible in any environment and at any time, thereby reducing truck rolls and unnecessary dispatching of field technicians.

Radio frequency (RF) spectrum analysis over CPRI

Unmatched on the market

With EXFO’s OpticalRF™ application, dangerous and difficult climbs can be eliminated by providing access to RF signals through the digital CPRI link available at the BBU site – which can be at the bottom of the tower or at the BBU hotel located kilometers away (C-RAN architecture). The digital link uses the CPRI protocol to carry RF signals in digital format (IQ data). By accessing the IQ data at the BBU location, the costs associated with truck rolls and tower climbs are reduced. In addition, time to resolution of complex RF issues is accelerated by enabling multi-user collaboration via remote access capabilities to the OpticalRF™ application from any smart device or laptop.

FTB-700G V2 Series: unified to optimize operational efficiency

iOLM | intelligent Optical Link Mapper

  • No training required: self-setting device
  • No trace misinterpretations thanks to a clear, schematic link view
  • Link-AwareTM delivers simple and accurate fiber-optic-link test results
  • Prompt diagnosis for quick and accurate identification of network issues
  • Available for all channels, including CWDM and DWDM

CPRI layer 2 link validation

  • Eliminates unnecessary tower climbs by testing the health of the remote radio head (RRH) from the bottom of the tower
