Combining CD and PMD for Precise Link Characterization
Designed for ultra-longhaul and 40/100 Gbit/s applications, EXFO’s FTB-5500B PMD and FTB-5800 CD analyzer combo provides you with the speed, accuracy and high performance you need to ensure high-quality network services. Housed in the expert FTB-500 platform, the FTB-5500B and FTB-5800 test modules survive splashes, knocks and drops—ideal for CO and field conditions.
Characterizing Chromatic Dispersion in the Field
Chromatic dispersion (CD) causes pulse broadening and can have a very negative impact on transmission performance by increasing the Bit Error Rate. EXFO’s FTB-5800 CD Analyzer offers high performance in a field-ready unit for all chromatic dispersion testing situations.
