WDM-Aware removes the uncertainty about test results, removes the guesswork, automates and speeds up tests, and thereby reduces OPEX. Higher network speeds such as 40G also mean longer distances and wider channels, which weakens the channels and increases filtered noise. EXFO’s latest FTB-5240S/B-P software addition helps to clearly differentiate noise from signals and analyses only what deserves to be analysed: with the on-graph peak detection threshold line, there are no longer any false peak analyses or overlooked low-power peaks, making the FTB-5240S/B-P a powerful analysis tool that delivers extremely reliable results.
Further, a deployed system ages over time and will continue to change during its life span. EXFO’s FTB-5240S/B-P OSA brings built-in referencing in WDM mode, which allows operators to see the original trace display — what it is today and what has changed. The instrument also enables remote access to test tools to meet the demands of network equipment manufacturers who require 24/7 testing, lab simulations and remote control. The latest SCPI command feature allows the stop-and-start of any kind of operation and the ability to fully configure the OSA remotely.
