Optical Spectrum Analyzer
Feb 2010EXFO Inc.Request Info
To facilitate network commissioning, upgrading and troubleshooting for carriers and network equipment manufacturers, Exfo Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. has launched the FTB-5240BP, a field optical spectrum analyzer. Field crews can analyze the spectral content of any modulation format, measure the optical signal-to-noise ratio between ultradense signals, track nonlinear effects and monitor component imperfections. The system can perform in-depth characterization and troubleshooting on ultradense wavelength-division multiplexing networks with limited spacing of 25 and 12.5 GHz. It makes optical signal-to-noise ratio measurements in systems where noise fluctuates from channel to channel, such as reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers and 40-G testing in next-generation networks.
