In only eight months, 10 of the world's 15 largest operators have selected this multiservice test module housed in the FTB-1 platform

What's more, the FTB-880 is unique on the market due to its FLEX configuration, which enables to configure any combination of rates and interfaces on the module to exactly match the requirements of every field technician. It combines maximum configuration flexibility with minimum downtime, meeting the testing needs of today and providing the needed scalability to address future needs.

The FTB-1 is also compatible with EXFO Connect, a service environment that allows operators to significantly reduce OPEX through advanced software applications. For example, EXFO Connect can manage all EXFO field-testing platforms, ensuring uniform, automated upgrades as well as consistent test configurations throughout the fleet, and enabling test experts to spend more time on value-added tasks; in addition, it can correlate test data throughout the network lifecycle to deliver valuable business intelligence.
