EXFO Adds Wideband Copper And DSL Testing Capabilities To The Powerful FTB-1 Handheld Platform

The new FTB-610 and FTB-635 test modules eliminate the complexity of testing and troubleshooting triple-play and broadband ADSL2+/VDSL2 services.

QUEBEC CITY, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO) (TSX: EXF) announced today the launch of the FTB-610 Wideband Copper Test Module and FTB-635 Wideband Copper and DSL Test Module. Housed in the FTB-1 platform, these new additions to EXFO's FTB Ecosystem of modular, field-testing solutions bring its market-leading business benefits and savings to DSL, FTTN and hybrid network circuits and services.

The FTB-610 and FTB-635 test modules combine with the platform's built-in optical power meter, VFL and fiber inspection probe to create a true all-in-one, all-at-once FTTN/hybrid network troubleshooting platform. Their feature sets are aligned with FTTN and VDSL2 requirements, and packed with not only traditional copper tests, but also advanced wideband, noise and fault location tests (e.g., TDR and RFL). The addition of copper and DSL test functionalities to the FTB-1, which also supports high-speed Ethernet, OTDR and iOLM testing, makes it the industry's most comprehensive test tool for deeper network troubleshooting.

The FTB-610 module offers deep copper analysis, including the innovative SmartRâ„¢ test suite, which automatically runs all the decisive copper tests and translates the results into plain language and graphical results to speed up interpretation and troubleshooting of twisted-pair faults. The FTB-635 adds the latest ADSL2+/VDSL2 test capabilities, including full vectoring and bonding support. Using the platform's EXpert IP and EXpert IPTV on-board test suites, the FTB-635 can troubleshoot IPTV and video from either the DSL or Ethernet interfaces, including live video preview, anywhere on the circuit.

"With their comprehensive set of fast and intuitive test capabilities, the new FTB-610 and FTB-635 minimize training requirements, increase first-time-right results, and reduce repeats, making them the ultimate time and budget saver for FTTN/FTTx troubleshooting," said Étienne Gagnon, Vice-President of EXFO's Test and Measurement Division. "The powerful, yet compact FTB-1 test platform exemplifies our commitment to helping operators reduce costs and increase operational efficiency at all stages of the network lifecycle."
