The Ultimate Platform for Network Experts

Technologically speaking, todays networks are more complex than ever. Thousands of components have to work in harmony, and deployment specialists are responsible for tuning entire systems for optimal network performance and ensuring that records are up to date. At the same time, fiber counts are skyrocketing, and dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) is entrenched in long-haul applications, moving into metro.
New architectures. New deliverables. New documentation needs. A brand-new paradigm. Now, how do you rise to the challenge? With the tough and proven FTB-400 Universal Test System from EXFO. This revolutionary test platform streamlines field-based test and measurement operations onto a single powerful platform. Welcome to multitasking in the field.
