FTBx-740C-DWC - Tunable OTDR

The FTBx-740C-DWC is a tunable DWDM OTDR designed to test through mux/demux channels to provide complete end-to-end link characterization and troubleshooting of metro Ethernet links and commercial services.

This unit is ideal for use for commercial services in fiber-to-the building (FTTB)/fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) and cellular-backhaul (CBH) deployments that are evolving and migrating from coarse wavelength-division multiplexing (CWDM) to DWDM metro Ethernet links.

This tunable OTDR in the C-band covers channel spacing of 100 GHz/50 GHz based on the ITU-T standard grid. The tunable laser also features a high dynamic range for improved performance, and the long reach needed to cover metro/long-haul applications. Moreover, its PON-optimized tuning makes it eady for future WDM-PON testing.

This solution complements the FTB-7400E-CWxx, our existing offering for CWDM deployments.

Housed in the FTB-2 Platform, both DWDM and CWDM modules can be used to provide a full characterization kit. For a complete solution, it can be also combined with an Ethernet test module in order to validate the services performance from 10 Mbit/s to 100 G.
