Network infrastructure planners must deal with skyrocketing demands for more bandwidth, including in the data center interconnect (DCI) or even in core networks, as service providers are constantly expanding their networks while seeking efficient and cost-effective ways to deploy high-speed links.
Enter the new, FTBx-88400NGE Power Blazer module. It offers a complete suite of 400G testing capabilities that can transition smoothly from lab to field. In addition, when portability is needed, the FTBx-88400NGE can be inserted into the FTB-4 Pro for the most compact 400G solution on the market.
Compatible with portable and rackmount platforms
The new, FTBx-88400NGE Power Blazer provides increased portability and is supported on the FTB-4 Pro. The module can also serve for rackmount applications, where not only one but two FTBx-88400NGE modules can be inserted into the high-performance LTB-8 rackmount chassis to test up to 800G, which is ideal for today’s complex and bandwidth-hungry networks.
The FTBx-88400NGE offers advanced Ethernet testing capabilities, including forward error correction monitoring and validation. The FTBx’s 400G Ethernet testing capabilities include
FlexE (FLEX ETHERNET)
The Flex Ethernet (FlexE) function supports one or more bonded 100GBASE-R PHYs supporting multiple Ethernet MAC operating at a rate of 10, 40, or n x 25 Gbit/s. Flex Ethernet is a key data center technology that helps data centers deliver links that are faster than emerging 400G solutions.
FlexE testing capabilities include:
Advanced optics support
The following transceivers are supported on the FTBx-88400NGE:
