EXFO (www.exfo.com) has announced a processing speed increase for its FTB-5240S Optical Spectrum Analyzer, which is purpose-built for fast and accurate DWDM network commissioning and high-speed network upgrades up to 40G. The module now operates 10 to 20 times faster, depending on the application being run.When equipped with in-band optical-signal-to-noise-ratio (OSNR) measurement capabilities, the FTB-5240S is a 40G and ROADM network commissioning tool. The company's proprietary in-band OSNR test method is designed to deliver accurate measurements for next-generation systems in which noise can fluctuate from channel to channel. The built-in patent-pending hybrid detection capabilities on EXFO's optical spectrum analyzer enable customers to obtain accurate and automated OSNR measurements from a next-generation network.
