  • Unparalleled software user-friendliness: all automated
  • Testing range: up to 140 km




The Only Combined CD and PMD Test Module on the Market

Building on EXFO’s market-proven dispersion testing expertise, the FTB-5700 Single-Ended Dispersion Analyzer combines chromatic dispersion (CD) and polarization mode dispersion (PMD) measurement into a single, highly automated, high-efficiency test solution. It offers the true advantage of one—one-ended testing using one module, one connector and a one-step test setup, delivering one combined-results file—dramatically reducing the cost of ownership and speeding up the learning curve, the test cycles, as well as reporting

Housed in either of EXFO’s multimodular portable platforms, the FTB-200 Compact Platform and the FTB-500 Platform, the FTB-5700 delivers straightforward, yet advanced CD and PMD characterization in a single affordable instrument optimized for both entry level and seasoned technicians.

CD and PMD Testing Combo—The Benefits
  • Provides exclusive single-ended testing technology
  • Enables one technician to test both CD and PMD
  • Requires only one training session
  • Minimizes manual interventions, for fail-safe results
  • Reduces required connections to just one
  • Saves valuable processing time—one GUI, one results file, one report

Characterize CD in a Snap

The ongoing race to develop high-speed transmission systems and to increase available bandwidth is facing certain limitations. Chromatic dispersion (CD) measurements are becoming more and more critical for carriers and service providers looking to upgrade their systems to faster transmission rates and longer routes, thanks to the advent of reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers (ROADMs). What’s more, since the eight test points are adjustable, the FTB- 5700 never loses test points due to high attenuation. Whatever the link, test parameters are automatically optimized.

Key CD Testing Features
  • Groundbreaking single-ended testing technology
  • Link-length measurement
  • Network recognition: automatically adopts the proper parameter setups
  • Complies with ITU G.65X fiber testing standards

The Only Single-Ended PMD Analyzer on the Market

PMD is a real threat to both legacy and newly deployed networks. And as high- speed services are being massively deployed, PMD awareness continues to grow. Whether you need to assess the PMD level of legacy fiber or perform network maintenance, EXFO’s FTB-5700 is fast, reliable and ready to go.

Key PMD Testing Features
  • The only single-ended PMD analyzer on the market: reduced both the testing time and operational expenses (OPEX)
  • Random SOP scrambling: robust technology for aerial fibers
  • New technology based on state of polarization (SOP) scrambling analysis

PMD is an average of delay values over a given wavelength range and state of polarization. The FTB-5700 being tunable, over 200 wavelength pairs are acquired, all at different states of polarization. Each pair provides a delay point. For even higher accuracy, you can launch multiple scans and perform an averaging of all test results.

A Highly Intuitive User Interface with No Setup Required

Featuring easy-to-read pass/fail results and providing a view of all key parameters and values on one screen, the FTB-5700’s user interface is all about field testing simplicity and efficiency.

Fast-Track Data Post-Processing with FastReporter Software

The optional FastReporter software package provides you with the postprocessing tools and functionalities you need to optimize your test cycles, whatever the application. Designed for off-line analysis of field-acquired data, FastReporter offers a truly intuitive graphical user interface, which contributes to boosting productivity.
