More modules for EXFO’s LTB-8 Test Platform

EXFO has expanded the number of plug-in modules for their next-generation test platform, the LTB-8. This compact unit, equipped with an ultra-powerful processor and highly intuitive interface, gives the lab user an optimised instrument to run dedicated test applications simply and efficiently for technologies such as Ethernet, OTN, Fibre Channel, SONET/SDH and more.

The current module range comprises:

  • FTBx-1750 Power Meter Module
  • FTBx-5245 Optical Spectrum Analyser
  • FTBx-88×0 10G Multiservice module
  • FTBx-88200 100G Multiservice module
  • FTBx-9150 Optical Switch
  • FTBx-9160 MEMS Optical Switch
  • FTBx-9600 Utility Module

An upgrade path for existing users of the IQS-600 modular test platform, enabling migration from the old to the new, has been mapped out by EXFO so please contact us for details and trade-in offers.

New Products from EXFO – Tunable Laser Source & Matrix Optical Switch

EXFO has recently launched two new products that Elliot Scientific is able to offer to the UK and Irish telecom sectors.

IQS-2800 ITLA Tunable Laser Source – Up to 36 continuous wave high power lasers in one box

The recent upsurge in bandwidth requirements by carriers is pushing next-generation transmission systems to achieve new capacity limits via use of complex high-order modulation formats like dual-polarisation quadrature phase-shift keying (DPQPSK).

The new EXFO IQS-2800 is a modular test solution, housed in the IQS-636 platform, that provides researchers and engineers with a comprehensive way to design and test these future ultra-high-capacity network architectures. The lasers are continuous wave (CW), tunable, with a high-power output, narrow 100 kHz linewidth, and 10 pm resolution tunability over the C, L or A band.

MXS-9100 MEMS MxN Matrix Optical Switch – Any number of M input fibres can connect to any number of N output fibres

The new MXS-9100 optical switch is the perfect solution for centralised instrument sharing or automated testing in manufacturing. With its all-optical cross-connect technology, the MXS-9100 provides a unique combination of low insertion loss, fast protected switching and high reliability required in the lab or manufacturing environment. It allows any of M input fibres to connect to any of N output fibres in a fully non-blocking manner.
