The EXFO FTB-8120NGE Transport Blazer Test Module provides advanced DSn/PDH, SONET/SDH, next-generation SONET/SDH and OTN test functions in a single unit, eliminating the need for multiple purpose-built test platforms when commissioning or troubleshooting SONET/SDH, OTN and new data-aware SONET/SDH circuits. The increased demand for data and video services continues to drive the need for more cost-effective networks. Technologies such as next-generation SONET/SDH are becoming more important to service providers as they offer an economical means of introducing new revenue-generating, Ethernet-based transport services on existing SONET/SDH infrastructures. In addition, implementation of OTN (ITU-T G.709) will also help reduce the cost of operating DWDM networks by achieving higher transmission quality with longer optical links through the use of forward error correction (FEC).
