Exfo Inc.’s FTB-1 handheld testing platform is equipped with an Intel ATOM processor and the Windows Embedded Standard operating system, and is optimized for FTTH and ethernet testing. The FTB-1 is “purpose-built for rugged field testing environments”, offering a widescreen TFT display and hybrid touchscreen/keypad navigation. Platform connectivity is via WiFi, Bluetooth, Gigabit ethernet and multiple USB ports. Featuring Exfo’s newly introduced EXpert Test Tools portfolio, the FTB-1 can be further enhanced and tailored to support additional testing capabilities without additional modules. EXpert VoIP allows field technicians to generate and respond to simulated or live VoIP calls to validate performance during turn-up and troubleshooting.
