EXFO makes a move to acquire Yenista Optics

Network test specialist EXFO has signed an agreement to acquire Yenista Optics for an undisclosed sum. The deal is subject to a number of conditions to be completed before closing.

Yenista Optics, a privately held company based in Lannion, France, supplies advanced optical test equipment for the R&D and manufacturing markets. Its product portfolio includes benchtop optical spectrum analysers, tunable lasers, tunable filters and passive optical component test systems for network equipment manufacturers and optical component vendors.

EXFO launches tunable CWDM OTDR modules

EXFO has launched the FTB-740C-CWDM, a tunable optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) module designed for its handheld FTB-1 platform, which enables technicians to test all 18 ITU-defined CWDM channels without having to swap modules.

This capability will be speed up network testing for cable multiple-service operators (MSOs) and contractors, who will always have the CWDM wavelength required for characterising their network through multiplexers and demultiplexers (mux/demux).

EXFO launches FTB-4 Pro platform for all-in-one 100G test

EXFO has launched the FTB-4 Pro platform, which it claims is the industry's smallest platform for testing high-speed optical networks.

The FTB-4 Pro is the latest addition to EXFO's modular test portfolio. It supports a wide range of modules across a wide range of test scenarios, from lab applications to field testing across all phases of the service delivery chain: development, deployment, maintenance and troubleshooting.

EXFO offers OSA designed for network equipment manufacturers

The new FTBx-5245 Series of optical spectrum analysers (OSAs) from EXFO are dedicated to R&D labs and manufacturing. Faced with today’s unprecedented transformation challenges, network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) must innovate faster while managing costs and remaining agile in their production processes. The versatile form factor of the FTBx-5245 Series maximises return on investment for NEMs, according to EXFO.

Fast Short Link from EXFO tests short links three times faster

Test and measurement vendor EXFO says that its new software, Fast Short Link, can characterise short optical links three times faster than before. Fast Short Link provides link characterisation including accurate link loss, length and high-level link mapping, all under 10 seconds per fibre.

EXFO introduces LTK-1 benchtop power meter

EXFO has launched the LTK-1, which combines the FTB-1750 power meter module in the new LTB-1 platform. Together, the kit delivers a low-cost, high-performance benchtop power meter aimed at lab and production environments.  

The FTB-1750 optical power meter delivers high-performance power measurements. The patented design of the FTB-1750 saves time, cuts costs and significantly enhances measurement throughput, the company claims. Its 85dB range and fast stabilisation time allow engineers and technicians to simultaneously measure high and low signals on up to four channels.

EXFO launches TestFlow cloud-based test automation

EXFO has launched TestFlow, its new process automation and compliance application that helps mobile network operators to streamline and automate complex testing procedures during the construction and service turn-up phases of fibre-based mobile networks, including centralised radio access network (C-RAN), fibre-to-the-antenna (FTTA), distributed antenna system (DAS) and small cell deployments.
