Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD) is a significant hazard to both old and new networks. As systems with speeds of 10 Gb/s and more evolve, there is an increasing concern and need for information about the meaning of PMD. EXFO's FTB-5500B PMD analyzer helps you excel in field measurements. Whether you need to verify the quality of old fibers or perform network maintenance, the FTB-5500B module is a fast, reliable tool always ready to go.

The powerful FTB-5500B module has a unique feature that makes it the market leader in PMD measurement with a measurement time of less than 5 seconds for any PMD value. You can reduce measurement cost, test more fibers and test them faster.

The EXFO FTB5500 B chromatic dispersion analyzer module is compatible with EXFO FTB-500.

Unique approach to EDFA testing and peak elimination

The unique technology used in the FTB-5500B allows the use of known auto- and cross-correlations, making it possible to use a source with any spectrum shape. Thus, the elimination of the auto-correlation peak makes it possible to obtain even greater accuracy and resolution in measurements. It becomes possible to measure PMD with a value of 0 ps. Moreover, the signal transmitted through the Erbium Fiber Amplifiers (EDFA) can also be analyzed, allowing the PMD of the entire link to be measured. Calibration is traceable according to the requirements of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
