Measuring PMD the Fast Way
PMD represents a significant danger to both legacy and newly deployed networks. And as systems of 10 Gb/s and faster develop, PMD concern and
awareness continue to grow. EXFO’s FTB-5500B PMD Analyzer helps you get ahead in the field. Whether you need to verify the capacity of legacy fiber
or maintain a network, the modular FTB-5500B is fast, reliable, and ready to go.
Less than 5-Second Testing Time
The rugged FTB-5500B features a market-leading PMD measurement time of 
less than five seconds—for any PMD value. Improve your testing efficiency. 
Reduce testing costs. Test more fiber, and test it faster.
A Unique Approach to Testing Through EDFAs and Removing
Auto-correlation Peaks
The FTB-5500B’s unique technology allows for both the auto-correlation and 
cross-correlation to be known. Therefore, any spectral shape of source can be
used. The auto-correlation peak is thus removed, and higher accuracy and
resolution are obtained. PMD of 0 ps can be measured. In addition, a signal
transmitted through EDFAs can be analyzed for total link PMD. Calibration is
traceable to NIST.
No auto-correlation peak, for increased accuracy and resolution
Testing through EDFAs (above 120 EDFAs)
Under five-second testing time for any range
Minimum measurable PMD: 0 ps
Field-Proof, Advanced Technology 
The FTB-400 UTS Advantage
Housed in the tough, light-magnesium-shell and rubber-bumpered FTB-400 Universal Test System, the FTB-5500B PMD Analyzer will survive knocks,
bumps and drops. Combine up to seven single-slot, field-interchangeable modules in the powerful FTB-400 for simultaneous support of multiple testing
applications (CD analyzer, OTDR and OLTS, among others).
The FLS-5800 CD/PMD Analyzer Source Advantage
A single light source, the FLS-5800 CD/PMD Analyzer Source, can help you characterize both chromatic dispersion (CD) and polarization mode
dispersion (PMD)—reducing testing time and minimizing the potential for human error.
