OptiFiber® Pro is the industry’s first OTDR built from the ground up to meet the challenges of enterprise fiber optic infrastructures. This troubleshooting and certification tool combines uncomplicated power, unparalleled efficiency and the exact functions needed for troubleshooting campus, data center and storage fiber networks.

The OptiFiber® Pro OTDR elevates fiber optic testing with the industry’s only smartphone interface that turns a technician into a fiber expert. The DataCenter OTDR configuration eliminates uncertainty and errors that occur when testing data center fiber. Its ultra-short dead zones enable testing of fiber patchcords in virtualized data centers. These capabilities, plus the fastest-in-the-industry trace times, make the OptiFiber Pro OTDR a must-have tool.

SmartLoop OTDR enables automated testing and analysis of two fibers in a single test. This patent pending process automatically separates the two fibers for individual pass/fail analysis, display, and reporting. Not only does this cut the testing time by at least half, it also enables bi-directional testing without moving the OTDR to the far end.

  • First OTDR with a smartphone user-interface
  • Industry's shortest event and attenuation dead zones
  • Accelerate fiber certification with the fastest set-up and trace times
  • SmartLoop™ technology enables the testing of two fibers in a single test eliminating the need to travel to the far end of the connection to perform tests.
  • Versiv™ modular design supports copper certification, fiber optic loss, OTDR testing and fiber end-face inspection
  • Instantaneous bi-directional averaging results included at no charge
  • Improve resource utilization with custom configurations for projects and users
  • Simplify use with "DataCenter OTDR™" mode and EventMap™ view
  • Compatible with Linkware™ Live. Linkware Live enables to easily track job progress, get real-time access to test results to quickly fix problems in the field, and easily transfer and consolidate test results from the tester to LinkWare™ PC Cable Test Management Software.

Smartphone User Interface

Most OTDRs are designed for a myriad of applications, causing the user interface to be difficult to navigate and interpret. OptiFiber Pro combines the latest “gesture-based” interface technology with a capacitive touchscreen to deliver the most innovative and user-friendly OTDR.

Advantages:

  • Single-touch tap and swipe control for selecting and scrolling menu items
  • Multi-touch pinch to zoom for easy magnification control on a graphical fiber trace
  • Task-focused design to reduce back and forth navigation through screens
  • Capacitive touchscreen eliminates the need to recalibrate unlike legacy touchscreens
  • Context sensitive on-screen help that gives users additional details or problem resolution suggestions

Optimized for the Datacenter

Driven by server virtualization and multi-gigabit links between servers, networks and storage, the datacenter architecture employs more patch cords and dense topology connectors, rendering carrier-class OTDRs with long dead zones ineffective. OptiFiber Pro not only makes fiber deployment in datacenters possible, but provides the highest level of accuracy for quick problem resolution.

With a simple one-touch selection, users enter DataCenter OTDR mode - without setup time for fine-tuning as needed in legacy OTDRs. DataCenter OTDR mode automatically detects OTDR parameters - end-detection algorithms, pulse widths, etc - without getting confused by the short links or number of connectors.

Advantages:

  • Ultra-short event and attenuation dead-zones precisely locates events and faults on fiber links
  • DataCenter OTDR™ mode automatically sets the configuration to quickly test datacenter fiber
  • The EventMap feature depicts fiber events in a way that requires no trace analysis expertise

SmartLoop OTDR

SmartLoop OTDR enables automated testing and analysis of two fibers in a single test while meeting standard's requirements. This patent pending process automatically separates the two fibers for individual pass/fail analysis, display, and reporting. Not only does this cut the testing time by at least half, it also enables instant bi-directional averaged test results without moving the OTDR to the far end. In addition to getting the job done quicker, SmartLoop OTDR further enhances the ease and speed of testing in environments where the far end is difficult of even dangerous to reach because the OTDR never has to be moved to the far end. In addition to getting the job done quicker, SmartLoop meets the standard's requirements of leaving the launch and tail fibers in their initial locations during both bi-directional tests.

Test it right and test it fast with SmartLoop - included for free in all OptiFiber Pro modules.

Unique Certification with Flexibility and Efficiency

An important aspect in maximizing an OTDR’s value is to properly plan its day-to-day usage. With built-in project management, OptiFiber Pro allows a project manager to define each user’s role, settings and the associated tasks to be performed – transforming the OTDR into an all-in-one fiber testing tool complete with planning, inspection, certification and reporting.

OptiFiber Pro enhances job efficiency by allowing the workflow planner to create and manage operator and job profiles per project - defined jobs or sets of cable IDs can be assigned to specific operators. The progress and status of each project can also be easily monitored.

Advantages:

  • Full OTDR capability that certifies fiber performance based on job assignment for each operator
  • Powerful project management facilitates OTDR sharing with clear job assignment for each operator
  • Easy monitoring of job progress with pass/fail results
  • On-screen report generation and upload to LinkWare™ application


Fiber Endface Inspection and Certification

OptiFiber Pro incorporates the FiberInspector Pro video inspection system which enables you to quickly inspect and certify fiber end-faces inside ports or patch cords. It’s 1-second automated PASS/FAIL certification, per IEC 61300-3-35, eliminates human subjectivity and enables anyone to become a fiber inspection expert. Results can be saved in the certification report alongside OptiFiber Pro's OTDR results.
