EXFO this week launched what it claims is the industry's first optical fiber multimeter (OFM). Optical Xplorer. Optical Xplorer makes fiber testing simple for all frontline technicians, beginner or expert—radically speeding up the process while empowering them to do more on-site. 

The device verifies optical links in seconds, and if faults are suspected, it finds and identifies them automatically. Optical Xplorer is more than an improvement on existing test tools—it takes a completely new approach to fiber installation, turn-up and repair. This highly-intuitive job helper boosts frontline technician efficiency; ensures better network quality; and minimizes delays and costs associated with escalating problems to expert technicians, said the Company.

Stephen Bull, VP Research and Development, EXFO
Powered by multiple patent-pending technologies, Optical Xplorer marks a turning point in the world of fiber testing. And it’s the kind of innovation that only EXFO, backed by unmatched fiber optic testing expertise, could invent, define and deliver.

Stephane Chabot, VP Test and Measurement, Chabot
Optical Xplorer will help operators and contractors accelerate ROI, improve first-time-right metrics and increase customer satisfaction by equipping their technicians with a purpose-built tool and leaner methods of procedure.
