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.
