long-range visibility, acquiring several sets of waveforms, using different OTDR settings, often is necessary.
The T-BERD/MTS-8000 is now enabled with a high-performance ultra long-haul (UHD) optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) module range that achieves the highest performance of any OTDR field instrument on the market (50dB at 1550nm).
The OTDR generally underestimates the loss of any insertion loss test, especially in multimode fiber, since it uses a laser instead of a LED source, and often has large differences in loss depending on the direction of the test in the fiber.
An OTDR can locate fiber events and measure the losses attributable to cable, connectors, splices and/or other components.
EXFO's Four-Wavelength OTDR is the perfect tool for fiber-optic contractors and private network operators.
To reliably assess individual cable events, connector quality, and splice quality, an OTDR is used to accept and troubleshoot fiber optical cables.
With more than five years of OTDR business to date, the recent MTS-5100e award ensures that the deployment of fiber optic networks are backed by the most effective tools on the market," said Jim Coulter, director of Acterna's Federal Division.
