Micro-OTDR Fiber Fault Monitor

New Micro-OTDR Technology Lets You Quickly and Accurately Detect Faults

Avoid outages caused by fiber faults by Early Detection


More and more companies are using fiber these days, but aren't taking the necessary precautions to avoid costly outages. The key to avoiding outages caused by fiber faults is early detection. With advanced notification of broken links and faults, you'll instantly get the upper hand in preventing outages.

Micro OTDR in action
Traditionally, many fault detectors were plagued with poor performance and operational problems. First, they would occupy an entire optical shelf, which is inefficient. Secondly, they were sensitive to the noise caused by the return reflections.

However, a new "reflection immune" design overcomes these previous limitations by using special firmware to make these single fiber, single wavelength (SFSW) SFP Transceivers immune to reflections. This transceiver is also capable of CWDM data transport in normal use. You won't have to dedicate an entire fiber for monitoring, nor will you sacrifice a CWDM channel, so you'll have more optical fibers for revenue generation.

The bottom line is: you're instantly notified of faults in your fiber transports. This saves you operational expense dollars and helps you quickly get back online during outages (such as disaster-recovery situations).
