Canada : Broadband Technology Report Awards 4 Diamonds to EXFO's Unique intelligent Optical Link Mapper (iOLM) [TendersInfo (India)]

(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) EXFO Inc., announced today that its intelligent Optical Link Mapper (iOLM) was awarded 4 Diamonds by Broadband Technology Report. Building on EXFO s market-leading OTDR expertise, the iOLM simplifies both the field-testing and management processes, leading to significant OPEX reductions for operators.

With one click, the iOLM automatically launches multipulse acquisitions, and then presents a clear, comprehensive link view, illustrated with colored icons. Powered by patent-pending Link-Aware technology and available in both the FTB-1 and FTB-200 portable test platforms, the iOLM test application eliminates the complex aspects of traditional OTDR measurements, such as test parameter settings, multiple acquisitions over the same fiber link, or the time-consuming task of analyzing OTDR traces.

Technology Background and Market Needs - New-generation networks fiber-to-the-home (FTTH), fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA), mobile backhaul, CWDM, distributed antenna systems (DAS), data centers, etc. are shorter, with more closely spaced events, potential fiber bends, contaminated connectors or optical splitters. Accurately characterizing such networks is more difficult for the growing number of new technicians brought over by the massive deployments in the access. In this context, although a commodity in most test procedures, the OTDR remains difficult to operate.

By translating complex OTDR language into real network icons and clear diagnoses, and requiring minimal training, the iOLM turns any technician into a fiber-testing expert and ensures uniform results from various technicians or outside contractors. It also frees managers from the significant level-2 support they must otherwise provide every day, so they can focus on business-generating tasks.

With more fiber deep deployment, tools that help manage the network become more important, said Broadband Technology Report officials. The iOLM elevates the OTDR into a comprehensive measurement tool for modern fiber networks. EXFO has made some great additions to the ever-demanding world of optical fiber testing.

Receiving a 4-Diamond Award from Broadband Technology Report is a great recognition from the cable TV industry. It reinforces the fact that the iOLM is increasingly gaining market acceptance and becoming a reference in fiber characterization, said Étienne Gagnon, Vice-President of EXFO s Test and Measurement Division. To us, the iOLM epitomizes our commitment to helping operators and contractors solve their network-testing challenges while increasing operational efficiency, as it minimizes training time and repeat jobs, enabling even entry-level technicians to achieve expert results.
