Event Table
OptiFiberâ??s event table analysis automatically characterizes and compares loss and reflectance against user defined limits. Results are displayed in an easy-to-read table which makes it simple for you to present to your customers.
Loss/Length Certification
PASS/FAIL Optical loss analysis makes it easy to certify that the fiber meets applicable industry standard requirements â?? and presents the data in a clear, easy-to-interpret format.
FiberInspectorâ?¢ Pro
The fiber inspection video probe provides a high-resolution 250X/400X end-face image of a fiber connector. Grade the image. Save the image â?? and show it to your customer.
OTDR Port Quality Check
OptiFiber incorporates an automated port quality check that warns the user when the OTDR port is dirty or contaminated.

Description
As bandwidth increases to more than 10 Gb/s, the use of fiber optics in premise networks continues to grow- and so do the requirements for testing and certifying it. To ensure the performance of mission-critical fiber infrastructure, network owners need a more complete picture of their fiber plant. And no solution provides a more complete picture than OptiFiber.

OptiFiber integrates power/loss, fiber length measurement, OTDR analysis and fiber connector end-face imaging to provide a higher tier of fiber certification and diagnostics. The companion LinkWare PC software documents, reports and manages all test data.

OptiFiber enables network owners of all experience levels to certify fiber to customer specifications and new industry standards, troubleshoot connection-rich links, and thoroughly document results. It will improve the health of your fiber network. Your fiber cabling will be ready and capable to perform for high-bandwidth applications.

Tier 2 Fiber Certification
Applications such as 10 Gb/s Ethernet require lower losses and higher quality installations. OptiFiber advances the testing of premise fiber optic cabling, providing all the individual tests and documentation required to ensure the cable plant was correctly installed in accordance with best professional practices and new standards.

The TIA TSB-140 includes two tiers of testing that can be chosen by a designer to be specified in a project. Tier 1 accommodates loss and length testing with an optical loss test set (OLTS). Tier 2 testing includes the parameters of Tier 1 and also an OTDR trace of the installed cable plant. By incorporating the proposed two-tier testing method, installers have the most complete picture of the fiber installation and network owners have proof of a quality installation. Recent IEC standards also include the recommendation of a second level of testing.

OptiFiber delivers on Tier 2 certification by integrating bi-directional two-fiber dual-wavelength insertion loss and automated OTDR pass/fail link analysis a one-two combination you will find only with OptiFiber. But OptiFiber doesn’t stop there. It also offers fiber endface grading. Only with OptiFiber can you certify every link with one tool by:

– measuring loss and length
– analyzing the OTDR trace
– grading the connector end-face

Then use the companion LinkWare cable test management software to present this test data in a single certification report that can be archived or submitted as proof of a properly installed and terminated installation.

Powerful Diagnostics
OptiFiber integrates the features that matter most when troubleshooting enterprise networks. These networks are characterized by relatively short lengths of fiber within data centers or between buildings. Fibers are terminated with connectors and segments connected with short patch cables. No other OTDR let’s you see both ends of short patch cables, allowing you to see the condition of your connectors so you can quickly and efficiently diagnose and fix the problem.

Fluke Networks OF-500

OptiFiber leads the industry with:

– event characterization analysis
– advanced multimode modules with event deadzone of .5 meter at 850nm
– advanced singlemode modules with event deadzones of 1 meter at 1310/1550 nm
– a unique map of the channel that illustrates the location of all connectors
– automated OTDR trace and event test limits
– 250x and 400x high magnification video end-face inspection

Document the condition of your network with LinkWare Cable Test Management software.

Auto OTDR Analysis
OptiFiber simplifies OTDR analysis by automating certification and troubleshooting. In Auto OTDR mode OptiFiber automatically:

– optimizes launch conditions for the best resolution
– makes dual wavelength OTDR measurements – 850/1300 nm or 1310/1550 nm
– identifies and characterizes the fiber link and its events
– compares the results to user-defined limits for immediate pass/fail link and event certification
– saves time spent setting and moving cursors

For advanced troubleshooting you can view a trace at two wavelengths. Automatically step from one event to the next and zoom in on those of interest. Measure event loss. Events are also summarized in a table. Save the information for LinkWare reporting.

You may also choose to operate OptiFiber in manual mode so you can set the test parameters yourself.

Fiber End-face Inspection
More than 85% of all fiber failures encountered are due to contaminated fiber end-faces. Such contamination is easily seen with OptiFiber’s video inspection system. View end-faces under 250x or 400x magnification.

You can inspect fibers installed in patch panels and devices without disassembly with OptiFiber’s video probes. The probe is inserted through bulkhead adapters letting you test 10 times faster than traditional scopes. And it’s safer on your eyes, too.

With FiberInspector you can see the condition of the fiber end-face. You can assign a pass or fail grade to the fiber and append a comment. You can apply a scale to help determine the fiber type. And you can save the image for use in certification reports and other documents.

ChannelMap View
Troubleshooting starts here with a simple link diagram that technicians can easily read and interpret.

OptiFiber’s ChannelMap presents the OTDR data in a simple diagram, or map, showing the number and location of connectors. No interpretation necessary. OptiFiber is the only OTDR solution available with this unique technician-friendly feature.

With ChannelMap you can:

– quickly verify the composition of the link
– identify patch cables as short as 1 meter in length

Document the link ChannelMap with LinkWare Cable Test Management software.

Power Meter
You may need a direct measurement of optical power to aid in source and link performance verification. With OptiFiber’s optional power meter module, you have 850nm, 1300nm, 1310nm and 1550nm optical power measurement capability. A single module integrates both power meter and OTDR capabilities, minimizing the number of tools you need to carry with you into the field. All loss/length modules are also capable of making power measurements.

With OptiFiber:

– verify source and link performance
– measure optical power at 850, 1300/1310 and 1550 nm
– display power in dBm or µW
– show min/max power over the duration of the test
– save the results and append comments

Power measurements require a remote light source. Optical sources are available from Fluke Networks as accessories or use your existing calibrated sources.

Results Management
Fluke Networks’ powerful LinkWare Softwarel included with every OptiFiber helps you quickly organize, edit, view, print, save, or archive test results by jobsite, customer, campus building, and more. You can merge test results into an existing database and then sort, search and organize by any number of data fields or parameters.

LinkWare is also available free from our web site. Once your work is done, you can give this powerful application to your customer so they can have instant access to the data electronically or you can export the data as an Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF).

OTDR Port Quality Check
OptiFiber is the only OTDR to incorporate an automated port quality check that warns the user when the OTDR port is dirty or contaminated. This is an important feature that can save users time while delivering a higher level of confidence in the OTDR test results. Over 70% of fiber test results that are inaccurate are due to dirty port connections, which means you may be spending hours trying to find the problem when the problem is in the port, not the fiber link.

OTDR port quality test automatically displays and evaluates the quality of the optical connection at the OTDR port with a Poor, Fair or Good rating. If the connection quality is poor or fair, a warning message appears so you can fix it before you do your OTDR testing.
