Field technicians, even those with no DWDM experience, will benefit from the two-in-one features of the Optical Wave Expert, says EXFO.
It is said to save time and money for multiple service operators as the first device to integrate DWDM channel power validation and intelligent OTDR fault-locating capabilities on a single port.
Users, says EXFO, can automatically measure, diagnose and troubleshoot optical fibre links.
Technicians can perform real-time channel power readings through an intuitive GUI and benefit from tuneable OTDR capabilities.
Bar graph and table views are available on a touchscreen display.
EXFO says the device ensures faster service and repair compared with the “trial and error” process that previously relied on separate, less proficient devices which increased the chance of disabling nodes.
It is said to fill a gap in the market by eliminating the need for multiple instruments and seamlessly isolating problems for quick resolution.
