EXFO’s ‘Fast Short Link’ OTDR feature tests high counts of optical short links in data centers – Cabling Install

Concurrent to the 2017 BICSI Winter Conference in Tampa, FL, the network test, data and analytics specialst EXFO Inc. this week introduced its newly released OTDR test feature, ‘Fast Short Link.’ The company contends that the Fast Short Link OTDR feature ‘is able to characterize high counts of optical short links five times faster than what was possible so far in the industry.’

Fast Short Link is a new capability of EXFO’s iOLM software, designed to drive the company’s line of OTDRs to optimal performance through automation and intelligent diagnostics. The Fast Short Link feature provides link characterization including accurate link loss, length and high-level link mapping, ‘all in under 10 seconds per fiber,’ as stated by EXFO. The new feature is especially designed for applications such as data centers, FTTA, enterprise LAN/WAN, and for any other high count of short links.
