AFL SimpleView software for optical fiber and connector inspection
By Alyssa Dalton
September 15, 2011 – AFL has launched its SimpleView software for optical fiber and connector inspection, which it says permits technicians to use existing field-issued laptops, tablets and palmtop computers as a fiber inspection system by simply plugging in a Noyes DFS1 FiberScope. According to AFL, fiber endface contamination is widely recognized as a key cause of network performance issues, outages and resulting in costly truck rolls. The software is compatible with Windows XP and Windows 7 operating systems and requires a single USB 1.1 port.
