Ideal Networks launches fiber optic cable tester OTDR II
By Renée Francoeur
August 9, 2016 – Ideal Networks has launched the tablet-style OTDR II (Optical Time Domain Reflectometer), a Tier 2 fiber optic cable tester to find faults in fiber cabling.
The OTDR II includes Ideal Networks’ Optical Link Mapper (iOLM), turning graphs into a diagram, displaying all events along the link with pass/fail results. The automated system’s algorithms also prevent common OTDR testing challenges, Ideal Networks claims, such as wrong OTDR traces, having numerous traces to analyse and repeating the same job twice.
