EXFO, one of the pioneers in the optical test and measurement industry, had come up with yet another revolutionary product, this time the industry’s first, unique and patented most advanced yet simpler to use OTDR application, Intelligent Optical Link Mapper (iOLM). As the title indicates it is truly more friendly yet powerful and intuitive without any compromise at all….
INTELLIGENT OPTICAL LINK MAPPER – iOLM
When testing a FTTH Passive Optical Network (PON) with an OTDR, it is key to determine optimum parameters providing enough dynamic range with the highest resolution possible. To compensate OTDR technology limitations, more than one OTDR trace is often required to find all the events on the link.
Using different pulse widths and multiple wavelengths overcomes this limitation.
