The iOLM is designed to simplify OTDR testing by eliminating the need to configure parameters, and/or analyse and interpret multiple complex OTDR traces. Its advanced algorithms dynamically define the testing parameters, as well as the number of acquisitions that best fit the network under test. By correlating multipulse widths on multiple wavelengths, the iOLM locates and identifies faults with maximum resolution-all at the push of a single button.GO BEYOND OTDR TESTINGInnovation is front and centre at EXFO, and the intelligent Optical Link Mapper (iOLM) is a prime example of a game-changing solution.
The iOptics—Intelligent Pluggable Optics test application was designed as the first tool that should be used to assess any transceiver being installed in a network element deployed in the field or lab environment, and serves to validate proper operation of the optical device. The iOptics test should be run in the following circumstances:
› Prior to installation of a pluggable in a network element
› Before the pluggable is used for a test
› During troubleshooting activities (to con rm failure in suspicious devices)
The test uses a physical ber loopback to validate the device signal continuity, integrity and excessive skew generation. Appropriate signal attenuation should be used to simulate network condition and protect the optical device.
OpticalRFTM is an easy-to-use solution that quickly identifies issues such as external RF
interference, internal PIM and external PIM. Supported on the compact and powerful FTB-1 Pro platform, OpticalRFTM provides access to the RF signals through the digital CPRI link available
at the BBU site (at the bottom of the tower or at the BBU hotel located kilometers away) – therefore eliminating unnecessary truck rolls and tower climbs.
CPRI rate option from 2 to 7 (1.2 Gbit/s to 9.8 Gbit/s)
Hardware-ready for CPRI rate option 9 (12.1 Gbit/s)
Capture/replay RF spectrum with IQ recording capability
Many RF spectrum options including waterfall, persistence, RBW, VBW, Min./Max./Avg. hold, etc…
Remote connection and control capabilities allows multiple users to troubleshoot from any smart device or laptop
Test solution supported on: FTB-870v2, FTB-880v2, FTB-870Q, FTB-880Q, FTB-720Gv2, FTB-730Gv2 and FTB-890NGE
FIELD TEST WORKFLOW AUTOMATION SOLUTION
TestFlow efficiently and accurately orchestrates the flow of information throughout critical testing phases during the deployment of FTTA, DAS and FTTH networks. In short, it ensures compliance to test process and design thresholds, reduces times of installation and troubleshooting, and accelerates time-to-revenue.
Get more business, do less admin
Network transformations are driving fiber deeper everywhere. This means that good enough testing is no longer good enough – inefficient, error-prone manual processes will take their toll on revenues. Did you know that admin and reporting tasks can take up half of the time of technicians on a field job? On the backend, processing high volumes of test results also ties up a lot of management time. With more to do in less time, reviewing results is often what is ditched first. When spot-checking becomes the only option, it is vital that you can trust your results, your technicians and contractors.
With TestFlow, complete jobs that would normally take you weeks in minutes.
EXFO Connect completely redefines integrated testing with its cloud-hosted solution. Equipped with a powerful database and application technologies, EXFO Connect provides an automated, secure environment that links together your EXFO test instruments and centralizes captured data across your organization.

What it does, how it works
iOLM is an innovative OTDR-based application that uses multipulse acquisitions and advanced algorithms to deliver information on every element in the link with the following advantages:
Provides one-touch, automatic analysis and clear link view display
Minimizes training and avoids misconfiguration via automatic parameter settings and clear go/no-go results
Turns complex OTDR information into simple and accurate analysis via Link-Aware™ technology
Identifies each event on the network and obtains straightforward fiber link status via Optical Link View
Provides prompt diagnosis enabling network issues to be fixed quickly and efficiently
Generates OTDR trace files (.sor)
Dynamic multipulse acquisition
Adjusts test parameters dynamically for ANY link under test using a mix of short, medium and long pulses.
Intelligent trace analysis
Based on the multiple acquisitions and with the help of advanced algorithms, iOLM can detect more events with maximum resolution.
All results in a single view
Results are displayed in an icon-based fiber-link view to quickly assess an event's pass/fail status per standard selected, removing risk of misinterpretation.
Delivers an analysis of failed events and suggests solutions; guides the technicians in fixing the fault quickly and successfully.
