Automated and fumble-free
Automatically inspect multifiber connectors without the hassle of manipulating scanning knobs.
Right the first time
No repeats, no missed fibers, no confusion. View and validate all fibers on the first try.
Find dirty connectors—fast
Chances are that at least one of your multifiber connectors is dirty. Inspect quickly and easily using a tool specifically designed for accessing dense panels and minimizing inspection time. No more excuses for blind connections!
The FLS-140 is the easiest way to identify optical fibres from end to end and locate polished connector endfaces. Its red laser shines through most yellow-jacketed optical fibres to help you pinpoint breaks, bends, faulty connectors, splices and other causes of signal loss. It has a reach of up to 5 km.
The FLS-240 Pocket Pal Visual Fault Locator is a straightforward solution for identifying breaks, bends, faulty connectors or splices, as well as other causes of signal loss. It can detect faults over distances of up to 5 km.

One software does it all
FastReporter equips you with the right post-processing functionalities to overcome the challenges of analyzing fiber-optic test and measurement data, whatever the application. Designed for off-line or live analysis of field-acquired data, FastReporter has a highly intuitive interface for ease of use.
With a single software to manage data and generate reports for all your optical-layer test applications, you are on the right path towards high efficiency and productivity.
That’s not all. FastReporter is now included in EXFO’s TestFlow–an innovative cloud-based field test management solution. You can now benefit from faster job completion thanks to the automated diagnosis of measurements and batch results analysis.
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.
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.
› Truly scalable from one stand-alone unit to a centrally managed system, without the hassle of any upgrades
› Adaptive technology that sets the best possible fault detection thresholds while reducing false positives; requires no OTDR experience or previous knowledge of the fiber under test
› Add test ports without adding rack space
› System is compliant with NEBSTM for 24/7 permanent installations
› Fiber can be put on surveillance with just two clicks, upon commissioning or after repair
› System remote diagnosis and management, as found in server equipment (BMC)
› High OTDR performance throughout all operation ranges, as opposed to just the longest pulse width
Self-Learning, Plug-and-Play Unit
Fiber Guardian is a plug-and-play solution that is simple enough for beginners, yet powerful and flexible enough for experts. The unit does not require any additional infrastructure, i.e., no server or external PC—just a LAN/WAN connection and a web browser for remote access.
If you have limited knowledge of the fault-detection thresholds required for a new fiber, simply select the appropriate sensitivity level desired—fine, normal or coarse—and Fiber Guardian will take care of the rest. A diagnostic process with adaptive learning algorithms optimally determines where your selected level of fault-detection thresholds can and cannot be applied on the trace.
If you own a competing solution and are tired of it producing alarms for no reason, or annoyed by its lengthy and fully manual event-by- event threshold-setting process, Fiber Guardian is for you.
