It offers a brand new testing approach powered by multiple pending patents. Optical Xplorer determines overall link quality and tracks potential faults, this in turn helps to boost work efficiency and quality for frontline techs. Unlike traditional instruments in their toolbox, Optical Xplorer won’t leave field technicians blind to faults. Instead,Optical Xplorer introduces new capabilities that break boundaries to redefine the role of field technicians. Each technician gets more autonomy to solve issues, enabling a leaner troubleshooting process that doesn’t require several technicians with various skills. Optical Xplorer allows a fundamental shift in work organisation—a new and better way to keep pace with the high volume of deployments and maintenance activities ahead. INTELLIGENTLY EXPLORE FAULTS WHEN VERIFYING LINKS While displaying insertion loss (IL), optical return loss (ORL) as well as fibre length under a few seconds and in one single-ended process, Optical Xplorer also looks for potential faults. It won’t waste precious time on good links, but if a fault is suspected, Optical Xplorer will automatically explore further and diagnose the fault, if applicable.EXFO’s patented Fault Xplorer™ technology requires no additional steps or expertise to identify and locate common causes of failure (fibre breaks, macro-bends, bad splices or faulty connectors), allowing technicians to fix problems on-the-go. Putting this new device in the hands of all technicians means faster installation and activation plus quicker mean time to repair (MTTR)—both with increased quality. Fully leverage the presence of fibre professionals on the field, while eliminating the cost and delays associated with dispatching experts and truck rolls. Once a link is verified with Optical Xplorer, a frontline technician can leave a site assured that everything concerning optical links is ready for seamless acceptance,activation or service recovery. Combined with power checking and light source capabilities in a rugged and compact form factor, Optical Xplorer is an intuitive field companion that up-skills any field technician.
