EXFO Fibre Guardian
Scalable fiber-monitoring solutionFTTx Metro/Core Monitoring
› 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.
