EXFO Revamps Entire OTDR and iOLM Product Line

With 42 new and completely redesigned models, increased industry-leading specifications and extended performances to any networks, the number 1 OTDR elevates testing standards to an entirely new level

QUEBEC CITY, Jan. 26, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO) (TSX: EXF) today announced the introduction of the C-Series OTDR to provide the highest requirements for characterizing fiber optic cables and ensure first-time-right deployments. Since the quality of OTDRs has a direct impact on network efficiency, the new OTDR portfolio brings unprecedented quality of results, innovative features, and new configurations that suits every application. This new series caters to the growing and evolving commercial services needs of operators worldwide.

Thriving on years of OTDR innovation and after almost five years on the market, EXFO's iOLM application has surpassed the traditional OTDR test method and proven its superiority in automated fault finding as well as accuracy and repeatability in fiber characterization on any given network. Benefiting from these optical improvements and now available on practically any EXFO OTDRs, the iOLM keeps evolving with high added-value features, such as iMF, an automated MPO testing and iLOOP, a fast and automated loopback test method that tests two fibers at once. What's more, this new series continues to provide unmatched ease of use to maximize efficiency out in the field. Thanks to its advanced and intelligent algorithms, tailor-made acquisitions called Optimodes are now being offered to address specific customer needs and custom requests.

Hosted in the popular MaxTester tablet-inspired form factor as well as in the ever-evolving FTB-1V2 and FTB-2 platforms, this new OTDR portfolio provides powerful, fast and efficient solutions for everyday OTDR testing. With a complete Windows 8 OS that enables third-party integrated applications for communications, remote assistance, file storage and connectivity, your technicians will deploy faster and better fiber optic networks.

"With the introduction of the C-Series, EXFO's 7th generation of OTDRs, we bring unprecedented optical performances that increase the quality of the results you expect from your favorite OTDR," explained Stéphane Chabot, Vice-President, Physical Layer Test Division at EXFO. "Combined with the power of the new FTB Pro platforms and the latest innovations to the iOLM, we are delivering the best mix of intelligence, performance and automation in a completely recharged OTDR portfolio. EXFO keeps raising the traditional OTDR standards to the highest level ever seen in the market."
