"Powered by multiple patent-pending technologies, Optical Xplorer marks a turning point in the world of fiber testing," said Stephen Bull, EXFO's vice president, Research and Development. "And it's the kind of innovation that only EXFO, backed by unmatched fiber optic testing expertise, could invent, define and deliver."

"Too often, frontline technicians are equipped with test tools that are a compromise between cost, complexity and functionality," said Stéphane Chabot, EXFO's vice president, Test and Measurement. "With our customers' challenges in mind, we developed a revolutionary new fiber testing solution that's easy to use - tailor-made for frontline field technicians, no matter their level of expertise. Optical Xplorer will help operators and contractors accelerate ROI, improve first-time-right metrics and increase customer satisfaction by equipping their technicians with a purpose-built tool and leaner methods of procedure."

Features include:

  • Lifetime calibration and field replaceable connectors
  • The Fault Xplorer feature self-launches during the optical link verification process, automatically exploring only those links suspected as faulty.
