The embedded OTDR is a compact device with simple interfaces, but powered by complex digital processing to generate and Content Dam Lw Online Articles 2017 03 Ivi Embedded Otdranalyze data in real time. System vendors can now monitor data on fiber plant quality both at startup and as events occur to ensure that decision making is based on optimum information when and where it is needed.

Judge's comment: "OTDR is a valuable function, and this module is indeed unique in the industry and should enable wider adoption of embedded system monitoring."
