VeEX, a global player in Telecom, CATV, Fibre and Broadband Access, has added a range of OTDR modules to the RXT, the company’s flagship modular multi-service platform.
The RXT-4100 and 4112 OTDR series modules feature several optical test functions, including a fully featured OTDR for legacy fibre systems and a CWDM OTDR for CWDM networks respectively. Optional features include a power meter, a light source and a visual fault locator.
“Adding Optical testing capabilities to the RXT modular platform was driven by huge customer demand around the world,” said Mike Venter, Vice President of Optical Product Marketing at VeEX. “Field Technicians and Engineers already using the versatile RXT platform for Ethernet and high speed Transport services needed a powerful OTDR module to measure and troubleshoot the cables which support so many of these fiber-centric technologies. Today’s multi-disciplined field service technicians require state-of-the-art optical performance in an intuitive tester that is ready to face any network situation,” he added.
The RXT OTDR works in tandem with Fiberizer Cloud, a unique online repository and new way of processing OTDR test data. Technicians can upload OTDR traces directly from the tester via wired or wireless connection, organize data in custom collections, compare traces with reference fibers, perform post analysis and generate professional PDF reports. This powerful innovation empowers technicians and engineers to process test data efficiently and accurately irrespective of test location.
The RXT OTDR modules will be on display at the OFC Fiber Exhibition and Conference (VeEX Booth # 530) in Los Angeles, California from March 24th to 26th.
