Fluke Networks’ New OptiFiber Pro OTDR Redefines Enterprise Fiber Testing

Fluke Networks today announced the OptiFiber™ Pro OTDR, the first handheld OTDR (optical time-domain reflectometer) built from the ground up for enterprise fiber testing. Performance breakthroughs of the OptiFiber Pro OTDR allow users to reduce costs associated with premise fiber testing, while enhancing productivity and improving network reliability.

The OptiFiber Pro OTDR creates a new standard for usability with a smartphone interface that supports gesture-based commands, and technology enhancements that simplify testing in datacenter environments.

“Enterprise fiber use is growing at 57 percent a year,* which increases the frequency and importance of fiber testing necessary to minimize issues that can be devastating to network operations,” said Jason Wilbur, vice president of datacom cabling and installation tools at Fluke Networks. “Our new OptiFiber PRO is aimed squarely at the challenges our enterprise customers are facing today. The tester’s new smartphone interface dramatically reduces the learning curve associated with using an OTDR, and the simplified Datacenter Mode will help industry technicians immediately solve problems in mission critical datacenter environments.”
