Important Factors for Choosing an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR)


The days of the dedicated fiber technician are over. In an effort to keep pace with demand, every technician is expected to test fiber.

The challenges these technicians face can be intimidating. Strict loss budgets leave little room for mistakes and new standards have been developed to ensure proper deployment, but most technicians don’t understand the best practices required when handling fiber. This is where VIAVI Solutions can help.
