VIAVI Introduces the ability to intuitively eliminate OTDR complexities and ensure network quality

Enterprise-SLM offers a fast and easy-to-use interface ideally suited for Advanced/Tier 2 Fiber Certification for Enterprise and Datacenters

February 20, 2017 — The Enterprise-SLM builds on industry-leading VIAVI expertise in OTDR technology, providing features and capabilities to technicians enabling correct and timely testing. Meeting tight network specifications with a repeatable and precise OTDR that can perform all necessary Advanced/Tier 2 tests in Enterprise and Datacenter environments, while providing a tailored and user-friendly interface, the Enterprise-SLM efficiently removes complexity from OTDR testing.

"With extremely strict loss budgets and rapid growth of MPO architectures, Enterprise and Datacenter technicians are driven to use OTDRs to provide the test details they need, but are often intimidated by complexities associated with using and understanding them," says Charlene Roux, Product Line Manager for VIAVI OTDRs. "Our SLM applications have eliminated these barriers for numerous fiber technicians in FTTH, FTTA, and Cable markets. We are now expanding this same benefit to Enterprise and Datacenter technicians, giving them numerous capabilities with fast and intuitive operation."

Features include:

  • Self-setting OTDR with pre-defined SmartConfig™
  • Icon-based map view of the link and events (SLM)
  • Pass/fail alarm criteria per the TIA/IEC standards
  • Project management capability to easily control and document all the tested fiber
  • Management of an optical switch to test MPO cable
  • Automatic PDF report generation
  • Embedded Encircled Flux compliance

With Enterprise-SLM, technicians will experience intuitive Tier 2 fiber testing, an easy 3-step operation via the application's streamlined user interface that provides swift test result analysis. The new VIAVI Enterprise-SLM is the essential Tier 2 application for your Enterprise and Datacenter needs.

Use Case:
Technicians installing fiber into a native MPO network to ensure each passive element (connectors, cassettes, etc.) are properly installed and providing certification of the strict performance requirements.

IT/Network technicians troubleshooting networks to quickly find specific locations of damage to the link in a simplex or MPO fiber cable.
