True Bi-directional fiber certification for T-BERD/MTS-2000 V2 and -4000 V2
True bi-directional fiber certification solutions to improve fiber technician efficiency, driving operational excellence with FiberComplete PRO (formerly TestPRO).

TrueBIDIR software option adds real time on-board bi-directional OTDR result analysis (patented)

  • Immediate result allows you to perform corrective actions while you are still on site, reducing future site revisits.
  • Improves event location and measurement accuracy.
  • Provides greater detail by finding events hidden by uni-directional OTDR testing.
  • Gives ‘true’ event loss to immediately assess ‘gainers’ and false negative events.
  • No additional post processing effort required.

Data exchange via instrument test port and fiber under test (patent pending)

  • Synchronize instruments to eliminate test configuration errors and reduce instrument setup time.
  • Eliminate file transfer time and effort with automatic retrieval of test results from remote/far-end instrument.
  • No additional communications media required (WiFi connection, Smartphone tethering, USB, etc.).

Avoid site revisits and retests which lead to poor KPI with auto file naming and storage to guarantee correct results pairing for valid bi-directional analysis.

Reduce post processing effort with on-board (.pdf) report generation.

Remove time, complexity and cost when certifying multi-fiber (MPO) cables, automatic sequence of 12 x FiberComplete (IL, ORL & OTDR) measurements including auto-detection of cable polarity type and cable mapping.

Test Process Automation
Management of FiberComplete workflow into StrataSync, Mobile Tech App and Job Manager.

  • Deliver consistent test processes and compliance to methods and procedures.
  • Deploy and assign pre-defined, customized test setups and tasks for multiple network topologies, removing burden on the techs to make test config changes in field.
  • Enhanced StrataSync KPI analytics with generation of .json results file for FiberComplete PRO tests.

DWDM OTDR – 4100 Series
Added support for 25GHz channel grid.

FTTH SmartLink Mapper (FTTH-SLM)
Support for more complex PON network architectures with 3 splitter clusters/cascades.
