Optimized for the datacenter
Driven by server virtualization and multi-gigabit links between servers,
networks and storage, the datacenter architecture employs more patch
cords and dense topology connectors, rendering carrier-class OTDRs
with long dead-zones ineffective. OptiFiber Pro not only makes fiber
deployment in datacenters possible, but provides the highest level of
accuracy for quick problem resolution.
Advantages:
• Ultra-short event and attenuation dead-zones precisely locates
events and faults on fiber links
• Datacenter OTDR™ mode automatically sets the configuration to
quickly test datacenter fiber
• The EventMap feature depicts fiber events in a way that requires
no trace analysis expertise
LinkWare management software
Key features
Extremely short event and attenuation dead zone
The OptiFiber Pro leverages the most sophisticated optical technology to provide the shortest event
dead zone (0.5 m typical for MM) and attenuation dead zone (2.2 m typical for MM and 3.6 m
typical for SM) of any OTDR. This technological advancement allows OptiFiber Pro to detect and
measure closely spaced faults where no other OTDR can in today’s connector-rich datacenter and
storage area environments.
Two second trace per wavelength
Another breakthrough with OptiFiber Pro is the data acquisition speed. While in Quick Test mode,
a complete set of data is acquired in as little as two seconds per wavelength. OptiFiber Pro then
analyzes the data and displays it as an EventMap event, Table or Trace. The end result is less time
spent testing and more time performing other tasks.
DataCenter OTDR™ mode
Extremely short event and attenuation dead zone
With a simple one-touch selection, users enter DataCenter OTDR mode – without setup time for fine
tuning as needed in legacy OTDRs. DataCenter OTDR mode automatically detects OTDR parameters –
end-detection algorithms, pulse widths, etc – without getting confused by the short links or
number of connectors.
Graphical EventMap™ view
To eliminate the learning curve associated with reading an OTDR trace, OptiFiber Pro’s advance
logic automatically interprets the information to create a detailed and graphical map of events that
includes connectors, splices and anomalies. To accommodate different preferences, users can easily
switch between the EventMap, the Event Table and the Trace for test details. Any faulty events will
be highlighted with RED icons to facilitate quick troubleshooting.

Key features (continued)
Dynamic project and user profile management
OptiFiber Pro enhances job efficiency by allowing the workflow planner to create and manage
operator and job profiles per project – defined jobs or sets of cable IDs can be assigned to specific
operators. The progress and status of each project can also be easily monitored.
On-screen help – corrective action
On-screen “help” suggests corrective action(s) for resolving fiber problems during each testing step.
The “help” offered is context sensitive which allows users to quickly pinpoint possible resolutions.
An easy-to-read, gray icon in the bottom, left-hand corner shows detailed corrective action
recommendations.
FiberInspector™ probe
OptiFiber Pro’s video inspection system examines patch cords and patch panel bulkheads to avoid
the number one cause of fiber link failure – contamination. Significant time is saved because the
Dynamic project and user profile management
probe is inserted directly into the patch panel’s bulkhead to examine installed fiber terminations
without disassembling the patch panel. Technicians assign a pass or fail grade to the fiber, append a
comment and save it for use in certification reports.
