Evaluate the quality of fiber links in seconds.

An innovative, fast and simple-to-use fiber optic tester, Optical Explorer verifies optical links in seconds and automatically explores further when potential issues are suspected. It’s the first optical fiber multimeter (OFM)—an essential handheld tool for fiber optic technicians (it can be compared to multimeters used by electrical technicians). OFMs quickly measure multiple key optical parameters such as loss (dB), optical return loss (dB), length (meters) and power (dBm). They help technicians verify fiber optic link health and troubleshoot potential issues.

Empower frontline fiber technicians to do more, faster.

Optical Explorer is more than an improvement of existing fiber optic test equipment—it represents a groundbreaking new approach to fiber installation, turn-up and repair. The kind of innovation that only EXFO—backed by 30+ years of fiber optic testing expertise—can deliver.

Cut hidden costs to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO)

Hidden costs throughout a product’s life make up a massive, yet sometimes overlooked, part of TCO. And it includes more than just the initial purchase price.

Optical Explorer’s lifetime calibration, patent-pending click-out optical connector and field replaceable battery empower field techs to do more directly from the field, cutting costly downtime and logistics associated with factory-based updates, maintenance and repairs.

Search out potential faults, don't waste time on good links

During the optical link verification process, the Fault Explorer feature automatically explores only those links suspected as faulty—eliminating any doubts while saving testing time.

Within five seconds, Fault Explorer will display IL, ORL and length on good links while tracking suspicious events. Technicians get the chance to solve problems on the spot, without escalation.

Validate link quality in seconds, get a 1 to 5-star rating

Just because a link’s individual elements pass inspection, doesn’t guarantee that link was constructed according to industry best practices.

With the built-in EXFO Advisor feature, techs get the benefit of EXFO’s 30+ years of fiber expertise and sophisticated algorithms at the push of a button, assigning ratings to links based on industry best practices. It’s a qualitative assessment of fiber link health that looks at how efficiently and robustly a link is built.

Make it simpler.Make it simpler.

Make it simpler.

Boost your workforce output without increasing headcount

  • Simple-to-use test tool: intuitive design requires minimal training to use—perfect for frontline field techs no matter their experience level or testing background
  • Fix problems on the go: minimize the costs and delays associated with deploying level-2 expert support and additional truck rolls
  • Ultra-lean interface and no complex settings for ease of use and reduction in manual errors 

Do it better.

Upskill frontline techs plus unique 5-star rating scale, to boost work quality

  • EXFO Advisor validates link quality in seconds, assigning a 1-5 star rating according to industry best practices 
  • With power checking and light source capabilities combined in a rugged and compact form factor, Optical Explorer is a familiar, intuitive field companion that instantly upskills any field technician
  • Link Mapper improves pinpointing of faulty elements: locates all faults and detectable elements by reading their relative position instead of interpreting distance
Do it better.Do it better.
Do it faster.Do it faster.

Do it faster.

Speed up installation, service activation, mean time to repair and time to revenue with leaner MOPs for improved ROI and customer satisfaction

  • Get leaner methods of procedure: confirm link quality and/or identify faults in a simple, one-step quick test
  • Test insertion loss and ORL in a single-ended process, no need for tedious referencing
  • Reduce mean-time-to-repair (MTTR) by cutting down on troubleshooting and escalation tickets
  • Don’t lose time on good links. In 5 seconds, Fault Explorer confirms a pass (IL, ORL and length) on good links while tracking only suspicious events
  • Frontline technicians leave jobs assured of a smoother, faster service activation or recovery time.

Do more for less.

Bring down OPEX and CAPEX by minimizing cost of ownership without compromising quality

  • Lifetime calibration, patent-pending click-out optical connector and replaceable battery enable frontline field techs to perform unit repair/maintenance—no shipping logistics or downtime for factory servicing
  • Empowers large crews of frontline technicians to do more: reduces need for onsite fiber expert
  • Contractors close more jobs while maximizing ROI due to leaner MOPs and lower cost of ownership
Do more for less.Do more for less.
Get stronger networks.Get stronger networks.

Get stronger networks.

Take control of QoS and gain confidence in your fiber infrastructure ahead of its next evolution

  • Less service disruption and troubleshooting tickets as links are verified and fixed at installation and activation
  • Delivers visibility over the robustness of links in relation to the type of traffic carried
