Key Features

  • Smaller, denser and scalable hardware: combine modular and external switch (local or remote) to OTDR and scale up to 1024 ports per test head in as little as 3U rack height
  • Scalable EMS supporting over 1,000 remote test units in a single clustered instance
  • Fast & accurate: guaranteed HRD testing performance – 5 sec on typical PONs with 60cm HRD separation using high-end OTDR modules powered by market-leading iOLM application
  • Software architecture enabling automated & integrated workflow (e.g., iOLM, FMS, API)
  • Most secure solution: IOT type RTU, mutual SSL authentication Cloud native architecture for integration in private and public clouds
  • MPO connectors: 16x fewer connectors for faster handling and scalability aligned with OLT card port counts.

Applications

  • Versatile solution throughout network lifecycle, from build to monitor, and across network topologies (e.g., PON, P2P, distributed access)
  • End-to-end continuity and loss verification in PONs
  • Massive FTTx network auditing
  • Automated troubleshooting of fiber-related issues
  • Preventive tracking of degradations
  • Restore and repair quality assurance

Introduction

Part of EXFO’s solution for remote fiber testing and monitoring (RFTM), the RTU-2 is a test unit that is remotely controlled via EXFO’s central fiber monitoring system (FMS). It is a modular unit, hence allowing for flexibility and scalability. OTDR modules and optical switches enable centralized fiber characterization through patented OTDR/iOLM technology. Optical link management can be scaled up to 1024 ports with external optical switches (local or remote).

In-service testing and monitoring of P2P and PONs is possible thanks to in-service OTDR port at 1650 nm coupled with a traffic multiplexer (test access module coupler).

Finally, measure PON end-to-end fiber attenuation at 1650 nm with a traceable test method using a high-reflectance demarcation filter.

Link-AwareTM technology: simplify OTDR tests

Simplify and optimize the test run. In one click, the test unit automatically performs link recognition, sets the optimal parameters and launches multiple acquisitions. It then consolidates the results for every link event, section and splitter (if any). The iOLM software removes front-end events, like optical switches, that are part of the test setup to only keep and report the relevant part of the test.

The unit provides accurate data such as position, loss and reflectance on all elements and displays an easy-to-read result for any NOC or field technicians. The smart iOLM software yields N single OTDR traces that can be verified and compared with their respective baseline, allowing second and third-tier support to analyze further into these acquisitions.

Three key advantages of the OTDR-iOLM
  1. No calibration needed for end-to-end loss measurements
  2. Accuracy of single-ended end to end loss similar to light source - power meter technique
  3. Long-term stability of the end-to-end (to HDRs) measurement in monitoring
