MaxTester 700 Series: Cost-Optimized, Yet Comprehensive OTDRs

The MaxTester 700 series comprises small, lightweight, dedicated portable OTDRs offering a large screen for easy manipulations. These affordable units integrate EXFO’s renowned OTDR performance and value-added features in a basic solution that reflects today’s needs. The MaxTester series comes in two models: the MaxTester 710 (last mile and access point-to-point OTDR) and the MaxTester 730 (metro and FTTH PON/MDU OTDR).

The MaxTester 710 is perfect for point-to-point last mile testing of passive optical networks (PON) within FTTx architectures. It is ideal for testing short fibers, e.g., inside a CO environment or in a fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA) network.

The MaxTester 730 is designed for end-to-end testing through up to 1x128 splitters in a PON environment. The 1625 nm out-of-band live testing port allows for efficient troubleshooting. Metro point-to-point testing also makes it possible to test over 80 km of fiber, depending on the network topology.

No.1 cause of network failures is contaminated connectors. If a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, then fiber networks are only as strong as their weakest connector. It is therefore critical to ensure that they are free of contamination and working properly.

This poster provides an overview of the different elements involved in connector inspection and presents the industry’s best practices.
