Managing your cable and fiber network is a full-time concern. By running remote test units (RTUs) deployed at key locations across the network, EXFO’s NQMSfiber Network Quality Monitoring System is the ideal monitoring solution.
Featuring sophisticated functions such as alarm management and reporting, trouble-ticket handling and complete network status schematic viewing, the NQMSfiber enables you to integrate all your network operation and maintenance activities into your existing network management systems. NQMSfiber also provide network documentation based on GIS for mapping of the as-built and fault-on-map feature.
You are considering purchasing a monitoring system but your current needs do not require a fully-integrated server-based solution? EXFO’s Fiber Guardian Stand-Alone Remote OTDR Unit is the perfect entry point to start monitoring at your own pace. Plus, it allows you to migrate seamlessly to a complete monitoring solution without changing test units whenever you are ready.
The NQMSfiber RTUs support EXFO’s FTB-7000 OTDR series D and E modules, which provide high-resolution and accurate loss measurements in short and long fiber environments respectively. All RTUs have one-meter resolution scans for resolving closely-spaced events such as connectors or mechanical splices in an access site.
Get the most out of your system, thanks to EXFO’s innovative RFTS function called Learning, which automatically establishes and optimizes fault-detection thresholds across full dynamic range. By setting a default set of target thresholds and learning schedule, long optimization hours will be history.
Insert a stable or reproducible reflecting element and use it as a demarcation point. The reference level of this point can then be monitored at a much faster rate than the fiber backscatter level. This function also provides a wider monitoring range than a standard Rayleigh backscattering signal—perfect for ultra-long-haul networks where fiber ends may not be seen.
The combined benefits of best-in-class OTDRs, learning function and peak-level monitoring provide powerful, fast and meaningful monitoring and proactive maintenance functions. Choose faster scans and let the system do the work for you—there is no need for additional reference traces or for long and complicated configuration sessions.
