Applications Engineer, Advanced Technologies and Solutions
Kevin has been with EXFO for 18 years and has been involved in the telecom industry for 29 years. Starting in excavation as a laborer, Kevin traded in his shovel for a backhoe laying cable across the US. He later worked for a Tier 1 service provider as a splicer and tester, working on new installs and disaster recovery. Kevin became an Operations technician, turning up and maintaining DS1 to 10G systems. Leveraging this field experience, Kevin delivers a unique perspective which shows in his educational approach when delivering expert content through webinars or seminars.
One problem with OTDRs is that you sacrifice resolution to test for distance. In other words, if you can see a splice on an event at 30 miles, there’s a very good chance that you won’t be seeing anything at 30 feet, and vice versa.
EXFO’s intelligent Optical Link Mapper (iOLM) is an OTDR-based application that gets around these limitations by performing multiple acquisitions using multiple pulse widths, and reports back results in an easy-to-understand format.
