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.
The fiber-optic deployments geared toward current and future needs can often be challenging for operators, contractors and installers. And, with increased capability comes increased complexity in verifying the performance of these systems, which requires the use of advanced tools such as OTDRs.
Consider the level of complexity involved in analyzing multiple OTDR traces. Due to complicated settings and parameters, performing a complete fiber-link characterization with an OTDR can be challenging. This presentation demonstrates how network operators and installers can quickly and easily accomplish this task using a new link characterization approach involving self-managed parameters and intelligent automation.
