Are you up for a challenge?  

Stop by booth #705 at BICSI Winter to take part in EXFO’s Fiber Connector Certification Challenge. 

What’s the challenge? To inspect and certify 3 MPO connectors using the FIP-500, a fully automated single- and multi-fiber inspection scope. All participants enter a draw for a chance to win a FIP-500! 

The challenge is open to all—from beginners to seasoned technicians. Come experience the thrill of the challenge! 

Ensuring uptime and performance

Data centers are the world’s most demanding technological environments, serving as the epicenters of interconnectivity for global communications. It is imperative to ensure that every fiber-optic connection within or between data centers, from MPO links to the latest 400G connections, is running reliably.

Your testing needs covered from inspection through MPO certification to 400G:

  • MPO-12 power meter and light source combination, the PXM/LXM is a fully featured MPO optical loss test set (OLTS) delivering faster-than-ever, reliable MPO testing.
  • Duplex, single- and multi-fiber connector inspection scope, the FIP-500 delivers the industry’s fastest inspection time and most reliable results. Self-contained and fully automated, the scope enables technicians to test all day without having to recharge batteries.
  • The FTBx-88480 is modular, dual-port 400G tester that allows technicians to test different rates (1G to 400G), interfaces and transceiver types—all with a single, compact, multiservice tester built with 112G electrical lanes.

Transceivers and AOC cables

Faulty transceivers or AOC cables are among the most common—and serious—issues in data center networks, and yet they are not easy to identify.

EXFO’s iOptics enables technicians in data centers to quickly validate transceivers and AOC cables onsite. iOptics generates a test report that technicians can use to show which elements are failing to transceiver or cable vendors.

Panel discussion: Tales from the field: Top 5 mistakes we see and how to avoid them

With increasing data rates and faster speeds, ensuring proper installation and testing becomes critical. In this panel discussion, Cole Bondy from EXFO, alongside other seasoned presenters, will share insights from their experiences spanning the good, the bad, and the ugly. Errors—whether they are overlooked, forgotten, or simply unknown—can jeopardize not just timelines and budgets but also the enduring reliability of vital systems. This panel aims to spotlight these potential pitfalls and provide proper methodologies to steer clear of them.

Date/time: Jan. 31 - 1pm

Cabling Skills Challenge

Join us at the Cabling Skills Challenge to see our test tools in action and meet our experts. EXFO is a proud sponsor of the Challenge that supports excellence in the ICT sector.

Become an EXFO-certified contractor

The EXFO-certified contractor (ECC) program was designed to train contractors across the USA on key technical aspects of fiber-optic networks. It also covers the use of EXFO solutions in enabling faster, more confident network transformations.

Upon successful completion of the program, BICSI will recognize this course for 5 BICSI Continuing Education Credits (CECs).

Visit us at BICSI Winter and learn more about ECC courses.
