Optimizing OTDR settings to reduce the need for repeat testing

Kevin Peres

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. 

This educational webinar will cover tips and techniques to improve your OTDR testing.

Join speaker Kevin Peres as he shares tips that will give you a better understanding of how to optimize OTDR settings such as pulse width and averaging time.

We will go over common issues (e.g., misconfiguration, faulty launch cables and dirty connectors) and how to quickly identify and resolve these issues.

Key takeaways:

  • Determining the best range, pulse width and duration for your test application
  • Optimizing setup for troubleshooting damage versus high-count fiber testing
  • Validating results before you leave the job site
  • File-naming and -saving conventions to improve close-out package workflow
