Traditional OTDR only can display loss and event list of fibre link. Event types and link topology requires an experienced engineer to analyse manually. However, rapid growth of FTTH deployment demand definitely increases engineer’s workload and operator’s labour cost. iOTA function of OPWILL provides more comprehensive analysis of fibre link, assists engineer to deploy, operate, and maintain optical fibre network more easily.
iOTA Test Principles
iOTA intelligently combines different pulse widths, only needs one time and one button can get loss and return loss of fibre and splitter. Multiple pulse acquisition and algorithm can deliver more detail information of every element of the fibre link.
