New Fluke Networks' handheld tester for singlemode fibre can test links up to 24 kilometres

By Michelle Taylor

Fluke Networks has announced Fiber OneShotâ„¢ PRO, a one-button troubleshooter for singlemode fiber networks, which tests access network links up to 24 kilometres, farther than any other fiber troubleshooter in its class*, and increases telecom technician productivity by 30 per cent.**

Wayne Allen, program manager, Fluke Networks, said, 'Fluke Networks' customers are focused on reducing costs and improving the efficiency of their technicians. Fiber OneShot PRO makes it possible for a technician with very little training to find the most common faults impacting fibre network performance, from detecting bad splices and breaks to finding severe macro and microbends.

'Fiber OneShot PRO is designed to be that 'first response' tool for all singlemode fibre network applications worldwide.

Fiber OneShot PRO complements fibre network troubleshooting tools currently in the market by making sure there are now products at all ends of the spectrum, from Visual Fault Locators (VFL) to locate high-loss faults over shorter distances, as well as singlemode and multimode Optical Domain Reflectometers (OTDRs) for deeper, more robust network analysis and comprehensive fibre certification.

A great first-responder fibre diagnostic tool, the Fiber OneShot PRO helps telecoms respond to customers' needs much more quickly.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
