The OptiFiber Pro OTDR is the Tier 2 (extended) fiber certification solution and part of the Versiv™ Cabling Certification product family. The Versiv line also includes copper certification and OLTS modules. Versiv is designed around the revolutionary ProjX™management system and Taptive™ user interface. ProjX tracks jobs to ensure they're done correctly the first time, thus reducing rework. With the intuitive Taptive user interface, instrument set-up and operation are so simple, even operators with limited cabling skills can successfully test and troubleshoot a system. Analysis of measurement data and professional test reports are easy with the familiar LinkWare™ management software.
Designed for Enterprise Fiber
As enterprise networks and datacenter architectures evolve, IT infrastructure administrators demand better OTDR technology to maintain fiber network performance. Many OTDRs (Optical Time Domain Reflectometers) used for fiber troubleshooting are designed for carriers and contain cumbersome and complicated features that enterprise users don’t need. Few OTDRs are built with features and usability for enterprise network engineers, SAN designers and cable installers.
As enterprises consume more storage resources and adopt higher bandwidth (40G, 100G) datacenter architectures, the resilience of the cabling infrastructure becomes highly dependent upon maintenance tools to ensure fiber reliability. OptiFiber Pro is the industry’s first purpose-built OTDR that meets the unique challenges of an enterprise fiber infrastructure. With its simple Taptive user interface and powerful feature set, the OptiFiber Pro turns anyone into an efficient and expert premise fiber troubleshooter or installer.
- SmartLoop OTDR enables automated testing and analysis of two fibers in a single test, eliminating the need to travel to the far end of the connection to perform tests.
- Taptive user interface puts advanced data analysis and easy set-up and operation at the fingertips of of technicians of all skill levels.
- Compatible with Linkware™ Live. Linkware Live enables to easily track job progress, get real-time access to test results to quickly fix problems in the field, and easily transfer and consolidate test results from the tester to LinkWare™ PC Cable Test Management Software.

- Built-in Visual Fault Locator (VFL) easily identifies damaged fibers
- Full OTDR capability that certifies fiber performance based on industry standards or customer specifications
- Complaint with ISO and TIA standards
Unique Certification with Flexibility and Efficiency
An important aspect in maximizing an OTDR’s value is to properly plan its day-to-day usage. With ProjX management system, OptiFiber Pro allows a project manager to define each user’s role, settings and the associated tasks to be performed – transforming the OTDR into an all-in-one fiber testing tool complete with planning, inspection, certification and reporting.
- Powerful ProjX management system facilitates OTDR sharing with clear job assignment for each operator
- Easy monitoring of job progress with pass/fail results
- Built-in Visual Fault Locator (VFL) to facilitate troubleshooting
- On-screen report generation and upload to LinkWare™ application
- Integrated Wi-Fi allows you to easily upload results to LinkWare™ Live
Taptive User Interface
Most OTDRs are designed for a myriad of applications, causing the user interface to be difficult to navigate and interpret. OptiFiber Pro has the Taptive user interface which combines the latest “gesture-based” interface technology with a capacitive touchscreen to deliver the most innovative and user-friendly OTDR.
Optimized for the Datacenter
Driven by server virtualization and multi-gigabit links between servers, networks and storage, the datacenter architecture employs more patch cords and dense topology connectors, rendering carrier-class OTDRs with long dead-zones ineffective. OptiFiber Pro not only makes fiber deployment in datacenters possible, but provides the highest level of accuracy for quick problem resolution.
- Ultra-short event and attenuation dead-zones precisely locates events and faults on fiber links
- Datacenter OTDR™ mode automatically sets the configuration to quickly test datacenter fiber
- The EventMap feature depicts fiber events in a way that requires no trace analysis expertise
Extremely short event and attenuation dead zone
The OptiFiber Pro leverages the most sophisticated optical technology to provide the shortest event dead zone (0.5 m typical for MM) and attenuation dead zone (2.5 m typical for MM and 3.6 m typical for SM) of any OTDR. This technological advancement allows OptiFiber Pro to detect and measure closely spaced faults where no other OTDR can in today’s connector-rich datacenter and storage area network environments.
Two second trace per wavelength
Another breakthrough with OptiFiber Pro is the data acquisition speed. While in Quick Test mode, a complete set of data is acquired in as little as two seconds per wavelength. OptiFiber Pro then analyzes the data and displays it as an EventMap event, Table or Trace. The end result is less time spent testing and more time performing other tasks.
DataCenter OTDR™ Mode
With a simple one-touch selection, users enter DataCenter OTDR mode – without setup time for fine tuning as needed in legacy OTDRs. DataCenter OTDR mode automatically detects OTDR parameters – end-detection algorithms, pulse widths – without getting confused by the short links or number of connectors.
Graphical EventMap™ view
To eliminate the learning curve associated with reading an OTDR trace, OptiFiber Pro’s advance logic automatically interprets the information to create a detailed and graphical map of events that includes connectors, splices and anomalies. To accommodate different preferences, users can easily switch between the EventMap, the Event Table and the Trace for test details. Any faulty events will be highlighted with RED icons to facilitate quick troubleshooting.
On-screen “help” suggests corrective action(s) for resolving fiber problems during each testing step. The “help” offered is context sensitive which allows users to quickly pinpoint possible resolutions. An easy-to-read, gray icon in the bottom, left-hand corner shows detailed corrective action recommendations.
Dynamic project and user profile management with ProjX management system
OptiFiber Pro enhances job efficiency by allowing the project manager to create and manage operator and job profiles per project. Defined jobs or sets of cable IDs can be assigned to specific operators. The progress and status of each project can also be easily monitored.
SmartLoop OTDR enables automated testing and analysis of two fibers in a single test while meeting standard's requirements. This patent pending process automatically separates the two fibers for individual pass/fail analysis, display, and reporting. Not only does this cut the testing time by at least half, it also enables instant bi-directional averaged test results without moving the OTDR to the far end. SmartLoop meets the standard's requirements of leaving the launch and tail fibers in their initial locations during both bi-directional tests. SmartLoop OTDR further enhances the ease and speed of testing in environments where the far end is difficult of even dangerous to reach because the OTDR never has to be moved to the far end. In addition to getting the job done quicker, SmartLoop meets the standard's requirements of leaving the launch and tail fibers in their initial locations during both bi-directional tests.
Test it right and test it fast with SmartLoop – included for free in all OptiFiber Pro modules.
Fiber Endface Inspection and Certification
OptiFiber Pro incorporates the FiberInspector Pro video inspection system which enables you to quickly inspect and certify fiber end-faces inside ports or patch cords. It’s 1-second automated PASS/FAIL grading eliminates human subjectivity and enables anyone to become a fiber inspection expert. Results can be saved in the certification report along side OptiFiber Pro's OTDR results.
