Testing high counts of optical short links in data centers


QUEBEC CITY, CANADA, January 23, 2017 — EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFOTSX: EXF) today announced that its newly released feature, Fast Short Link, is able to characterize high counts of optical short links five times faster than what was possible so far in the industry. Fast Short Link provides link characterization including accurate link loss, length and high-level link mapping, all under 10 seconds per fiber. Watch it in action here.

Fast Short Link is a new feature of EXFO’s industry-leading iOLM software driving its line of OTDRs to optimal performance through automation and intelligent diagnostics. Fast Short Link is designed for applications such as data centers, FTTA, Enterprise LAN/WAN and for any other high count of short links.

“Creating smart solutions that help our clients reduce their operating expenses and maximize their workforce efficiency is always on top of our mind," said Stéphane Chabot, EXFO’s Vice-President, Test and Measurement. “Fast Short Link reduces testing time and is perfectly suited for fiber installers and contractors. It shows the depth and maturity of our iOLM application, which has revolutionized OTDR testing through test orchestration and analytics.”
