Whenever problems arise in whichever type of fiber network deployed—FTTx, central offices, private networks, data centers, Fronthaul/backhaul etc.—fiber connectors are the first critical elements to validate. Thanks to it’s fully automated test sequence, compatibility to AndroidTM and iOS devices and freedom of use, the FIP-435B allows everyone working on your network—regardless of background or skill level—to be quipped to perform first level troubleshooting tasks and address this most common source of problems.

With the automated multifiber inspection tip, inspect multifiber MPO connectors in dense panels, reach recessed connectors and perform pass/fail assessments quickly and easily.



The FIP-435B wireless probe is the ideal inspection solution for Fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA) and Remote-Radio-Head (RRH) applications where tower climbers have a copper or RF background, thus are often new to fiber testing and also work in an environment where it’s difficult to carry bulky equipment up the towers. The FIP-435B helps reduce the number of climbs required and streamlines the work needed at the top of the tower.

  • Fully automated test process helps close the technology gap
  • Auto-focus and analysis protects against misinterpretation and prevents the risk of reporting false positive results
  • LED pass/fail indicator provides an immediate analysis result without having to look back to the smart device screen, allowing one-hand operation and easier manipulation

As some telecom operators have already made the switch to smart devices for their field crews—or will soon—the FIP-425/435B, with Android™ and iOS compatibility, ensures compliance with current operator’s processes and enables users to benefit from smart device connectivity (3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, etc.) directly in the field.

  • Sync results and data with operator’s database
  • Compliance with operator process and requirements
    for workflow integration and optimization
