The OTU-8000 Optical Test Unit combines optical time-domain reflectometry (OTDR) and optical-switch technology to provide continuous OTDR monitoring of multiple fibers anywhere in the network.

The OTU-8000 platform is fully modular allowing for the use of many wavelengths and dynamic ranges in order to optimize fiber monitoring for a changing network.

OTU-8000 Benefits:

  • Ensure continuously good service at construction, service activation and beyond
  • Anticipate service disruptions by detecting fiber degradation before it affects service.
  • Reduce MTTR by locating fiber optic faults in minutes instead of hours
  • Reduce operational costs by eliminating multiple erroneous dispatches
  • Protect investments by monitoring long-term fiber performance
  • Reduce construction costs by accelerating test processes and empowering test staff
  • Protect network integrity and security by detecting and locating fiber intrusion
  • Proactively protect infrastructure with the DTS and DTSS modules to detect strain and temperature changes that indicate risks to infrastructure items such as pipelines.

OTU-8000 Key Features:

  • Switch scalability up to 1080 ports
  • Web-browser access
  • Advanced fault location
  • E-mail and SMS notifications
  • Scalable and modular in up to 2RU
  • Dual power feeds
  • Solid-state disk
  • Low power consumption
