Netwerk betrouwbaarheid en beschikbaarheid van diensten zijn cruciaal om te voldoen aan de eisen en verwachtingen van de eindgebruiker van de provider.

De oplevering van het optische netwerk en het onderhoud van de operationele infrastructuur vereisen een snelle en nauwkeurige analyse van eventuele afwijkingen. 

Zo wordt een snel herstel van de dienstverlening mogelijk gemaakt en worden eventuele commerciële risico’s voor de bedrijfsvoering van de aanbieder en de gebruiker tot een absoluut minimum beperkt.

De kosteneffectieve mini-OTDR voor glasvezel netwerken voor FTTx-, PON en directe verbindingen is de VeEX FX150+.

Deze standaard OTDR- of PON-geoptimaliseerde OTDR biedt metingen met tot 256.000 datapunten en een resolutie van 3cm en levert superieure meetnauwkeurigheid voor installatie, onderhoud en probleemoplossing van FTTx-, mobiele FrontHaul/BackHaul- en Metro-glasvezelnetwerken.

De compacte, lichtgewicht testset kan worden aangevuld / geïntegreerd met een vermogensmeter, lichtbron, vezelinspectiesonde en VFL-testopties, die een uitzonderlijke veelzijdigheid aan de unit toevoegen.


Network reliability and service availability is key in today’s age in order to meet the end user’s requirements and expectations from the provider.
Delivery of the initial optical network and servicing the operational infrastructure requires fast and accurate analysis of anomalies. So enabling a quick recovery of the services and limit any commercial risk to the provider’s and user’s business to an absolute minimum.

The cost-effective mini OTDR for FTTx and Metro Fiber Networks is the VeEX FX150+.
This standard OTDR or PON optimized OTDR with up to 256,000 data points and 3 cm resolution, offers superior measurement accuracy for installation, maintenance and troubleshooting of FTTx, Mobile FrontHaul/BackHaul and Metro fiber networks. 
The compact, lightweight test set can be incorporated with power meter, light source, fiber inspection probe and VFL test options which add exceptional versatility to the unit.
