New Fluke Networks’ handheld tester for singlemode fibre can test links up to 24 kilometres
June 20, 2011 – Fluke Networks has announced Fiber OneShot™ PRO, a one-button troubleshooter for singlemode fibre networks, which tests access network links up to 24 kilometres, farther than any other fibre troubleshooter in its class*, and increases telecom technician productivity by 30 per cent.**
Wayne Allen, program manager, Fluke Networks, said, “Fluke Networks’ customers are focused on reducing costs and improving the efficiency of their technicians. Fiber OneShot PRO makes it possible for a technician with very little training to find the most common faults impacting fibre network performance, from detecting bad splices and breaks to finding severe macro and microbends.
“Fiber OneShot PRO is designed to be that ‘first response’ tool for all singlemode fibre network applications worldwide.
Fiber OneShot PRO complements fibre network troubleshooting tools currently in the market by making sure there are now products at all ends of the spectrum, from Visual Fault Locators (VFL) to locate high-loss faults over shorter distances, as well as singlemode and multimode Optical Domain Reflectometers (OTDRs) for deeper, more robust network analysis and comprehensive fibre certification.
A great first-responder fibre diagnostic tool, the Fiber OneShot PRO helps telecoms respond to customers’ needs much more quickly.
