Product is easy-to-use, compact and portable, fills an existing gap in the market by eliminating the need for multiple instruments and seamlessly isolating problems for quick resolution. The integration of channel checker and OTDR capabilities on a single port means less unnecessary manipulation of the optical fiber and improved field efficiency. Instead of the ‘trial and error’ process that previously relied on separate, less proficient devices which increased the chance of disabling nodes, product ensures faster mean-time-to-repair and accelerates service turn-up and time to revenue.
