Maintaining a reliable optical network is hard work, but vitally important for ensuring the best performance and service to end users. For many service providers, both time and qualified staffing resources for properly maintaining the network are often limited, so utilizing devices that result in greater efficiency can make a significant and positive impact on the bottom line.
Optimize Laser Transmitter Performance
Optical Modulation Index (OMI) is a key variable in determining the optimal point at which a laser will provide the best performance. The FOS 1000A is the only instrument available that automatically measures OMI of a laser, allowing for optimization in just a matter of minutes.

Monitor Important Fiber Routes
To ensure the integrity of an optical network, having the ability to monitor the physical fibers in the field is important, as issues like breaks, intrusion attempts, or degrading connections can affect the flow of important data. By using a remote fiber testing system (RFTS) like the FM100, monitoring network both dark and lit fibers across the network can be accomplished cost-effectively with minimal resources.
