How to find Fibre Faults like a Pro
Once a fibre run is completed the last thing you want is to find problems with a splice or a connector as it means you will need to hunt down the problem and repair it before submitting the trace. Even worse if you have to go back to an old job to find a problem. This is usually time consuming and costs you money. Watch the video for more information in regards to using the latest Smart Access Anywhere OTDR software from VIAVI Solutions and how this will speed up the time it takes to locate the fibre fault.


Eliminate your MTS-2000 and MTS-4000 OTDR's being set up incorrectly
The Smart OTDR function which comes as standard on the VIAVI MTS 2000 and MTS 4000 allows the user to set up the OTDR for NBN work by simply selecting the length of the fibre under test and selecting LFN or DFN. The config files are configured to the latest NBN Optical Testing Standard v9 1 Mar 2019. Watch the video for more information

This video will show you how to correctly set up your VIAVI OTDR to test through the Splitters.
