Fiber Optic Splicing and Testing App

When a recently installed optical cabling system malfunctions, it is crucial to have the original baseline measurements ready to compare with current test readings. Having the baseline information will support quick evaluation and efficient troubleshooting of the system so that appropriate measures can be taken to fix the issue. Use this Fiber Optic Splicing and Testing app to periodically gather measurements of cable lengths, OTDR readings, photographs of visible defects in cables, and more. Use this quick and easy app that is fully customizable to fit the specific needs of your cable testing assignment.
