Beyond the testing itself, our customers can manage all types of test reports for a project seamlessly using our TestDataPro report management software which now also supports OTDR test reporting.”
The OTDR test adapters are available in new product kit offerings, and for existing customers, these adapters can be purchased as a standalone adapter that can be added to any TestPro or Network Service Assistant. A complementary firmware update for the test platform is required and can be downloaded through MyAccount section of the company’s web site.
