EXFO Fibre Guardian stand-alone remote optical time-domain reflectometer
Fibre Guardian is a stand-alone OTDR remote test unit, designed to monitor critical fibres without the larger investment required for a client-server RFTS application.
The unit is suitable for situations which require fulfilment of stringent support-level agreements that require restoration time of less than a few hours or network/service availability of 99.99% or higher. It is also suitable for use when there is a need to measure and improve contractor efficiency throughout the restoration process or when there is difficulty finding qualified personnel for on-site troubleshooting. It enables an organisation to begin investing progressively, starting with the most vulnerable part of their network.
The unit doesn’t require a server or external PC and it can be accessed remotely from virtually anywhere with no need for third-party remote-access tools.
Other features of the unit include: multitasking test system for multiple users; discovery and auto-provisioning functions; SMS-triggered test-on-demand; flexible alert subsystem; high measurement range and peak-level monitoring; secure and seamless integration with a LAN.
The product is fully scalable to EXFO’s client-server fibre test and monitoring solution NQMSfibre at a future date, without any change to the test units. The system solution includes functions such as alarm management and reporting, trouble-ticket handling and a view of the entire network status on a schematic. The solution enables network operation and maintenance to be centralised and integrates with existing network management systems.
