EXFO (NASDAQ:EXFO) announced the latest feature set for its iOLM application designed to simplify OTDR testing and measurement. The iLOOP feature uses the loopback single-ended measurement method to characterize two fibers through a single acquisition. The feature is intended to perform automatic result-splitting of the two fibers live from the test site.

With automated multipulse acquisitions and algorithms, the iOLM OTDR-based application is designed to deliver information on every element across the link with a single-button operation, as well as link characterization. Once the measurement has been completed, iLOOP automatically creates two distinct fiber links, applies pass/fail thresholds and generates individual iOLM and OTDR (.SOR) files with a report for each single fiber.
