The RXT-4111 OTDR module features a tunable laser for verifying ROADM channel routing in DWDM networks. The tunable laser covers all wavelengths from 1563.86 to 1528.77 (C-band) based on a 50 GHz channel spacing according to the ITU-T wavelength grid. Optional features include a power meter, a light source and a visual fault locator.

The newly redesigned OPX-BOX+ features a number of updates compared to its predecessor. An improved poly-carbonate mechanical design, increased data point spacing, and latest generation iOS Bluetooth chipset support are some of the key hardware improvements.

Fiberizer Mobile software used to operate the OPX-BOX+ remotely via iOS and Android platforms has also undergone user interface and functional changes. V-Scout link mapping has been simplified while Fiberscope support and R-server file transfer are now unified and integrated. Optical measurements have been improved using better processing and analysis techniques while PDF report generation and PON Conversion Tools provide additional functionality for FTTx applications.

Both products will be on display at the ECOC Fiber Exhibition in Valencia, Spain, and the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in New Orleans.
