Simplifying Tier 2 Certification in Fibre Optic Cabling

iOLM greatly simplifies Tier 2 OTDR certification and allows technicians with relatively little experience to certify and if necessary, analyze and troubleshoot fibre cabling regardless of the complexity of the link. Further, by testing each link with multiple configurations the OTDR will provide the most accurate reports ensuring that only good links pass and only bad links fail.
