Overview

Fiber optic connector end-face contamination is a leading cause of fiber failures. Dirt and contaminant cause insertion loss and back-reflection that inhibits optical transmission and causes havoc with transceivers. Fiber loss and OTDR testing can expose this problem, but in many cases, dirty connections make fiber testing time consuming and inaccurate.

Since dirt can be an issue before, during, or after fiber optic certification testing, and migrate from one fiber optic connector end-face to another upon mating, both sides of any connection must always be cleaned and inspected. Further, mating contaminated fiber optic connectors can cause permanent damage as microscopic debris is crushed between end-faces in physical contact. Even factory terminated patch cords or pigtails must be inspected as protective caps do not keep fiber optic connector end-faces clean. Avoiding this common cause of failure, starts with inspecting the fiber optic connector end-face and eliminating any contamination before insertion into a bulkhead or piece of equipment.

The FI-7000 FiberInspector Pro is a fiber optic inspection scope that allows you to inspect and certify fiber optic connector end-faces in 1 seconds so you can get the job done the first time. This fiber optic inspection scope provides automated PASS/FAIL certification take the guess work out of fiber inspection so anyone can be a fiber expert.

"The Versiv tester has increased our technicians’ productivity in the field allowing for easy setup and faster testing of cables. The ease of which we can download stored test results and leave the tester in the field has also contributed to their productivity. Using the same unit for copper and fiber testing keeps everyone familiar with the setup and testing procedures"
Bill Quinn, Estimator/Project Manager, Telaid
 

Features

Fiber Inspection Certification
Certify your fiber end-faces to industry standards - IEC 61300-3-35. Or if you prefer, you can manually grade your end-faces.
Graphical indication of Problem Areas
FiberInspector Pro highlights defects found on fiber end-faces. Instead of just coloring the defect area, the FI-7000 colors the defect and highlights the defect’s background so that the defect is clearly visible. Defects that fail the standard’s requirements are colored Red, while defects that pass are colored Green.
Store End-face Images
Store both end-face images of a fiber directly in your Versiv test results. Combine end-face images with CertiFiber Pro OLTS and/or OptiFiber Pro OTDR test results for the complete history of your fiber cabling health.
Built on the Versiv Platform
The FI-7000 is built on the Versiv Cable Certification Platform which enables you to easily add optical loss (OLTS) and Optical Time Domain Reflectometry (OTDR) or even twisted pair copper or network analysis functionality to FI-7000. Product add-on kits are available for the DTX CableAnalyzer, CertiFiber Pro OLTS, and OptiFiber Pro OTDR.
Versiv’s ProjX™ System

Versiv’s ProjX™ System manages jobs from setup to systems acceptance, ensuring that all tests are completed correctly. Enter the testing details for a job once, and ProjX stores them in a project file with a name the whole team can understand. Change modules or jobs without having to re-enter details. Support multiple testers on the same job by sharing project files via USB sticks or email. Easy just met efficient.

Case Studies

 
CompuCom Case Study

 

​Challenge:
Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, CompuCom enables its customers to focus on their respective core businesses, while CompuCom handles their technology. Offering managed IT services, integration and consulting, as well as teams specializing in data centers, networks, voice and end-user environments, CompuCom supports more than four million users in North America alone. One of CompuCom's customers, CompuComa U.S.-based Top 10 Global Retailer, required a higher standard for fiber optic cable inspection, including faster testing and more comprehensive reporting. In response, CompuCom’s team turned to Fluke Networks.

 

Results:
As part of its service to this retailer, the CompuCom team maintains three data centers plus one backup bunker, containing nearly 20,000 servers and more than 150,000 cables. The team chose to adopt the Fluke Networks Versiv cable certification platform with a combination of the FI-7000 FiberInspector™ Pro, OptiFiber® Pro OTDR, and CertiFiber® Pro cable loss testing modules to provide easy repairs and upgrades. Since adopting the FI-7000 when it was first launched, the team has dramatically raised the standards in testing and reporting, while also simplifying test result accessibility and management. The FI-7000 enables faster test results, which have saved thousands of dollars each year. Most important, CompuCom's client has been very pleased with the higher levels of speed, quality and reliability made possible with the FI-7000. So much so, that this client now holds other service providers to similar standards.

Extreme Packets Case Study
Extreme Packets with LinkWare Live

Challenge:
Extreme Packets completes cabling projects large and small, providing computer network installation services to universities, businesses, and commercial real estate construction. Since its beginning more than 15 years ago, the company has developed deep expertise in cabling, while keeping long-term client relationships. As it has grown and looked to maintain a competitive edge, Extreme Packets saw an opportunity to excel in two key areas: completing jobs more quickly and establishing a simpler way of managing cable test results for its customers

Results:
Upgrading to the Versiv™ DSX-5000 and LinkWare™ Live has dramatically reduced the time it takes to get to systems acceptance. Extreme Packets has reduced its individual cable certification times by 79%, and with LinkWare Live, the company can share test results with clients as soon as they have been uploaded, saving time and allowing clients to track testing progress. Using Versiv and LinkWare Live, Extreme Packets has significantly reduced overall project completion time by as much as 70%. In many cases, a project that would normally take 12 hours to complete with their old testers now takes as little as four hours to finish.
