In today’s telecommunications market, test solutions must be cost effective,
increase productivity, and reduce the complexity of field testing. JDSU’s OFI-2000
Multifunction Loss Test Set offers a highly versatile handheld test instrument,
which has been specifically developed in response to these industry demands.
Configurable at the time of order, the OFI-2000 is capable of fully characterizing
the suitability of the optical fiber for transport, metro, or access networks,
including FTTx and Passive Optical Network (PON) systems.
By combining a large high-visibility color display, intuitive one-button Fiber
Optics eXpert (FOX) functionality, and simple pass/fail indicators, the OFI-2000
enhances productivity and reduces the burden of training technicians. Cables
with high fiber counts can be easily characterized using the OFI-2000’s unique
color-coding and large memory storage capabilities. In addition, professional
proof-of-performance reports can be quickly generated using JDSU’s FiberBudget
and FiberCable software solutions.

Improve productivity and efficiency in the field
The OFI-2000 includes several features that improve productivity and reduce test
times on cables with high fiber counts. Using the test instrument’s FOX
functionality, technicians are guided through the test setup process. In addition,
one single key press automatically tests, displays, and records measurements on
both the near-end and far-end units.
– Ensure accurate and consistent testing with the OFI-2000’s durable shock- and
weather-resistant design
– Extend testing periods using batteries in the field (up to 14 hours)
– Dramatically reduce test times by evaluating fiber continuity, insertion loss
(IL), optical return loss (ORL), and length measurements and displaying all
results on both OFI-2000 units within 15 seconds per fiber
– Minimize the amount of time required for fiber connection and disconnection
using the OFI-2000’s easy front panel access
– Store complete test results in both OFI-2000 units for an on-site reporting
capability in master-master systems
– The OFI-2000 automatically stores results at the end of each test and replicates
the results between the near-end and far-end units to ensure the integrity of the
test data
– Minimize handling errors using the OFI-2000’s pass/fail indicators
Portable, rugged, weather resistant and battery operated, the OFI-2000 is ideal for
field testing during the installation and deployment of both fiber and PON
Easy access to all optical

Test the fiber
Using the OFI-2000’s easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI), the test
instrument is simple to set up for referencing and obtaining ORL measurements.
The technician is easily guided through the necessary steps. Each unit integrates a
precise standalone power meter to enhance referencing and improve optical return
loss budget measurement accuracy.
– Provides an automated bi-directional loss test set for fiber insertion loss, return
loss, length, and continuity checking as well as an optional VFL and optical talk set
– Tests at 1310/1550/1625 nm wavelengths for telecommunications applications
– Tests at 1310/1490/1550 nm wavelengths for FTTx/PON applications
– Provides accurate and reliable ORL measurements even on very short spans of
fiber, FTTx for example

Bi-directional FTTx testing using one technician
– In compliance with ITU-T G.983.3, the OFI-2000 provides a three wavelength
version at 1310 nm, 1490 nm, and 1550 nm, expanding its test capabilities to
– The master-master operation of the OFI-2000 enables technicians to leave one
unit at the central office (CO) in standby mode and perform the testing from
the ONT using the other unit. Alternatively, multiple OFI test instruments
(OFI-2000s or OFI modules for the MTS/T-BERD platforms) can be used.
– Document both ends of the link with one piece of test equipment
Communicate along the fiber
Near-end and far-end technicians can communicate with each other using the
built-in short messaging system (SMS). For more flexible dialog during testing
using a dedicated communications fiber, the OFI-2000 is available with a 45 dB
optical talk set option, providing a dedicated port and headset/microphone for
both units.
– 45 dB optical talk set offers a constant communication capability with a
dedicated port and headset/microphone
– Compatible with all optical talk sets in JDSU’s product portfolio, including the
MTS/T-BERD platforms and the OTS-55

Using JDSU’s unique cable manager solution, the amount of time and costs
associated with analyzing your results can be significantly reduced. Results can be
provided by job, cable, or fiber according to the pass/fail thresholds that have been
preset by the technician.
– Large memory storage capability and pass/fail indicators improve productivity
(up to 1000 fibers)
– The user-definable color-coding management system follows TIA/EIA wiring
standards and automatically decodes the fiber number to help the technician
identify the different fibers

Enhanced testing solution
The OFI-2000 not only functions as a standalone test solution, but it can also be
combined with JDSU’s MTS/T-BERD platforms for the complete characterization of the fiber network using additional test functions, such as OTDR, CD,
and PMD. The OFI-2000 is fully compatible with the OFI module of the optical
test platform allowing for fiber continuity checks and bi-directional length, loss,
and return loss measurements as well as enabling communication through the
optical talk set or using the SMS.
