Gamma OTDR

Updated: April 2019 (Android),
September 2018 (iOS)
OS: Android and iOS
Download: Full version (free)

Gamma OTDR (optical time domain reflectometer) is an easy-to-use application that serves not only as an optical trace viewer but also as a full function OTDR, having connected an external measuring module. The measuring module connects to any iOS device via Wi-Fi using TCP/IP. It has a flexible interface for both smartphones and tablets to characterise the traces due to manual and auto-analysis modes. The remote-control function for the OTDR controller makes Android and iOS devices a part of a powerful measuring system. It supports Bellcore/Telcordia-compliant trace format (SOR files version 2.0) according to GR-196-CORE OTDR (SR-4731) data standard.

Network Map-GIS

Updated: March 2019
OS: Android
Download: Full version (paid)

Network Map is a fibre cable management application using geographic information system (GIS) for designing and drawing fibre network routes for fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) and fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) layouts. It allows users to plan, design, document and maintain a fibre network structure simply and effectively. Signal loss per kilometre of fibre cables, loss at fibre patches and loss of each device such as couplers and splitters are customisable. Fault-location assistance is provided when an OTDR input is given. There are three-tier user access permissions: administrator, user and viewer. Network Map Starter Assist can be helpful in completing each step in a logical order.

Catv

Updated: March 2019
OS: Android
Download: Full version (free)

Catv is a handy application for people involved in the maintenance and design work in the telecommunications area. It enables users to perform theoretical calculations easily and quickly, helping solve problems and failures of their network. The available database allows an efficient search for a node or voltage source of the network by locating them in Google Maps. Easy sharing of images of the designs or calculations is present. Other resources include the connector, polishing and colour code information on optical fibres.

Fiberizer MOBILE

Updated: October 2018
OS: Android and iOS
Download: Full version (free)

This allows users to look through and analyse reflectograms on-the-go. The interface is user-friendly. Graphical zoom with multi-touch features is provided for iOS. Measurement of reflectance, optical return loss and fibre attenuation can be done with two or five markers. Integration with cloud allows easy sharing. The app is compliant with universal Telcordia GR-196 and SR-4731 *.sor formats. It is useful for fibre-optic test and measurement engineers, telecommunication engineers, fibre-optic line installers and other technicians.

LinkMap OTDR

Updated: February 2019
OS: Android
Download: Full version (free)

LinkMap OTDR controls AFL ROGUE(R) OTDR module to acquire and view results in LinkMap or Trace View. Results can be archived for cloud-based viewing and reporting. It provides simple work management and various support options. OTDR tool syncing has been updated to allow continuous synchronising, if there is an error trying to push a tool. Project and fibre group information is also available. Sorting by name, creation time or updated time is possible on Projects List Page. A comparison of different events enables smooth characterisation of fibre-optic networks.
