Optical Explorer - Industry's first optical fiber multimeter

Innovation at work

Optical Explorer is more than an improvement of existing fiber optic test equipment—it represents a groundbreaking new approach to fiber installation, turn-up and repair. The kind of innovation that only EXFO—backed by 37+ years of fiber optic testing expertise—can deliver.

  • Any singlemode link up to 40 km (point-to-point)
  • FTTx last mile installation
  • FTTx service activation and repair, including in-service testing
  • Last mile/access network installation and repair
  • Fiber health check-up
  • Power level testing
  • Insertion loss and ORL testing
  • Fiber-break location
  • Fault identification and location (splices, connectors, macrobends)


Cut hidden costs to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO)

Hidden costs throughout a product’s life make up a massive, yet sometimes overlooked, part of TCO. And it includes more than just the initial purchase price. 

Optical Explorer’s lifetime calibration, patent-pending click-out optical connector and field replaceable battery empower field techs to do more directly from the field, cutting costly downtime and logistics associated with factory-based updates, maintenance and repairs.

Search out potential faults, don't waste time on good links

During the optical link verification process, the Fault Explorer feature automatically explores only those links suspected as faulty—eliminating any doubts while saving testing time.

Within five seconds, Fault Explorer will display IL, ORL and length on good links while tracking suspicious events. Technicians get the chance to solve problems on the spot, without escalation.

Validate link quality in seconds, get a 1 to 5-star rating

Just because a link’s individual elements pass inspection, doesn’t guarantee that link was constructed according to industry best practices. 

With the built-in EXFO Advisor feature, techs get the benefit of EXFO’s 30+ years of fiber expertise and sophisticated algorithms at the push of a button, assigning ratings to links based on industry best practices. It’s a qualitative assessment of fiber link health that looks at how efficiently and robustly a link is built.
