SmartOTU provides plug and play remote testing with advanced OTDR and optical switch technology.


June 3, 2014 — The award-winning JDSU ONMSi family now offers the SmartOTU plug and play remote fiber test system to monitor critical fibers in small private networks. Data centers, industrial sites, utilities, municipalities, and government agencies will all benefit from “out of the box” easy deployment that requires no server or IT support.

Maintaining fiber integrity on mission-critical networks is essential. SmartOTU employs the latest JDSU OTDR and optical switch technology to pinpoint any degradation across tens of fiber links — in an area up to hundreds of square kilometers.

Key Benefits

  • Reduced troubleshooting: Reduces the average trouble ticket closure time by 30%; mean-time-to-repair (MTTR) for fiber optic faults takes minutes instead of hours.
  • Proactive fault management: SmartOTU helps improve anticipation of fiber faults before outages occur by 17%.
  • Maintain your service level agreements (SLA): Operators can further preserve subscriber revenue by quickly detecting and locating fiber intrusions for 24/7 network protection.
  • Ready to deploy right out of the box: Requires no server hardware or local PC for operation.
