Global Portable OTDR Market 2014-2018

An Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) is an electronic-optical instrument, a combination of a laser source and a detector, which is used to characterize optical fiber. An OTDR accesses only one end of the fiber and makes multiple measurements which are used to reveal defects, faults, and also determine the amount of signal loss at any point in the single optical fiber or complete network. OTDRs are widely used by network constructors, service providers, and operators to characterize each component of the link, pinpoint a potential problem with the fiber or to find fault with the network. OTDRs use mainly two types of reflections namely "Rayleigh backscattering" and "Fresnel reflection". Rayleigh backscattering is used to calculate the level of attenuation in the fiber as a function o......
