As the increase in demand for mobile integration becomes more necessary for companies in the telecom industry, it’s no surprise that developers across the board are creating mobile applications to make the lives of professionals that much easier while on the go.
However, one segment of the telecom industry that took a bit longer for developers to mobilize included applications geared towards assisting fiber optic engineers. However, once the integration of fiber optic tracers began being developed and integrated into mobile applications, apps for Apple (News - Alert) devices were still nonexistent. For a long time there was no version of any OTDR trace viewer available for iOS devices at all- until now.
In order to meet the growing demand for fiber optic trace viewers on iOS devices, OptixSoft, a fiber optic software development company, introduced Fiberizer, a mobile OTDR data results analysis application for iPhone (News - Alert) and iPad platforms.
Providing engineers with the ability to access and analyze OTDR traces directly from his or her smartphone not only makes their jobs easier, but also helps to reduce the time from fiber measurement to qualified analysis.
In addition, with seamless integration with platforms like Google (News - Alert) Docs and DropBox, Fiberizer provides a wide net of accessibility of measurement data inside team and high response rate in case any problems with cable occur. Fiberizer is also compliant with universal Telcordia (News - Alert) GR-196 & SR-4731 *.sor format, ensuring the latest industry standards are met at all times.
Fiberizer app is now available for free in the Apple AppStore. For more information, visit the company’s website.
