AFL Launches New Test Equipment Solutions at GITEX 2017

Spartanburg, SC – October 2, 2017 – AFL, an industry-leading manufacturer of fibre optic cable, connectivity and equipment, is exhibiting at GITEX Technology Week, October 8-12 in Dubai. AFL’s newest product solutions will be showcased in booth Z-M32 including ROGUE®/aeRos® Workflow Management solution, the FlexScan OTDR and the FOCIS Flex Fibre Inspection System, plus FibreFab data centre connectivity.

ROGUE is a patent-pending flexible modular test equipment hardware platform designed for the enterprise and telecommunications markets. Technicians are able to pair with apps on their smart device and select the functionality for complete control of test hardware from any Android, IOS or Windows smart device. ROGUE OTDR modules are supported by AFL’s aeRos workflow management solution, a cloud-based, comprehensive workflow management solution that integrates every aspect of the testing process.

AFL’s FlexScan OTDRs enable both novice and expert technicians to quickly and reliably troubleshoot optical networks or fully characterize newly installed or repaired networks. Using FlexScan’s innovative SmartAuto mode, multi-pulse OTDR scans quickly and accurately detect, locate, identify and measure network components and faults. After applying industry-standard or user-set pass/fail criteria, the characterized network is displayed using FlexScan’s intuitive, icon-based LinkMap view.

With the press of a single button, AFL’s FOCIS Flex fibre optic connector inspection system auto-focuses, captures and centers the end-face image, applies pass/fail rules, displays image and pass/fail results, and wirelessly transfers image and results to a paired Android or iOS smart device, FlexScan or FlexTester OTDR. All in a matter of seconds.
AFL will also showcase FibreFab network infrastructure products for high density data centre environments and Light Brigade® training and education.
