The OTU-5000 offers all the features and performance of an OTDR and an optical switch in a small footprint. It has the capacity to test up to 48 point to point or point to multi-point fibers and more for a volume occupying only 1/3 of 1RU. The remaining 2/3 can be used by Test Access Point module to monitor fibers in service or to expand the switch capacity. OTU-5000 qualifies the network build then, detects and notifies users of any degradation affecting fibers when the network is in service. The OTU-5000 is compatible with VIAVI ONMSi and SmartOTU software applications. The SmartOTU software allows the user to set up monitoring quickly with user friendly software and no training. The ONMSi software allows the user to institute a feature rich, network wide monitoring system while managing multiple OTUs concurrently
