The Sidewinder automates the multi-fiber inspection process. Technicians get the automatic test results (pass/fail) for all 12 MPO fibers in less than 12 seconds. Typically, 100 MPO connectors can be certified in less than 20 minutes, compared to an industry average of 4.3 hours (a 92% reduction).The final quality can be certified according to customer requirements, including IEC-61300-3-35.

This all-in-one stand-alone instrument includes a variety of features including autofocus, auto-pan / scroll, endface analysis, color touch screen, embedded data storage and Wi-Fi connectivity to mobile devices.
MPO Optical Switch Module
Viavi’s MPO optical switching module for the T-BERD / MTS-4000 platform offers an integrated and automated OTDR test solution for the characterization, certification and troubleshooting of fiber optic cables and MPO.

It provides T-BERD / MTS-4000 users with the MPO test functionality without investing in a new instrument.

This solution is compatible with CERTiFi, the cloud-based management platform for deploying tasks on Viavi’s MPO test instruments and managing test results.
