JDSU SmartClass Fiber Clean your fiber! I can’t stress this enough. As optical speeds skyrocket, so does the sensitivity to contamination on the fiber faces. Getting a traditional fiber microscope into a floorpit or patch panel is next to impossible, but the JDSU SmartClass Fiber tool combines fiber inspection with a pass/fail fiber-optic quality check system. This handheld tool will optically inspect your fiber faces and give you a pass/fail, reducing the cost of field-fiber inspection. Just being able to inspect the fiber without disassembling the patch panel is a huge time savings. See it in action at Interop.
