Perform multiple analysis operations on OTDR trace data processed by a Windows computer to check the status of fiber optics, compare the data to other samples, select appropriate laser measurements, create reflective or non-reflective event markers, etc.

Fiberizer Desktop allows post-processing of saved results from fiber optics measurements. In this regard, the program supports opening various types of files, including SOR files (for OTDR traces), JPG (for fiberscope measurement results) and OXLTS (for optical loss measurement results).

Needless to say, this program is not intended for the common user, not because it is too difficult to use, but because interpreting the resulting graphics requires highly specialized knowledge in the field of telecommunications. Luckily, the tool comes with various samples files, a help document and an excellent manual available online.

Fiberizer Desktop has a neat and modern interface, which is composed of various parts and panels that allow managing data and visualizing the results simultaneously. There is the possibility of browsing your data collection, uploading and searching for files and managing report templates. Besides, you can preview or edit measurement results and perform various operations such as analyzing traces and working on reports. There is also a section where you get information related to events, properties, analysis and summary on different tabs. Finally, in addition to the toolbar, there is the menu from which you can access additional commands.

Besides post-analyzing traces and records, Fiberizer Desktop is also useful in retaining and finding links for bidirectional measurement results, which fortunately works even if the source data is not uploaded correctly. Likewise, the tool can establish links between OTDR traces and other similar results.

The tool generates various types of reports, using its report creation wizard. Besides, you can manage additional templates. It is great that such common formats as XLS and PDF are supported for this purpose.

All in all, Fiberizer Desktop is a must for experts in telecommunications needing to analyze fiber optics measurements. In addition to this free version, which its developers call 'Classic', there is also a Plus version.
