Gold Support for your OptiFiber OTDR is still available with coverage dates not to exceed December 31, 2016.

Gold Support for your OptiFiber® OTDR allows you to make the most of your OptiFiber purchase while ensuring a higher return on your investment. As the requirements for testing and certifying fiber continue to grow, you need to ensure the performance of mission-critical fiber infrastructures. Gold Support will give you that added insurance by minimizing downtime, faster trouble resolution and total access to all support resources.

What do you get with Gold Support for your OptiFiber and OTDR Fiber modules?

Annual Calibration and Factory Refresh – ISO 9001 standards compliance requires annual unit calibration. Keeping your Fiber modules calibrated is critical to ensure accuracy when testing fiber networks. Our calibration processes are ISO-9001 controlled and designed to certify that your OptiFiber and OTDR Fiber modules meet all published specifications. When you schedule calibration for your OptiFiber and covered OTDR Fiber modules we will set you up to receive a loaner* unit while your OptiFiber mainframe and OTDR Fiber modules are precisely calibrated to factory specifications (calibration certificate provide – calibration traceable with data available for extra charge), repaired as necessary with genuine OEM repair parts, upgraded with all of the latest software and firmware then cleaned and performance verified. In addition, all accessories that came with your OptiFiber will be tested and replaced if faulty or defective. *Loaner unit for calibration is currently only available in the U.S., and must be scheduled.

Repairs and loaner equipment – If your OptiFiber or covered OTDR Fiber modules fail, we’ll deliver a loaner unit via next-day delivery to keep you up and running. We’ll repair your OptiFiber or OTDR Fiber module and replace defective accessories that came with your unit at no charge, with first on bench priority, and return it to you – all shipping paid by Fluke Networks.

Accessory Replacement – Some accessories are essential to testing and certifying fiber cables. During the term of your Gold Support contract, if any standard accessory that came with your OptiFiber is qualified as defective or faulty by our technical assistance center, it will be replaced free of charge. There is a limitation of one Launch Lead and 250X/400X Inspection Camera per year, provided they have met the aforementioned criteria.

Covered accessories include:

• Batteries • MMC reader • Launch Leads – (1 Launch Lead per year) • Chargers • Cables • Carrying cases
• 250X/400X Inspection Camera – (1 per year)

Ideal OTDR – 33-960 OTDR


The Ideal OTDR (33-960) Micro OTDR is designed for the installation and troubleshooting of LAN, campus and WAN fiber networks where increasing bandwidths require more in-depth testing and certification. The Ideal OTDR (33-960)’s feature set – highlighted by precise measurement, a one-button ‘Autotest’ function, and short attenuation and Event Dead Zones – results in a unit that provides accurate characterization of connectors and splices, as well as fast and reliable fault location even on the shortest of network links. A Manual Mode enables users to define all test parameters. There is also a Real-Time mode for troubleshooting and identification of intermittent problems. Multilingual PC software to manage traces and test data is included with the Ideal OTDR (33-960). The software’s AUTO mode makes interpretation of traces straightforward, while its EXPERT mode allows more experienced users to evaluate test data using up to 4 markers for attenuation in dB and dB/km, optical return loss and reflection. With adjustable PASS/FAIL limits, the software gives a clear indication of the quality of links being tested. Test results can be exported in Bellcore format, making them compatible with worldwide OTDR standards. Test results can also be printed or stored as PDF files.
