After you have registered and logged in to the service, you see the Fiberizer Cloud dashboard:
It consists of the following areas:
- Managing, Instruments, Reporting: here you can navigate through or manage your collections, upload bidirectional files or upload unidirectional files to them; search files with the help of filters; manage your OTDRs; manage your templates for reporting; add new items to your sets of collections, instruments, etc.
- List of files: here you can navigate through or manage your files as well as perform individual and group actions on them, and select files for editing.
- List of related files: here you can see files related to the one highlighted in the List of files area.
- File preview: this is the main area where you can work with reports, analyze traces, and perform many other actions.
- Trace map: here you can have a bird view of your trace and change the preview scale.
Currently Fiberizer Cloud handles the following file types:
- OTDR traces: Fiberizer Cloud supports traces in the *.sor format compliant with the universal Telcordia GR-196 and SR-4731 format.
- PDF reports: you can easily create PDF reports based on one or several OTDR traces.
- Excel reports: you can also create Excel reports for better automated processing.
- Bidirectional OTDR traces reports: in Fiberizer Cloud you can do bidirectional analysis of OTDR traces and work with them.
- Virtual trace schemes: you can build your own virtual fiber optic network, edit its parameters, and generate an OTDR trace for it, to compare with a real line trace or for training purposes.
While viewing or editing an OTDR trace or other file, you can conveniently scale it by moving the sliders at the top right corner of the File preview area, or by moving the red borders in the Trace map area.
