Insatiable data demand, caused by the relentless growth of mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) devices, is driving mobile networks to evolve from a typical macro cell site based coverage topology to a denser capacity-based heterogeneous network. Recent advancements in radio technology (improved power amplifier efficiency, better design and longer MTBF), have enabled service providers to install remote radio units (RRU or RRH) close to the antenna near the top of the tower. This technology improvement has enabled service providers to improve capacity, coverage, and signal integrity, while at the same time reduce electrical, leasing, and cable costs.
Viavi helps ensure top performance in virtually every major network—from the NOC to field technicians—and over 100,000 data centers worldwide, from deployment and installation to monitoring and optimization.
Fiber Connector Inspection and Cleaning
Dirty connectors are the number one cause of poor performance in optical networks. Microscopic particles of dirt can create enough signal loss and back reflection, causing significant downtime and network damage. The increasing bandwidth requirements in today’s mobile networks leave little room for the errors caused by dirt.

The VIAVI OneAdvisor-800 is designed to meet the evolving needs of service providers, field technicians and contractors as they scale 5G infrastructure. OneAdvisor-800 allows cell site technicians to test fiber, RF, and CPRI/Ethernet from a single instrument, replacing multiple independent tools (OTDR, CAA, Fiber Scope) and significantly reducing the total cost of ownership.
The instrument’s workflow user interface carefully guides technicians through a pre-configured common test process, making sure that technicians complete the job in the same way and to the same specifications. With OneAdvisor-800, tower hands get built-in guidance, automatic test configuration, pass/fail results, and a single closeout report every time, at every site.
OneAdvisor helps you get in, get out, get paid.
- Improved tool efficiency. Replaces multiple independent tools (i.e. OTDR, CAA, Fiber scope, etc).
- Broad coverage. Covers all radios types (LTE and 5G) and topologies (Macro-cell, Small-cell, C-RAN, and/or DAS)
- Scalable. As a team’s test responsibility grows, so can the OneAdvisor platform with modular test components
OneAdvisor-800 Test Process Automation Benefits
- Greater accuracy. Complete test plans exactly to the specifications of the service provider with precise measurements.
- Consistency. Test processes and workflows are defined centrally and “pushed” to test instruments, eliminating the variability of manual procedures and drives consistent, repeatable results, regardless of technician skill or experience level.
- Lower Training Costs. Training focus shifts to the test process itself, which is faster and easier to learn, rather than on technical information that is generally time-consuming and overwhelming for new technicians.
- Speed. Job Manager eliminates wasted technician time trying to remember which tests to run and how to run them
The OneAdvisor-1000 delivers all the test capabilities technicians and engineers need to install and maintain high-capacity networks. Supporting emerging and legacy technologies, the OneAdvisor-1000 is ideal for metro/core, data center interconnect, and business services testing.
At this stage in the technology’s lifecycle, 400Gbps services in the field are rare and finding portable equipment to test those circuits is a challenge. The VIAVI OneAdvisor-1000 tester is more than up to the task, providing full-rate and protocol coverage to address service activation, troubleshooting, and maintenance for 400G circuits. With advanced tests like Optics Self-Test for QSFPx and SFPx pluggables, high-speed cable testing for data centers, RFC 2544/Y.1564, and OTN Check, technicians and engineers can test high-capacity networks faster and more accurately than ever before.
