VIAVI platform selected for 5G and fibre testing in Philippines
Fiber Infrastructure and Network Services Inc. (FINSI), an engineering and technology solutions provider for telco, energy and infrastructure industries across the Philippines, has announced the selection of the VIAVI OneAdvisor 800 platform for multifunctional test applications. VIAVI was represented in the deal by Ark One Solutions.
FINSI General Manager Marc Kerveillant emphasised the crucial role of fibre and 5G technologies as the company gears up to work on tower erections and active equipment works, stating, “In order to accelerate the Philippines’ transformation into a fully connected nation, it is crucial that we leverage innovative, state-of-the-art technologies that are simple and effective. We chose VIAVI OneAdvisor 800 to help build, maintain and enhance the fibre network and radio access network infrastructure for our clients.”
FINSI will utilise OneAdvisor 800’s optical connector inspection, bidirectional OTDR and radio frequency (RF) measurement capabilities. Innovative capabilities such as OTDR Smart Test, Test Process Automation (TPA) and SmartLink Mapper enable technicians to automate testing procedures. The Cable and Antenna (CAA), Radio Analysis (RA) and Transport Modules of OneAdvisor 800 provide advanced testing capabilities for current and future technologies. By investing in these platforms, FINSI will be equipped with the tools necessary to deliver more impactful and valuable services to its customers.
With FINSI’s expertise in the telecommunications, energy and infrastructure industries, and the advanced capabilities of VIAVI’s OneAdvisor 800 including smart applications and test process automation, the two companies are able to take significant steps towards realising the goal of accelerating the Philippines into a fully connected, sustainable and developed nation.
“We are excited to support FINSI as they leverage VIAVI OneAdvisor 800’s capabilities to enhance their network testing capabilities,” said Robert Cabatan, Director and Solutions Consultant, Ark One. “With the rapid pace of technological advancements, innovative and out-of-the-box thinking is truly needed to help businesses and Filipinos thrive in the digital age.”
The OneAdvisor 800 has been billed by VIAVI as the first test tool designed to address the challenges of a modern network field technician. By rolling all the key test capabilities into one portable tester and combining it with easy-to-use test process and reporting automation, the company has equipped wireline and wireless service providers, equipment manufacturers, system integrators and contractors to the work-speed and test coverage requirements for telecommunication networks buildouts and maintenance.
“VIAVI is glad to play a role in realising a connected nation in the Philippines,” added Rajesh Rao, Vice President, Asia Pacific and Japan, VIAVI. “We are proud of our innovation, but more importantly, we are enabling digital society and transformation with industry-leading, automated test processes, all for multiple technologies including fibre, 5G and beyond. We are also proud of the combined strength of the Ark One and VIAVI teams in collaborating with FINSI.”
