FlexReporter Software Suite

FlexReporter software suite works with AFL Test and Inspection instruments to provide a simple-to-use, high-performance cloud-enabled reporting platform. FlexReporter combines FlexApp, a mobile App that wirelessly transfers test results to FlexReporter-Cloud from the field with FlexReports, a fast, comprehensive, 3-step PC software reporting solution. The FlexReporter software suite was developed to make the complicated task of reporting faster, simpler, and easy to use.

FlexReports for simple, ultra-fast report generation: FlexReports is a Windows®-compatible PC software that provides comprehensive test results analysis and reporting for AFL FlexScan OTDRs, FOCIS inspection systems, OLTS, and OPM products. It is available in both Basic and Advanced versions. FlexReports Basic software enables users to quickly view and analyze results. It allows users to generate simple single-fiber OTDR and OLTS reports and includes a 60-day Advanced trial that includes full reporting and OTDR Trace Batch Editing.

FlexReports Advanced is a full-featured reporting and post-processing solution for the generation of professional acceptance reports using Industry Standards. It enables users to generate reports showing dual-wavelength traces and event tables, end-face images, event map,s and loss data for each fiber. Users can apply Pass/Fail thresholds to OTDR event, OLTS measurements, and create and apply application rules per Industry Standards. FlexReports OTDR Trace

Batch Editor enables users to edit and analyze multiple trace files simultaneously.

FlexApp for wireless transfer of data: FlexApp is a mobile Android and iOS App that supports AFL’s FlexScan® OTDRs and FOCIS connector inspection products (FOCIS Flex, FOCIS Lightning). FlexApp wirelessly transfers test results from any FlexScan OTDR or FOCIS inspection probe directly to FlexReporter-Cloud from the field for subsequent analysis, editing, and report generation with FlexReports PC software.

User-friendly interface makes reporting and reviewing results easy: OTDR, certification, inspection, and OPM test results are indicated by specific icons to simplify the selection of test results to report and review.

Report performance, flexibility and customization: Features an ultra-fast and easy to configure cloud report service for large OTDR reports. AFL is a leading provider of high fiber count cables and FlexReporter generates a 6,912-fiber cable summary report in minutes. Also Includes a highly configurable Report Wizard that enables users to generate personalized reports for customer job acceptance. Generated reports that meet accepted industry documentation and feature customized cover pages with customer’s logos. Can create dedicated inspection, insertion loss and OTDR reports, as well as reports combining OTDR, power meter, and inspection results.

Industry Standard and user-defined reports: Test to Industry Standards (ISO/TIA/EN), Application Rules (IEEE/ ANSI), or create User Rules and User Application Rules. As new rules and applications develop, compare existing test results to the new rules, such as emerging Ethernet standards. Supports industry-standard 10GbE IEEE 802.3ae specification using pre-configured 10GbE application rules. Produces detailed 10GbE test report.

Include inspection images in reports: FlexReports software allows the integration of fiber inspection images from the FOCIS family inspection products to be included in customized test reports. FlexReports supports Bellcore/Telcordia.SOR file formats.
