About Portable OTDR
An Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) is an electronic-optical instrument, a combination of a laser source and a detector, which is used to characterize optical fiber. An OTDR accesses only one end of the fiber and makes multiple measurements which are used to reveal defects, faults, and also determine the amount of signal loss at any point in the single optical fiber or complete network. OTDRs are widely used by network constructors, service providers, and operators to characterize each component of the link, pinpoint a potential problem with the fiber or to find fault with the network. OTDRs use mainly two types of reflections namely "Rayleigh backscattering" and "Fresnel reflection". Rayleigh backscattering is used to calculate the level of attenuation in the fiber as a function of distance while Fresnel reflection is used to detect physical events along the fiber link. OTDRs are broadly classified into three categories depending on their design:

Portable/Handheld, Rackmounted, or Benchtop.
Analysts forecast the Global Portable OTDR market to grow at a CAGR of 12.89 percent over the period 2013-2018.
