Customers are increasingly requesting digital and hard-copy documentation of their fiber installations for many reasons: simple archiving, compliance with company-wide quality standards, or even when applying for long-term cabling system warranties.

Printed test reports not only provide customers with proof of the quality of their installed fiber, these reports also serve as an installer's proof of a job well done in case of disputes.

Most modern fiber optic test equipment -- including OWL test equipment -- is capable of internally storing test results which can be downloaded into a computer for later retrieval or printing test reports.

OWL software requires a Pentium-class PC or better running Windows 98 or later.

Below is a list of the various OWL software programs.
