In this paper we present the adaptation of QUALIFO, a
software designed to assure and control the quality of optic fiber
cables, to a new OTDR model, concretely the Photon Kinetics 8000.
While the communication with the rest of OTDRs is done through
a National Instruments GPIB interface, this new model requires to
be programmed with a Visual Basic script, and it is connected to
QUALIFO via a simple local area network.
