  1. Tracking Down Optical Loss

    Tracking Down Optical Loss     There are three basic steps to identifying loss events and restoring a fiber link. Identify the type and location of optical loss (fault(s)) Repair the fault(s) Test the repaired fiber Where to begin? A good way to start is to eliminate “human error”.  For example, if the problem is in a LAN, ask if anyone has Read more...

  3. Fiber Is Vital To 5G Implementation Everywhere: Get Ahead Of The Trend

    Fiber Is Vital To 5G Implementation Everywhere: Get Ahead Of The Trend   5G Technology Within the IT sector, wireless networking has been dubbed the 'fourth utility' for buildings. Accompanying HVAC, Power, and Water - wireless forms the backbone of enterprise mobility - both between enterprise sites, on a larger scale, and within enterprise sites. Inconsistency, low network speeds, and lack of availability for Read more...
  4. Fiber Optic Dispersion Testing

    Fiber Optic Dispersion Testing   Acceptable tolerances for dispersion greatly decrease as the speed increases Fiber Optic Dispersion testing was not necessary for most 2.5 Gig communication systems. However, as bit rates increase to 10 Gig and beyond (40 Gig & 100 Gig), fiber characterization, particularly dispersion testing, have become increasingly important. The Read more...

  9. How Do I Interpret OTDR Traces?

    How Do I Interpret OTDR Traces?   An OTDR Creates a Picture Time Domain Reflectometers (OTDRs) are a valuable tool for measuring the performance of optical cables. They are often used to create a "picture" of a fiber optic cable when it is first installed so later comparisons can be made to help with troubleshooting network problems. How do they work? OTDRs send pulses of Read more...
