Fiber Optic Technologies and Practices

Webinars (videos)

Optical fiber is being driven deeper into networks of many types. As more of a network becomes fiber-based, the specification and administration of the network’s optical technology takes on increasing importance and scale. This webcast seminar, produced by Cabling Installation & Maintenance, examines optical-fiber administration from multiple perspectives.

Fiber to the Most Economical Point: G.fast and FTTdp (IHS Markit)

Webinars (videos)

Overview

While operators deploy fiber deeper into their networks, new innovations in G.fast are enabling more competitive broadband speeds on existing copper plants. Thus, in certain geographical areas with robust copper networks, operators are increasingly searching for ways to allay the cost of going fiber all the way to the home. This is because fiber, although obvious as a future-proof solution, sometimes is simply not economical to deploy to households. This webinar explores new innovations in G.fast and fiber-to-the-distribution-point (FTTdp) that enable next-generation bandwidth coupled with a fiber-deep solution, as well as strategies for delivering next-generation bandwidth to consumers without committing to a full fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) installation.

Data Center Network Infrastructure: Where do Tier-1 and Tier-2 Tests Bring Value and Why? (in cooperation with TIA FOTC)

Webinars (videos)

With the rapid migration and growing adoption of 100G interfaces and the advanced planning of 400G projects, we have seen that reflectance at patch panels can become a serious issue in many cases, especially over existing infrastructure.  Everyone agrees that assessing reflectance issues is more profitable before turning-up the services and iOLM-OTDR is the only tool capable of characterizing this parameter.

Please join this EXFO-hosted webinar to review the ideal conditions for using IOLM-OTDR technology for Tier-1 certification & certification of fiber infrastructure for high-speed 100G service applications.
