Testing Layer 1 in a Wireless Environment
Webinar of the Week Blog Series
Expanding wireless coverage to eliminate dead zones within a network is a necessity. This is achieved by connecting the mobile backhaul to various wireless architectures, namely remote radio heads (RRH), small cells and distributed antenna systems (DAS). However, even in these wireless infrastructures, the integrity of the physical link remains critical!
Assuring this integrity requires learning about appropriate connector care and inspection, fiber characterization as well as traditional OTDR testing and trace analysis.
In this webinar, you will get a better understanding of testing best practices, learn the basics of traditional OTDR testing, as well as learn the fundamentals of trace analysis. You will also get an overview of one of EXFO's secret weapons: a revolutionary OTDR-based application called the intelligent Optical Link Mapper (iOLM) that uses multipulse acquisitions and advanced algorithms to deliver detailed information about every element on a link.
"Excellent information and well presented"
