Finding the location of a fault on a copper pair doesn't have to be like finding a needle in a haystack. Faults come in all different shapes and sizes, some are even intermittent. Opens, shorts, bridge taps, and splices could be on any pair at any time, so every technician needs to understand where these faults are located; the detection of the fault alone is often half the battle. There are many methods for locating copper faults such as using TDR or RFL, and when coupled with new analytic methods, the fault-finding task becomes much easier and less time consuming.
This webinar will explore different fault-finding techniques, whether you are deploying voice, residential DSL, or hi-cap services. In addition, you will learn how to work smarter, not harder, when detecting and locating faults. At the end of this webinar, the hope is that you will be more confident in your fault-finding prowess.
