In this three-part webinar series, we’re going back to the basics of fiber testing. The objective is to guide field engineers and managers across various technologies, from the basics to highly advanced coherent optics.
Connectivity is rapidly becoming a human right. To achieve this feat, the networks supporting this connectivity are being placed under tremendous stress. As an industry, it becomes essential that we ensure optimal levels of optical performance for today and tomorrow. Furthermore, the global situation around the ongoing pandemic has driven an evolution in the best practices for the Test and Measurement (T&M) sphere.
This installment explains the foundations of fiber testing. The next installments will delve into testing DWDM systems and coherent optics.
