In today’s networks, everything is connected using fiber optics: home, buildings, data centers, antennas, companies, smart cities and so on. It is therefore crucial to test if optical connections are working, if the splices are done properly and that the fiber was not damaged during installation.
The telecom landscape is one of constant, rapid evolution. Testing approaches have evolved tremendously over the years. Methods that were acceptable 20 years ago are obsolete today.
In this educational webinar, we examine various testing solutions, their strengths and weaknesses, what they cover or lack and where they best fit.
The overview will be backed by metrology data as the uncertainty/accuracy of various methodologies are explained.
The following questions will be tackled:
Tier 1 and Tier 2 testing: is the distinction still applicable?
What is “certification”? Is it still relevant? Can I do that with an OTDR?
What is the best testing solution: optical source/power meter, OLTS, OTDR or something else?
At the end of this session, you will be more confident in selecting the right solution for your specific needs.
