EXFO examines the basic information that must be validated before putting MPO-based fiber-optic cabling systems into service.

Working with MPO-terminated cabling systems is a new and potentially challenging endeavor for many technicians. From a testing and performance-assurance standpoint, three performance checks are essential—polarity, continuity, and connector cleanliness. This webcast seminar, produced by Cabling Installation & Maintenance and sponsored by EXFO, examines the basic information that must be validated before putting MPO-based fiber-optic cabling systems into service. It then explores each of the three tests in detail, explaining the potential risks of omitting any of the three tests.
