Introduction to OTDR Testing
The optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR) is one of the most complex instruments in fiber optic testing. To fully understand OTDR measurements, users must first acquire traces, which must then be properly analyzed and interpreted.
This one-day course teaches attendees how to interpret OTDR measurements based on general reflectometry theory. It also covers the limitations of both the theory and the instrument, as understanding these limitations will enable the attendees to get reliable results from an OTDR. An overview of iOLM features is also available.
The training session also includes more specific testing theory and a hands-on workshop that will show attendees how to operate the instrument and perform manual measurements using markers.
