Applications Engineer, Advanced Technologies and Solutions
Kevin has been with EXFO for 18 years and has been involved in the telecom industry for 29 years. Starting in excavation as a laborer, Kevin traded in his shovel for a backhoe laying cable across the US. He later worked for a Tier 1 service provider as a splicer and tester, working on new installs and disaster recovery. Kevin became an Operations technician, turning up and maintaining DS1 to 10G systems. Leveraging this field experience, Kevin delivers a unique perspective which shows in his educational approach when delivering expert content through webinars or seminars.
This educational webinar will cover the basics of testing and troubleshooting fiber optics with a focus on critical parameters for standard singlemode fiber.
Join speaker Kevin Peres as he walks you through the fundamentals (e.g., understanding optical return loss) to tackle more advanced subjects such as identifying and locating fiber-related faults with an OTDR that leverages iOLM technology. Connectors and their impact on network health will also be covered.
