WHAT IS FIBER TESTING?
Fiber optic networks have persistently evolved and expanded since coming onto the scene in the 1970s. 5G and Fiber to the Home networks are showing the importance of robust fiber testing and monitoring.
Fiber optic testing is the most important way to make sure your fiber optic cable is operating at its optimal level. Fiber testing is comprised of the processes, tools, and standards used to test fiber optic components, fiber links, and deployed fiber networks. This includes optical and mechanical testing of discreet elements and comprehensive transmission tests to verify the integrity of complete fiber network installations.
The leading communication transport medium in the world is fiber optics. The continued increase in the diversity of fiber optic applications is dictating an increase in the need for technician training and versatile, user-friendly test solutions.
IMPROVEMENT OF FIBER OPTIC NETWORKS
Productivity is becoming obsolete, and efficiency is now the dictating factor. Efficiency must begin in the lab and extend throughout construction and maintenance. EESI Sales offers a fully integrated portfolio of fiber test instruments, software, and services that are flexible and interoperable. The next generation of fiber optic test tools is now faster, easier to use, and more powerful than ever before.
WHY DO FIBER NETWORKS NEED TO BE TESTED?
Fiber optic network testing is unavoidable due to industry standards and warranty requirements, but the reasons do not stop there.
• Increase in complexity and size due to bandwidth market demand
• Innovations introducing more cable segments and insertion loss locations
• Increase in performance requirements
• Decrease in loss budgets
Comprehensive and accurate fiber testing at all network levels and phases can ensure customer satisfaction and competitive edge.
The delicacy and scale of fiber optics can be unforgiving when it comes to contamination, micro-bending, and connector damage. Dirty connections continue to be the number one cause of fiber network failures. Comprehensive testing prior to activation allows any defects or damage to be detected and repaired in a proactive manner.
