Cabling and Test Considerations for 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GigE) Local Area Networks

Introduction Current communication data rates in local networks range from 10/100 megabits per second (Mbps) in Ethernet to 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) in fiber distributed data interface (FDDI) and Gigabit Ethernet (GigE). However, the increasing demand for internet protocol (IP)-based services including voice, video, and data requires higher speeds and greater bandwidth, leading to […]

OTDR used in Fiber Optic Network Acceptance testing – 2

OTDR used in fiber network acceptance test We will use the manual method of OTDR operation. Start the OTDR and select the correct wavelength and refractive index for the test. Set the OTDR’s measurement mode to “Two Point Attenuation”. In this mode, the OTDR allows you to set markers at any two points on the backscatter […]
