Field Testing Single Mode Fiber to support 100Gig and beyond for Campus and Data Center Applications

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 -
11:00 to 12:15

Join Jim Davis of Fluke Networks for an FOTC Webinar, Field Testing Single Mode Fiber to support 100Gig and beyond for Campus and Data Center Applications. Single Mode Fiber is gaining acceptance but is it right for your application? Are there any drawbacks? This presentation will look at some of the requirements for field testing Single Mode fiber to make sure that it will support the new applications you are planning to run on it.

The webinar will start by reviewing inspection and cleaning and will answer many of those little questions such as, “can I use that click pen from UPC multimode connectors on APC connectors? and How do I inspect APC connectors?” From there the webinar will explain how to calculate a loss budget and what wavelengths should be tested. We will look at the best practices in Tier I loss testing to assure the minimum of uncertainty in our test results, including reviewing best practices for single connectors such as LC and SC as well as MPO connections. Finally, we will look at troubleshooting the fiber using an OTDR and give an introduction to the identification of common events in Single Mode OTDR traces.

Attendees will earn 1 BICSI CEC.
