    ‘Ghost’ events in Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR)

    Sometimes an anomaly called ‘ghost’ event appears in an OTDR trace that can be confused with a real reflective event. This application note explains how to distinguish an OTDR ‘ghost’ from a real event and lists techniques to eliminate ghosts from OTDR traces.

    Guidelines On What Loss To Expect When Testing Fiber Optic Cables

    To be able to judge whether a fiber optic cable plant is good, one does a insertion loss test with a light source and power meter and compares that to an estimate of what is a reasonable loss for that cable plant. The estimate, called a "loss budget" is calculated using typical component losses for each part of the cable plant - the fiber, splices and/or connectors. If the measured loss exceed the calculated loss by a significant amount (remembering the inherent uncertainty in all measurements), the system should be tested segment-by-segment to determine the cause of high loss.

    Top four network modernization trends for 2024

    Modern enterprise should never be constrained by the limits of an aging network infrastructure. The successful modern enterprise ensures that the entire operation is equipped with the bandwidth it needs, delivered securely to the furthest reaches of its extremities. Speeds of 100Gbps, with redundancy options, are the base upon which the modern enterprise should build when sharing data, applications and processes.  Time is money might be an adage your grandmother taught you, but it’s never been truer than in today’s business world where multi-million dollar deals may hinge on the efficacy of low-latency communications and applications.

    Why is the bandwidth of optical fiber high?

    For many business leaders, finding a balance between network capacity, cost, and user experience is a daunting task. But as more organizations depend on data-intensive cloud applications for their critical operations, reliable Internet connectivity is vital for productivity and operational efficiency.

    Experts estimate that 200 ZB of data will be stored in the cloud by 2025, so if your bandwidth plan is too limited, you’ll likely grapple with challenges like unpredictable Internet usage patterns and spikes in traffic that negatively affect your network’s performance. That’s where the flexibility of burstable bandwidth service comes into play. In this blog, we’ll explore the benefits of burstable bandwidth and how it can help your business meet new Internet traffic demands.

    Top 5 Best Mini OTDR On 2023 | Optical Time Domain Reflectometer

    With the rapid advancements in fiber optic technology and new fiber network deployments, OTDR testing methods have become indispensable for building, certifying, maintaining, and troubleshooting fiber optic systems. 

    An Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) is an instrument used to measure and create a visual representation of a fiber optic cable route. The measurement data can provide information on the condition and performance of fibers, as well as any passive optical components along the cable path like connectors, splices, splitters and multiplexers. 

    Once this information has been captured, analyzed, and stored, it can be recalled as needed to evaluate the same cable over time.

    OPTICAL FIBER FUSION SPLICER TYPES (FUSION SPLICING MACHINES) NEED TO KNOW

    Fusion splicer is a kind of optical fiber splicing equipment, which is mainly used for the construction and maintenance of optical cables in optical communications;Fusion splicing is the act of joining two optical fibers end-to-end. The goal is to fuse the two fibers together in such a way that light passing through the fibers is not scattered or reflected back by the splice, and so that the splice and the region surrounding it are almost as strong as the intact fiber. The source of heat used to melt and fuse together the two glass fibers being spliced is usually an electric arc.
