Webinar: Cut Fiber Test and Certification Times in Half
Wednesday, May 8, 2019 11:00 AM ET
Regardless of the network, whether it’s a PON, Telco, HFC, highspeed core or 5G access network, it’s a tough balancing act to weigh the time needed to certify fiber during deployment or construction versus the risk of poor or delayed service turn-up or early life service failures. Too much of either increases costs (OpEx) and reduces profits. However, today’s service providers require comprehensive fiber certification to ensure that service delivery is reliable, quick and efficient. And contractors don’t want extra site visits for retesting because that takes money out of their pockets.
This second webinar in our series looks at the reasons for going beyond basic fiber test by including OTDR testing, the benefits of bi-directional testing, the type of issues testing can find, and how the implementation of bi-directional test in the equipment itself coupled with the level of automation and workflow can dramatically reduce test and report generation times.
