The Access Network is being rapidly upgraded to Gfast loops with deeper fiber into existing cabinets. To maximize speed, engineers need to ensure the Gfast copper loop is pristine or the expected bandwidth will fall short of goal and customer complaints will follow. Tools to Accelerate Gfast Copper Test: OneCheck Copper Diagnostics is a full suite […]

The industry has been a buzz about Gigabit-to-the-Home (GTTH). People want higher speeds no matter where they live and providers are in a race to win new customers – and keep existing customers in this new frontier. One reoccurring question throughout the industry has been, “What’s the best strategy for deploying GTTH?” The question implies […]

5G is on the horizon, and alongside it all of those use cases we’ve seen demonstrated or have heard are in development and under test: connected driverless cars, virtual and augmented reality, remote robotic surgery, smart city infrastructure, wearables. The list is endless, and can be further extended with the whole host of applications we’re […]

Service providers need to build out high quality PON/GPON access networks quickly to offer Gigabit FTTH and Gfast broadband service. Many failures occur at service turn up caused by improper fiber handling and test during construction and provisioning. The result is delayed revenue, decreased profitability, and frustrated customers. Accelerate workflow using remote, centralized OTDR test […]

When you look at this image, do you see a chalice? Do you see two men in profile? Now that I’ve mentioned both images, can you see both images at once? Fiber testing can be like this trick, you have to be able to see more than what is obviously in front of you. In […]

FTTH-PON Q and A

Our recent webinar with Light Reading, Lessons Learned: Efficient Deployment & Maintenance of FTTH/PON Networks, garnered several questions from the attendees. We thought that even those who may not have caught the live webinar might benefit from this Q&A. If you’d like to see the webinar recording, please visit the Light Reading Testapedia page.  Q. Is […]

The Future of Connected Automotives Conversation about the future of the connected automotive industry has been accelerating at pace, and will continue to do so throughout 2018. Interest and investment has gained momentum thanks to the media, car manufacturers, data scientists, technology developers, telcos and operators, regulators, governments and chipset providers, with everyone keen to […]

Vereinfachen Sie FTTH/PON Tests mit smarter Darstellung der Fasereigenschaften Der immer raschere Ausbau der Fasernetze durch die Serviceprovider beflügelt die Nachfrage nach Arbeitskräften, die diese bauen und zertifizieren können. Ganz besonders gilt dies für die Bereitstellung von Fiber to the Home (FTTH). Das hat Konsequenzen. Es bedeutet, dass Installateure oder Vertragsunternehmen, die traditionell für die […]

Cleaning is a vital step of the Inspect Before You Connect (IBYC) process, and like everything, there are choices to make and techniques to consider. Depending on the quantity of fiber optic cables you are cleaning, your level of experience, and the environment in which you are cleaning, some methods may be more effective than […]
