Fiber Deployment is on the rise (no shock there).  How do you transfer need-it-now, real experience to a new (and inexperienced) fiber tech? There are any number of things that you can point to to demonstrate what is driving growth in fiber deployment including regional FTTH/PON initiatives, national high-speed broadband growth, core 100/200G upgrades, or […]

Vereinfachung der Zertifizierung von Glasfaserkabeln mit hoher Dichte Der Anstieg der Faserakzeptanz auf Seiten der Serviceprovider ist für die Hersteller von Faserverbindungen eine großartige Sache. Bei denen, die diese Glasfasernetze dann in Betrieb nehmen müssen, verursacht die Entwicklung allerdings oft Kopfschmerzen. Denn die Tatsache, dass immer mehr Glasfaserkabel verlegt werden, stellt für Installateure und Techniker […]

Fiber technicians are constantly challenged to keep up with new, innovative technologies that can disrupt normal long-standing test and certification practices. Whether you are an installation contractor, an IT manager, or somewhere in between, understanding the key concepts and practices of any new technology (such as MPO) is critical to keeping pace with industry needs […]

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 […]
