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 […]

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 […]


How can you improve event detection with your OTDR tests? Ever wondered why your OTDR isn’t reliably accurate in detecting all the events on your fiber under test? One reason is that there isn’t just one test configuration that is optimal to characterize a link with a single OTDR shot. If you use an OTDR […]

Simplify FTTH/PON Testing with “Smart” Fiber Features The rise in fiber adoption by service providers is fueling the demand for workers who can skillfully build and certify fiber plants, especially for deployment of Fiber to the Home (FTTH). This means that installers and contractors, who are traditionally trained in copper or coax network installation, must […]

Part 2 of the Evolution of Fronthaul Networks (read Part 1: Intro to Fronthaul and Part 3: CPRI ) As we learned in part 1, fiber deployment permits the placement of RRH’s closer to the antenna. Also known as light radio, this RRH placement has significantly improved the energy efficiency of cellular networks as the […]
