MACOM has enabled over a million 100G modules going into data center and enterprise applications. This number is beyond even the largest projections reported by market analysts to date, and includes leadership positions in long reach and short reach laser and VCSEL drivers, CDRs and TIAs. We believe this is just the beginning of a ramp that will see demand for 100G connectivity within data centers triple over the next four years.

iOLM greatly simplifies Tier 2 OTDR certification and allows technicians with relatively little experience to certify and if necessary, analyze and troubleshoot fibre cabling regardless of the complexity of the link. Further, by testing each link with multiple configurations the OTDR will provide the most accurate reports ensuring that only good links pass and only bad links fail.

Only clean connections achieve the values guaranteed by standards and manufacturers. It is therefore vital that installers possess sound knowledge of the correct way to install and clean these components. This white paper contains information on the currently applicable standards and discusses the relevance of properly cleaned fiber optic connectors.

In an ever-growing FTTH market worldwide, service providers are constantly looking for ways to lower the cost and simplify the process of rolling out fibre networks. One area of the network where speed and simplicity are of paramount importance is the final drop to the consumer. As the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. To get the customer relationship off on the right foot, service providers need to ensure that the installation of a new fibre connection proceeds smoothly and with minimal disruption while working in the subscriber’s home. A new product to the market, which can help service providers ensure that installation is quick and efficient, are pre-connectorised fibre cable bundles with blowable ferrules.
