This white paper explores strategies to address the challenge of providing the highest level of network availability at the optimal cost for each service.
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.
As bandwidth requirements continue to grow and fibre penetrates further into the network, dirty and damaged optical connectors need to be dealt with systematically before defects degrade network performance and take down entire links.
Fiber optic is the ideal solution to carry large amounts of data over long distances; however, fiber optics can also be used to gather information about the environment. This white paper presents the technical basics behind sensing over fiber technologies, its main applications and the cabling solutions involved. We will discuss the key factors that will help you define the best solution for your cabling needs, in order to have the most reliable and easy-to-maintain system that reduces your maintenance operations.
