The extensive use of acronyms and jargon in the fibre industry has been highlighted by a company that has produced a handy guide for those new to the field.
Fiberone manufactures fibre optic network solutions for communication network providers. Specialising in high-quality fibre optic products used in FTTx, CATV, and data centres, the company provides standard and custom fibre optic solutions, from fibre patch cords to patch panels.
A spokesperson for the company said: 'The generation of this chart was based on the realisation that the fibre optic industry is saturated with a wide variety of acronyms.
'Despite the fact that many companies brand their own terms, we aimed to highlight a few that are generally cohesive across the industry. We hope this simple guide can be a useful tool for our customers or anyone working in the field.'
