Fiber Testing-Fluke webinar email banner 800x300Testing to Support Latest Fiber Applications

Free Webinar - Available OnDemand

1 BICSI CEC and 1 AVIXA RU

In this webinar:

Many technicians understand the mechanics of performing a loss test. The bigger challenge is identifying an acceptable loss value for a given link. A loss budget determines whether a test passes or fails.

During this free webinar, we will discuss different fiber cables types, appropriate applications for each type, the mechanics of performing a Tier I test on fiber optic cable and calculating a loss limit for each component per ANSI/TIA-568 requirements.

You’ll also learn more about infrastructure and testing requirements for emerging fiber applications, such as data centers, smart buildings, 5G and PON.

After the webinar, you will:

  • Understand the different types of fiber optic cabling and where they are used
  • Know the difference between a cabling standard limit and an application limit – and how to calculate them both
  • Understand which loss value to assign to different components of a fiber network, including adapters, splice-on adapters, pigtails and splitters

Know how to read a test result and determine whether it is acceptable to support a given application or manufacturer warranty requirement
