Webinar #4: Inspect, Clean, Test… Now What?
Presented by: Michael Scholten, Senior Product Marketing Manager, AFL
Utilities are increasingly applying fiber networks to monitor and manage utility assets, as well as to deliver broadband services to underserved municipalities and rural communities. Whether deploying point-to-point monitoring, management and communications networks, or installing and maintaining Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) Passive Optical Networks (PONs), ensuring your network’s optical loss is within budget and no excess reflections are present are key to reliable performance. This session identifies key physical network issues that lead to poor optical network performance, the unique challenges FTTH PONs present, and how to prevent or overcome those challenges using connector inspection and cleaning tools, light sources and power meters, OTDRs and optical fiber identifiers.
