Virtually all of your customers are going to want the system warranty offered by their cabling manufacturer. It also lowers risk for architects, consultants and engineers by proving that the system meets the intended performance to support the customer’s applications, while helping to avoid finger pointing and callbacks that are every contractor’s worst nightmare. A system warranty is essentially your best insurance policy.

While it seems we can’t drive the point home enough that the number one cause of fiber network issues and failures is contaminated connectors, we hope by now that all fiber technicians at least know that they are SUPPOSED to clean and inspect every fiber end face before making that final connection.
But are you cleaning those fiber end faces correctly? Let’s take a look at some best practices.
Mientras que las personas inteligentes que instalan, prueban y certifican instalaciones de cableado de redes conocen la importancia de cumplir con los parámetros de rendimiento de estándares y asegurando el soporte de aplicaciones, incluso el mejor de nosotros puede cometer errores que afectan a la línea de fondo y la satisfacción del cliente negativamente.
Echemos un vistazo a la cosa tonta n.°10 que las personas inteligentes hacen cuando prueban los sistemas de cableado de redes:omitir la inspección de la fibra adecuada.
Today’s office environments are changing drastically in regards to where and how people work. Gone are the days of segregated work areas for each employee with siloed spaces featuring strictly wired connections for a computer and a phone.
Companies today are striving for more open, harmonious work environments and taking advantage of new trends such as collaborative work spaces, BYOD and a combination of work-from-home policies and office hoteling—the practice of reserving work space when needed rather than assigning permanent spaces to employees.
When it comes to Tier 2 testing using an OTDR, measuring the loss of specific events like connectors and splices, as well as overall link loss, depends on the direction in which the measurement is made.
IEEE 802.3bt continues to specify higher power levels to be delivered along cabling that was traditionally designed for purely data distribution, presenting exciting possibilities for the future, however PoE is only part of today’s bigger picture regarding how we are transmitting power.
Multimode fiber (MMF) dominates in local area networks and data centers. Electro-optic converters (e.g. transceivers) used for transmitting and receiving data are less expensive than those used for transmitting over single-mode fiber. Network capacity has increased over the years through the use of parallel transmission – using multiple fibers and multiple transceivers. As the need for capacity continues to increase, the use of multiple fibers and multiple transceivers needed for parallel transmission may increase network cost.
Contaminated connections remain the number one cause of fiber related problems and test failures in data centers, campus and other enterprise or telecom networking environments.
