  • Essential Testing for MPO Systems
    Essential Testing for MPO Systems
    Guillaume Lavalee, EXFO Recorded: Dec 6 2018 56 mins
    Working with cabling systems that feature multifiber push-on connectors (MPOs) is a new and potentially challenging endeavor for many technicians. That’s why understanding the importance of MPO connector cleanliness, polarity and continuity, as well as how to test each of these characteristics is crucial to ensuring optimal performance. This webinar will review the basic checks you need to make before turning up MPO-based fiber-optic cabling systems and explore each of the three tests in detail, including the potential risks of omitting any of them
  • Implementing next-gen PON technologies over existing fiber infrastructure
    Implementing next-gen PON technologies over existing fiber infrastructure
    Steven Van Den Bergh, Nokia and Guillaume Lavallee, EXFO Recorded: Jul 19 2018 76 mins
    This webinar, jointly hosted by the TIA Fiber Optics Tech Consortium and the Association for Passive Optical LANs, will discuss Passive optical LANs (POL) technology, comparing POL and traditional Ethernet switching architectures, and reviewing the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) standards applicable to the design and testing of POL solutions to address considerations such as splitters, connectors and signals.
  • Evolving Standards for Designing and Testing MPO-Based Systems
    Evolving Standards for Designing and Testing MPO-Based Systems
    Rodney Casteel, CommScope and Ed Gastle, VIAVI Solutions Recorded: Jun 6 2018 65 mins
    As enterprise and data center networks migrate toward architectures that utilize multi-fiber connectivity such as MPO, standards bodies are releasing updates to incorporate these technologies into standardized structured cabling. This webinar provides an update on the revisions to industry standards to support multi-fiber connectivity and will explain how to implement testing procedures that will allow users to provide certification for networks with multi-fiber connectivity.

    Speakers will include Rodney Casteel, CommScope, and Ed Gastle, VIAVI Solutions. Attendees will earn one BICSI CEC for attending.

  • Field Testing Single Mode Fiber to support 100Gig and beyond for Campus and Data
    Field Testing Single Mode Fiber to support 100Gig and beyond for Campus and Data
    Jim Davis, Fluke Networks Recorded: May 8 2018 72 mins
    This presentation will look at some of the requirements for field testing Single Mode fiber to make sure it will support the new applications you are planning to run on it. Starting with inspection and cleaning it will answer many of those little questions, “can I use that click pen from UPC multimode connectors on APC connectors?, How do I inspect APC connectors?”

    From there the presentation will move on to the calculation of a loss budget, what is the correct budget, and what wavelengths should be tested. We will look at the best practices in Tier I loss testing to assure the minimum of uncertainty in our test results. The presentation will explain how this can be done for both single connectors such as LC and SC as well as MPO connections.

    Finally, we will look at troubleshooting the fiber using an OTDR and give an introduction to the identification of common events in Single Mode OTDR traces.

  • Key Considerations for Choosing a Fiber Termination Method
    Key Considerations for Choosing a Fiber Termination Method
    Betsy Conroy & Brian Duval, Siemon Company Recorded: Jan 30 2018 57 mins
    There are many considerations when it comes to choosing your fiber termination method – from the number of connections and the application being supported, to performance and overall required time to go live. While pre-terminated fiber solutions offer significant benefits in terms of factor-terminated performance and ease of deployment, they do require proper planning and predetermining of lengths, as well as longer lead times. Choosing a field termination method like fusion splicing or mechanical splice connectors comes with its own set of additional considerations, including cost, required skill set and labor efficiency. This webinar will examine the various types of fiber termination methods available today, providing pros and cons of each method and basic considerations to help you choose the fiber termination that’s right for your specific fiber deployment, including key questions to ask and termination time comparisons and analysis.

    This webinar is approved for one BICSI CEC.
  • Where Do We Go From Here?  A Fork in the Road for Multimode Fiber
    Where Do We Go From Here? A Fork in the Road for Multimode Fiber
    Robert Reid, Panduit Recorded: Dec 19 2017 77 mins
    This talk will explore the evolution of multimode fiber from inception to current time against the historical transceiver roadmap. We will explore various transceiver form-factors with respect to capability, technology risk, density and cost vs. fiber types that have been deployed (and those yet to be widely deployed). Both transceivers and supported fibers will also be discussed with respect to the evolution of standards that support them.
    Attendees will earn 1 BICSI CEC.
