When to use an OTDR

Presented by

Jim Davis, Fluke Networks; Adrian Young, Fluke Networks; Sean Kelly, Light Brigade

About this talk

An Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) is a device that tests the integrity of a fiber cable and is used for building, certifying, maintaining, and troubleshooting fiber optic systems. Hand-held OTDRs build a virtual image of the fiber optic cable to determine the condition and performance capability of the fiber cable. These tools can also test components along the cable path like connection points, bends, or splices to analyze the cable’s capability from start to finish. This webinar will address what testing alternatives users should try first, when they have trouble with an installation, and when the situation would benefit from using an OTDR. The speakers will also discuss guidelines that will enable a more useful trace. Here's your chance to learn from some of our most popular presenters -- Jim Davis and Adrian Young from Fluke Networks, and Sean Kelly from Light Brigade. Attendees will earn one BICSI CEC.
