About this talk

Webinar Series on Fronthaul Testing The path towards complete FTTA/RRH site turn-up - in just one field trip This webinar series covers everything you need to know to efficiently qualify fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA) networks and confirm that remote radio heads (RRH) and CPRI links are fully functional before leaving the cell site – in just one field trip. This three-part webinar series to learn more about connector inspection and cleaning techniques, fiber-link validation and troubleshooting, CPRI transport link validation, and more. This series aims to help you: - Get your tower crews up-to-speed with fiber testing - Ensure SFPs and RRH equipment are fully functional before activating services - Speed up your deployment while preventing costly repeated tower climbs Part 2: Deploying Fiber at 200 Feet - How to keep your foot on the ground Understanding the challenges in deploying optical fibers within the FTTA/RRH environment. What are the different methods to test and characterize fiber? 1. Recap of previous session 2. Overview of a FTTA fiber network and the components to test 3. Challenges in deploying optical fibers within the FTTA/RRH environment 4. Fiber characterization test methods › OTDR vs PM/LS – the pros and cons › Impact of different fiber types (G652 vs G567) › Bidirectional requirement, gainer vs excess loss, etc. › Loopback measurement technique: results and benefits › Test results documentation 5. Q&A
