Improve the quality of fiber installations with extended fiber certification
A study of network owners, conducted by Gilmore Research Group, indicated that the need for
greater bandwidth, increased storage demands, and transitioning to higher network speeds are the
top three growth drivers for their fiber networks. The quality of the fiber cabling installed
to meet these demands is increasingly important. The same study revealed that more than 25%
of respondents frequently experience problems with their fiber networks. And more than 62%
of respondents have not yet upgraded to 10-Gigabit.
Just as with copper cabling,
the best way to avoid latent problems with fiber is by proper
certification. New fiber test solutions that snap onto copper cable testers have made certification
per industry standards easier and more cost effective. This white paper will explain how contractors
and consultants/designers—in addition to network owners—can benefit from performing complete fiber certification.
