May 23, 1400 EDT: “Best Practices in Fiber Connectivity”, Tyler VanderPloeg

Explore the best practices to follow when installing cabling systems to the latest IEC and TIA standards. Learn how proactive connector certification can assure optical system performance in data centre environments. See the essential tools technicians need to guarantee fiber connectivity performance, drive workflow and efficiency, and eliminate endless troubleshooting hours.


June 20, 1400 EDT: “Fiber Testing Fundamentals”, Ed Gastle

Uncover the basics of Tier 1 fiber infrastructure testing in premises network applications. Explore the fundamental tests required to certify Tier 1 fiber optic network cables for loss and length measurements. Learn the latest standards requirements for fiber installation including TIA 568 and ISO 14763-3 for both single-mode and multimode fibers.

July 11, 1400 EDT: “Performing and Analyzing Fiber with OTDRs”, Tim Yount

An optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) is fundamental during install qualification or troubleshooting for detecting, locating and measuring events or impairments (e.g. splices, bends, connectors and breaks) on the fiber link. Learn about Tier 2 fiber plant certification and how to interpret the OTDR results, and how to compare the tested fiber parameters against industry standards, such as ISO/IEC-11801 and TIA-568-C.
