Get The Most Out Of Bare Optical Fiber Spools

Posted by Kevin Miller on Thu, Apr 4, 2013 @ 17:04 PM

If your company is like most that are involved with building or utilizing fiber optic systems, chances are you have a few spools of bare optical fiber laying around the lab.  Since it is critical to ensure fiber-based equipment works as intended prior to deployment in the field, it is a recommended and common practice for engineers to simulate networks using spools of bare optical fiber.  Because there have been a variety of different fibers available over the years, engineers can end up with fair amount of spools at their disposal.

Why Test Fiber Optic Equipment Using Real Optical Fiber?

Posted by Kevin Miller on Thu, Jun 10, 2010 @ 15:06 PM

When testing fiber optic equipment intended for longer distances during the development/certification stages, it is vital that engineers ensure their products will operate as intended once installed in the field.  In order to do this, there are a few alternative methods that have been used to accomplish this task.  As a leading provider of network simulation platforms containing real optical fiber spools, questions we commonly receive include:
