Planning to Upgrade Your Fiber Optic Network?

The advanced fiber characterization service from M2 Optics enables organizations to successfully upgrade their fiber optic networks to 10G, 40G, and 100G while having confidence in both the integrity and performance of the fiber infrastructure.

Depending upon your specific needs, we offer a customized package with any one or a combination of the following critical tests:

Standard Tests:

  • OTDR
  • Insertion Loss & Return Loss
  • Visual Connector Inspection
  • Fiber Link Latency
  • Bit-Error-Rate (BER) for 10G

Advanced Tests:

  • Bit-Error-Rate (BER) for 40G and 100G
  • Chromatic Dispersion (CD)
  • Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD)


Our highly experienced fiber characterization team has performed these tests at some of the world's largest data centers and entities, while actively maintaining fiber and testing certifications from Corning®, BICSI®, and FOA/CFOT.  

Prior to performing the service on-site, our technicians will first schedule a brief consultation to confirm the complete project requirements and details.  Upon completion of the service, a comprehensive and professional report of the results/findings along with related images, traces, and measured values is generated for useful reference.


Save Time with FC Project Management Services

Fiber characterization testing typically requires additional time spent by network engineers for related planning and communication with additional teams (internal or 3rd party) when preparing for the on-site service.  By taking on some or all of these coordination efforts, M2 Optics can save valuable time not only for the individuals involved, but potentially reduce the overall project timeframe as well.  Let us know how we can help!
