Ethernet optical access

When deploying fiber in the access network, operators have long valued systems that use each fiber strand bidirectionally. The reasons are simple.

Bidirectional optics also help to reduce various operational troubles, such as misconnecting a two-fiber link (splitting the pair) and asymmetrical fiber failures.
