Splice Loss Estimation is the process used within the splicer to gauge the amount of optical power lost at the splice joint due to core misalignment. This is accomplished by analyzing the profile image of the fused fiber and is typically common knowledge for fiber optic technicians in today’s industry. However, there is often a lack of clarity regarding the differing splice loss estimation methods. Not all splicers use the same estimation technique, nor do they possess the same level of accuracy or precision. This blog focuses on the Fujikura 41S fusion splicer and its loss estimation advantage compared to other cladding alignment splicers.
Digital transformation may seem overwhelming at times and the answer may not seem straight forward but with lateral thinking, deductive reasoning and smart management tools, we make things happen.
This webinar will cover: the benefits of deploying 10 Gigabit PON, guidance on monetizing the subscriber edge, how to support current service needs, and the ability to scale economically.
Leviton’s HDX LC and MTP® Fiber Splice Modules bring field splicing to ultra-high-density networks. Plus, they are the only MTP splice modules on the market – opening up network migrations to 400 Gb/s.
The U.S. utility industry may have just experienced its first malicious “cyber event”—or at least the first such event to be reported. The report was a “denial-of-service” attack that disabled Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance devices ringing power grid control systems for the affected locations.
To get started in fiber optics, you need to follow a simple path. Start with your abilities. Do you have the dexterity to do the kinds of work fiber optic techs do? You need fine motor skills to work with hair-thin fibers and color perception to mate the right fibers and cables when splicing. For outside plant work, you also may need to be able to perform heavy construction duties.
Will Jensen, who most recently served as vice president and general manager of RF and microwave solutions at Molex, became Berk-Tek’s president on June 17. Jensen succeeded Paul Trunk, who retired as Berk-Tek’s president after 22 years with the company.
The number of devices connected to the Internet, including the machines, sensors, and cameras that make up the Internet of Things (IoT), continues to grow at a steady pace. A new forecast from International Data Corporation (IDC) estimates that there will be 41.6 billion connected IoT devices, or “things,” generating 79.4 zettabytes (ZB) of data in 2025.
After 3 1/2 years of development, BICSI has published 009-2019, it’s Data Center Operations standard. Its primary purpose is to help reduce unplanned disruptions in data center services. It provides guidance on Standard Operating Procedures, Maintenance Operationg Procedures, Emergency Operating Procedures and Management.
Much like any weather system, the cloud moves and changes according to its surroundings. Where the cloud meets the horizon, some notice a new formation, one caused by the development of IoT. The fog extends the cloud closer to the devices, thus reducing latency. Regardless of the definition, edge data centers will be required, either as new construction or created from smaller existing enterprise or colocation data centers.
