A New Life for Old Fibers: Upgrading your fiber optic cable plant

Networks running on fiber optics are generally state-of-the-art, but even advanced networks can be improved. That means faster speeds and more traffic density. Fortunately, lots of older fiber is capable of upgrading to faster networks including WDM, but it may need testing to ensure it will work, especially if the links are over 20 km and upgrades are to 10 gigabits (Gb) and above.

Viavi unveils new optical fiber testing capabilities for PON, 5G and data center networks
