Fluke’s Fiber Test and Troubleshooting — Optical Fiber Cabling for Data Communication Handbook is now available as an eBook! Learn about the fundamentals of how to inspect, clean, test, troubleshoot and document fiber cabling infrastructure installations.
15 years ago, when the demand on the network were smaller, fiber in the access part of the network was an option. Operators thought of fiber when they were upgrading their network or building a new one. Today, customers have moved from, “should we upgrade to fiber” to “we have to do an upgrade”, simply to stay ahead of demand and be competitive. When a community upgrades to FTTH, that “fiber richness” can do more than connect people at home. Today’s 4G and especially 5G need more fiber in the infrastructure. Ultra-fast speeds demand fiber backbone feeding small cells, so FTTH helps with that. On top of that, with the Internet of Things (IoT) beginning to take hold, FTTH lays the foundation for a larger network transformation, and it changes lives.
This video provides a detailed report on findings from the industry’s first-ever salary survey, done as a joint project between Fluke Networks and Cabling Installation & Maintenance. Many characteristics can affect the salary or wage of professionals in the cabling industry, from job title and geography to certifications and specialties.
Figuring out why a cable isn’t working can take a long time. But it doesn’t have to if you have the right tools. Fluke’s Jim Davis shows you how to find problems quickly.
The characteristics that define an edge data center also inform many requirements for the infrastructure within the facility. High-speed networking, a compact footprint, little or no on-site staff, and high reliability are among the attributes of an edge data center that place exacting demands on data center systems. This webinar focuses on edge data centers and the cabling, power and infrastructure components needed.
Don’t miss the two educational sessions led by OFS at the annual Fiber Connect conference, June 3-5, 2019. Their “Fiber Broadband Starter Kit” session will discuss the drivers behind the insatiable demand for bandwidth and the role of fiber in today’s network. Participants will learn the definitions and details of typical fiber network components, installation techniques, and trade-offs for different network architectures. Next up, John George, senior director of solutions and professional services for OFS will moderate a panel entitled “Fiber Broadband Case Studies for Multifamily Properties” will discuss how the growth in optical fiber to Multiple Dwelling Units (MDU) and Multiple Tenant Units (MTU) offers both challenges and opportunities to service providers.
Are you worried about how MICE might affect your cabling? We don’t mean rodents, but the Mechanical / Ingress / Chemical / Climate / Electromagnetic issues that impact Industrial Ethernet. See how to test for the “E” in this new video
Fluke’s MultiFiber Pro tests MPO fiber trunks without the use of fan-out cords. The tester offers automatic scanning and testing of all 12 fibers in MPO connectors and ensures correct end-to-end connectivity of MPO fiber trunks with built-in polarity verification. The tester features a simple user interface that displays all 12 fibers and the ability to drill down to a single fiber test result.
