Looking at copper and fiber cabling plants, one of the best ways to gain more value is to ensure it comes with a long-term replacement warranty directly from the cable manufacturer. Obtaining a full manufacturer’s warranty can only be accomplished through cable certification testing. Without proving passing certification test results, your cabling will not be fully covered by most manufacturer warranties. In this article, we’re going to explore what a cable manufacturing warranty is, why you want one and how to best obtain a warranty for future cable installs.

Viavi Solutions’ ONT 800G FLEX XPM module now supports QSFP-DD800 testing, accelerating the production of 800G network infrastructure. It is the first lab validation system to offer support for both OSFP800 and QSFP-DD800 modules, enhancing the industry’
AFL has unveiled its OFI-BIPMe, an optical fiber identifier technicians can use to determine if a fiber is live, the transmission direction, and the relative core power.
The OFI-BIPMe is a cousin to the previously introduced OFI-BIPM. It offers a lower price point for applications that do not require advanced PON functions such as the capability to detect ONTs.
Viavi introduced multiple new capabilities for its Optical Network Monitoring Solutions family of remote test and monitoring platforms. The company says the new capabilities enable further network intelligence in fiber environments that form the foundation of high-speed core and metro ring networks, as well as access applications in passive optical network (PON), 5G and data center networks.
