Webinar: VIAVI Solutions YouTube LIVE Ethernet Basics

VIAVI Solutions is hosting a live Ethernet Basics session presented by System Engineers, Dave Baker and Peter Desmarais. Attendees will learn Ethernet technology basics including line rates (10M to 400G), types of pluggable optics, link establishment processes, frame structures, key performance indicators, and best practices to test connectivity and service activation. The presentation will include tips and tricks for novices as well as experts.

YouTube Live OTDR Basics

Join Viavi’s YouTube LIVE OTDR Basics session to learn  OTDR basics including, understanding the mystical launch cable length — how long does it need to be? How to analyze OTDR Traces using Smart Link Mapper; how to identify a fault, and locate the exact distance to the fault along with tips and tricks for novices, as well as expert OTDR users to take you to the next level.

Future for multimode fiber and the opportunities it presents to the data center market

Multimode Fiber is still the front runner in modern Enterprise Data Centers as it provides a low-cost way to transport high data rates over relatively shorter or smaller distances. MMF has evolved from being optimized for multi-megabit-per-second transmission using LED light sources to being optimized for supporting multi gigabit transmission using 850m VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser), which tend to be more affordable than their single mode counterparts.

The Emergence of 400G Pluggable Coherent Optics – Your Questions Answered

Pluggable coherent optics are now being developed for 400G applications with two distinct streams emerging. One is high performance CFP2 based for 1000+km reach and multi-service applications and the other is QSFP-DD ZR (and perhaps OSFP) for DCI and metro Ethernet applications. Both streams present new challenges for test and measurement, not just to meet the demanding technical specifications but also to ensure pain-free integration and deployment in an open ecosystem.

Webinar: Preparing for 5G Deployment Success

This webinar will focus on how you can prepare for successful commissioning and deployment of 5G in the field and beyond. Whether you work at a service provider, in an enterprise or you are an individual wireless or fiber contractor, we’ll include case studies and tips to make your deployments faster, more accurate and with fewer reworks and repeat visits. Key topics include:Why thoroughly testing at every stage of 5G is the only option; Testing process from antenna to core; and analytics to help service providers plan and optimize.

Where US and China stand in deploying the ‘goldilocks of 5G spectrum’

LitePoint’s Director of Product Marketing Adam Smith and VIAVI Solutions’ Director of Marketing Kashif Hussain agree that mid-band spectrum, the 2.5 to less than sub-6 GHz space, is the spectrum sweet spot and that making effective use of it is critical to successfully deploying and scaling 5G. “Spectrum is the number one thing that differentiates 5G rollout from country to country,” Smith stated. “There are some countries that have been very aggressive at opening spectrum for 5G.”

Inspect Before You Connect Poster

Do you Inspect Before You Connect? The VIAVI full-size wall poster will serve as a helpful reminder that Contamination is the #1 Reason to Troubleshoot Optical Networks. Dirty connectors cause 80% of field test failures. Microscopic debris significantly degrades signal performance and can cause permanent damage. Mating dirty connectors can break apart, spread, and migrate particles. And a typical dust particle is 2 to 15 µm and is only visible with a microscope.
