Do you have a suspected faulty Optical fibre cable?
Fibre optic Power meter / Light source and OTDR testing requires advanced interpretation of attenuation traces. Elam have had experience with analysing these graphs for over 15 years. During this time, the testing machines have become extremely clever and automated.
It is important to understand how testing budgets are calculated and why graphs look the way they do. The only way to see a problem arise is to know
what “normal” looks like.
A PASS is sometimes a FAIL! The baseline pass for fibre may not match your unique requirements. For example, you are running a 40Gb link between two switches over a large distance. You will need to better the current Australian standard to ensure the link stays up at 40GB and doesn’t drop to 10Gb because of attenuation or other faults.
So, if you want technicians that analyse your fibre cabling to ensure it does what you need it to do, give Elam a call for your fibre optic OTDR testing.
