Accurate OTDR Measurements in the Outside Plant

Date 09/24/2014 Overview

The optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR) is used to perform distance, attenuation, and reflectance measurements.  However, most OTDR users do not know how to properly calibrate their OTDR to perform accurate distance measurements.  This session, presented by The Light Brigade, will explain the causes of inaccurate distance measurements as well as how to correctly adjust the instrument, including how to specify these processes when working with contractors and developing "as-built" documents. Once these procedures are in place, these practices can be used to identify faults with greater accuracy during emergency restorations.
