In any fiber optic system, it is the connectors that link the transmission equipment, the installed fiber spans, and the test equipment. A plethora of connectors have been designed over the years to meet the varied optical and mechanical specifications necessary to ensure reliable performance. This session looks at fiber optic connectors in detail, including how they function, the types and variations that are available, and how their performance is specified. The session goes on to discuss other critical connector-related topics such as termination techniques, reflection in single-mode terminations, and managing your termination costs and connector yield.
