July 2, 2001--The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) has released its second edition of Recommended Practices for Optical Fiber Construction and Testing.

The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) has released its second edition of Recommended Practices for Optical Fiber Construction and Testing. Reflecting the latest in optical fiber technology, the updated manual offers design engineers and contractors a guide for selecting and deploying fiber and documenting fiber systems.

The second edition of Recommended Practices for Optical Fiber Construction and Testing includes sections on project management, cable handling tools and equipment, aerial and buried or underground cable placement, special applications, bonding and grounding, fiber enclosures, splicing, connectors, field testing of single-mode optical fiber cable systems, optical fiber documentation, emergency restoration, and maintenance of optical fiber CATV systems.

New to the manual is a table that offers guidelines for assessing maximum losses for a reliable plant. It also provides forms for documenting and designing a system with the appropriate fibers.
