Paper Abstract

An overview is given of what fiber optic standards are and where they are generated. Fiber optic reliability is particularly important because of traffic density and migration closer to the subscriber. Fatigue testing may be used to estimate long-term fiber reliability either in the form of a probabilistic lifetime for a known applied stress, or as a safe stress for a lifetime goal.
