Paper Abstract

Although fiber optic networks have some major differences from copper- based networks, the process of testing and troubleshooting them is actually very similar. The techniques can be easily mastered by technicians with some basic training in fiber optics and network testing. The basic procedures outlined below were originally developed by Fotec personnel in conjunction with the customer engineering groups of suppliers of fiber optic networks. These procedures have, therefore, been thoroughly field proven in thousands of installations.
