Paper Abstract

Facing the new demands of the optical fiber communications market, almost all the performance and reliability of optical network system are dependent on the qualification of the fiber optics components. So, how to comply with the system requirements, the Telcordia / Bellcore reliability and high-power testing has become the key issue for the fiber optics components manufacturers. The qualification of Telcordia / Bellcore reliability or high-power testing is a crucial issue for the manufacturers. It is relating to who is the outstanding one in the intense competition market. These testing also need maintenances and optimizations. Now, work on the reliability and high-power testing have become the new demands in the market. The way is needed to get the ‘Triple-Win’ goal expected by the component-makers, the reliability-testers and the system-users. To those who are meeting practical problems for the testing, there are following seven topics that deal with how to shoot the common mistakes to perform qualify reliability and high-power testing: • Qualification maintenance requirements for the reliability testing • Lots control for preparing the reliability testing • Sampling select per the reliability testing • Interim measurements during the reliability testing • Basic referencing factors relating to the high-power testing • Necessity of re-qualification testing for the changing of producing • Understanding the similarity for product family by the definitions
