Paper Abstract

The recent shift in Fiber Optics from long haul telecommunications down to short links (LAN), such as smart buildings, interoffice networks and even mobile applications requires an adaptation to existing test instruments. The OTDR is probably most affected by these requirements. Natural physical constraints such as the speed of light and the inherently low backscatter levels are challenging factors in the design of such an instrument.
