Paper Abstract

The emergence of optical fibers as an important communications medium has created the need for standardized test procedures for evaluating fiber transmission characteristics. In this paper we will review some of the standardization efforts aimed at improving the agreement between optical fiber measurements made at different locations. We will also outline the characteristics that a standardized test procedure should have to be useful to the fiber optics industry. In addition, the procedures followed in an industry wide round robin measurement study will be described to illustrate the current status of standardized fiber optic loss measurements.
