  • Testing Parallel Optics

    In this presentation, Viavi's Ed Gastle takes a look at how to test parallel optics in high speed networks, including tips on testing MPOs.

  • What's Going on with Data Center Standards & Technology

    John Kamino provides an update on Data Center Standards & Technology in this presentation from the 2017 BICSI Canadian Conference & Exhibition.

  • Deploying Optical Fiber? Do not Plug & Pray!

    Gwen Amice, Subject Matter Expert, Physical layer and monitoring at EXFO addresses the challenges inherent with testing MPO connectors at the 2017 BICSI Canadian Conference. 85% of the issues in any optical fiber network are induced by bad/dirty connections. And as if we did not have enough troubles with single fiber connectors, we now have to deploy multi-fiber connectors like MTP/MPO to increase density. In this presentation, we will explain the impact of wrongdoing on an optical network and describe 5 best practices that will make your network safer and more reliable. We will dedicate a special chapter on MPO/MTP connectors.
