Frequently asked questions

What is the FOA certification?

Is it possible for you to please send me a fiber optic color code bundle pocket size?

When a company is awarded a 'government grant' to install fiber in a given area, does the 'grant' money also include the splicing, testing, etc; is it dark or lit? How about providing the transmission of actual broadband services to a home or business?

What is different between 1310 nm and 1550nm

What are the causes of high loss in FTTH

Have you done any reviews on OSP fiber route-structure mapping systems and the associated GIS, or do you have opinions on the best ones/combinations (Esri, 3GIS, Bentley, Graphical Networks, Vetro, etc.)? Or can you point me somewhere to go read, search doesn't come up with a lot of details

For a fibre of total distance of 160km, what should be the standard total loss per kilometre?

Is there ever a feasible reuse for used/older fiber optic cable? Would some one be in the market for the FOC that is removed from service? Lets say 20year old aerial cable ADSS?

Latency a term that is widely used today. If we manage to make the light travel without interruption we will achieve that the speed is perfect, but the equipment (router, OLT, firewall, etc) generates a processing that takes some time, do you think that LATENCY 0 will be achieved?

What is microtrenching?

How can you handle a degraded buried underground fiber link, which has degraded due to multiple joints introduced during maintenance?

What are the best practices for the preventative maintenance of splicers, cleavers, and thermal strippers.

What does A Rural FTTH Connection Cost?

I work on FTTH projects that utilize 1x32 and 1x64 splitters that do not have any active light on the fibers. Is there a mobile source that can be used in the field to simulate active light through splitters and still provide enough power to travel 20km?

What is dead zone when using OTDR?

What are the best practices for using a VFL to locate fiber faults?

What is the standard of costing for fiber splicing and terminations? Is it per core / per splice or per each cable end irrespective of the number of cores?

Are signs required for underground cables like fiber optic cables? Are they required to have signage so people don’t dig them up or damage them?

Has anyone made a fiber optic pocket reference chart that has cable color orders, frequencies, or other commonly used info on it?
