Let us start by talking about LSZH, for starters it stands for Low-Smoke Zero-Halogen, which means it’s made of a non-halogenated material therefore making it flame-retardant the low-smoke part refers to the amount of smoke it generates when burnt.
The other day I was walking down the street minding my own business when all of a sudden I see this small classroom where kids were having a test, at this moment I couldn’t help but notice one of the kids was scrambling through his backpack trying to find a pencil, and that got me thinking about what equipment we need when testing a Fiber Optics Network.
So, you may be walking by the street and stumble on some random Fiber Optic cable somebody lost and now all of a sudden, you’re thinking about Loss or as it is also known “dB Loss”, “attenuation”, as well as “Insertion Loss”.
When designing and installing a fiber optic network, experts will need all the product’s specifications they’re working with to determine if their design will work for the intended use the client needs. To have these specifications an accurate testing of the fiber optic’s components, systems, and even cable plants will be needed.
The NICT (Network System Research Institute )and Fujikura Ltd. (Fujikura, President: Masahiko Ito) developed a 3-mode optical fiber, capable of wide-band wavelength multiplexing transmission with a standard outer diameter (0.125 mm) that can be cabled with existing equipment.
I was checking my Linkedin account and I found a comment from @JimHayes.
At first, I thought it was a joke, but I believe some integrators or technicians could be motivated to do it, and let me tell you, its really a bad advice.
When it comes to the maintenance of your communications system, cleaning your fiber patch cables constitutes an essential task in order to guarantee the proper functioning of your equipment.
