Experience designing cable and network testers has enabled a breakthrough in automated fiber trace analysis. This white paper discusses how an OTDR detects and analyzes test results, and explains expected and unexpected trace data from fiber networks.
This white paper clears up misinformation about OTDR specifications, interpretation, and measurement methods. It describes how LAN OTDRs differ from Telco OTDRs, how to develop an understanding of specifications and how to make informed comparisons.
