Optical Component and Module Testing to Ensure Operability in the 40G Network

In this webinar, we introduce methods for the optical characterization of high bit rate network elements. We cover both polarization and dispersion characterization tools that are essential to ensuring high bit-rate network operability. We conclude with a demonstration of Luna’s Optical Vector Analyzer and measurements of a tunable filter package for Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) and FTTx applications.



New Optical Test Methods for 99.99% Uptime Networks

In this webinar, we cover a new approach to high resolution OTDR that can significantly increase the reliability and limit the down-time of the physical layer. The method can identify bends, breaks, splices and polarization effects in an optical network. The method is also capable of mapping the strain and temperature distribution along a fiber optic link. We will conclude with a measurement of a short-haul optical network.
