Network Testing (OTDR and Ethernet-Based Services) – Essentials every Network Analyst Needs to Know

If you are new to the fiber optic game or need a refresher in fiber optic fault location and troubleshooting basics, then this workshop is for you! BCNET network infrastructure analysts Dave Stillwell and Oscar Rondon, along with EXFO’s senior applications engineer, will share the theory and use cases for cleaning techniques and OTDR testing.

You’ll learn techniques that will enable you to troubleshoot your outside and inside fiber optic cables and optical circuits on your high speed-networks, both on campus and beyond. The second part of the workshop will deal with ethernet circuit testing for turning up, installing and troubleshooting ethernet-based services. BCNET and EXFO will share the theory and use of the application EtherSAM or ITU-T.1564 standard test methodology. This workshop will give you hands-on experience with fiberscopes, OTDRs and Ethernet Testers running EtherSAM.
