Fiber Characterization

What is Fiber Characterization:

Fiber Characterization is: “A comprehensive suite of measurements carried out on a fiber optic cable link, to determine the key performance attributes of that link, which may affect current or future applications.” Fiber characterization also allows the quality of the fiber optic link to be assessed, including the identification of the type and grade of fiber installed.

(There are typically 6 tests which are performed, but an optional 7th test which includes spectral attenuation may be valuable)

  • OTDR Trace Analysis
  • Insertion Loss Measurements
  • Return Loss Measurements
  • Visual Inspection (Connector)
  • Chromatic Dispersion Testing
  • Polarization Mode Dispersion
  • Spectral Attenuation

Results and analysis:

The results of the characterization need to be documented and an important and valuable part of the process is the analysis and interpretation of the results.

This analysis should include an assessment of the infrastructure quality and its ability to support particular systems.


Fiber Characterization Services:

Adtell Integration’s Fiber Characterization Services help customers understand issues and optimize the performance of their fiber networks by identifying the limitations of each fiber. Our service helps reduce time to market for optical-based services by Fiber Characterization Testingidentifying problems proactively and providing time to take corrective actions. Fiber Characterization Services provide an accurate report of individual fiber characteristics along with future scalability and performance. If live fibers are to be used, additional services and charges are required to move traffic off of fibers to be tested.


Fiber Characterization Experience:

Adtell Integration technicians have been working on fiber characterization since it’s inception in the late 1990s. Our technicians have worked in secure locations, foreign countries, telco central office locations, and even The White House. Our company differentiates itself by having Electrical Engineers or highly certified Fiber Optic Technicians with current FC Certifications. Additionally, our staff will occasionally perform report generation / documentation for teams with field operations, but without certified engineers.
