The Fiber Basics webinar is a comprehensive session covering essential topics related to optical fibres and cable testing. The agenda covers a range of crucial aspects, providing a well-rounded understanding of fibre optics, including: 

  • Physical Principles: 
    • Reflection and Refraction of Light: Understanding how light behaves within optical fibres is fundamental to grasping the workings of fibre optics. 
    • Rayleigh Scattering: Exploring the phenomenon of Rayleigh scattering, which can affect signal transmission in optical fibres. 
  • Characteristics of Optical Fibers: 
    • Common Types of Optical Fibers: Providing insights into different types of optical fibres, such as multimode and single-mode fibres. 
    • Jumpers and Cables: Discussing the components used in fibre optic systems, including jumpers and cables. 
    • Connectors and Polishes: Understanding the importance of connectors and polishing techniques for efficient signal transmission. 
    • Before You Start: Cleaning the Connectors: Highlighting the significance of maintaining clean connectors for optimal performance. 
    • Connector Inspection: Exploring methods for inspecting connectors to ensure they meet the required standards. 
  • Fiber Optic Link Testing: 
    • Attenuation Measurement (Insertion Loss): Covering the measurement of signal loss as it passes through the fibre, known as insertion loss. 
    • OTDR Measurement (Finding Events in the Fiber): Introducing Optical Time Domain Reflectometry (OTDR) as a tool for locating events or issues within the fibre. 

By addressing these topics, TREND Networks aims to equip participants with a solid foundation in fibre optics, from the basic principles of light behaviour to practical aspects such as connector cleaning and testing techniques. The inclusion of specific measurements like attenuation and OTDR adds a practical dimension, allowing you to gain hands-on knowledge about assessing and troubleshooting optical fibre links, making this webinar a valuable resource for professionals looking to enhance their understanding of fibre optics and cable testing.
