In this course we will go through OTDR principles. You will learn how to
perform many measurements in practice, how to analyse the measurements,
and what to be aware of.
The course is a mix of theory and practice, and we will use OTDRs from
Yokogwa. In brief, the course comprises:
OTDR Measuring in practice
Transferring measurement data to pc
How to analyse results
You will exercise measuring many types of installations, comprising the
many different fiber stretches you may encounter. There will be time for investigating
the many types of dead zones. You will learn what an OTDR may
tell you about different kinds of connectors, dirty connectors, good and bad
splicings, bendings as well as shadows and “ghosts”.
This course may be extended to four days, containing many more practical
measurements. We will also analyse existing measurements (from your
installations), and it will be possible to measure on real installations.
