The proper installation of cables and patch cords and the routing of optical fibers in splice trays is crucial to meet the performance expectations of today’s high-speed fiber optic systems.
Most installers and operators focus on optical attenuation and dispersion to handle increasing data rates. However, in single-mode systems, reflectance is just as critical to achieve the desired bit error rate (BER).
