SANTA CLARA, Calif. -– FiberWork Optical Communications achieved this month the mark of 1 million kilometers of characterized optical fiber. The company has been accomplishing specialized services of optical fiber networks characterization and diagnoses for the most important telecom carriers, utilities, manufacturers and system interaction companies all over the world. Just to mention, in the last work of the company, there was characterized 18 thousand kilometers of optical fiber.

Specialized optical characterization is essential for the project and implantation of optical transmission systems using DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) as well as 10 and 40 Gb/s optical channels. This activity involves careful optical measurements in the fiber plant and compilation of optical parameters as chromatic dispersion, PMD (Polarization Mode Dispersion), optical return losses, OTDR advanced analysis and optical attenuation. "Next generation technologies, as 40GB/s, involves big challenges that request a much more accurate network characterization, besides demanding the analysis of new optical parameters”, explains Elso Rigon, company’s services director.
