Charlène Roux, VIAVI Global Product Line Manager, OTDR, Viavi Solutions
Demands for greater bandwidth and speed are driving a global increase in fiber to the home (FTTH). However, this demand for network infrastructure does not always come paired with a corresponding increase in fiber expertise. In the real world, fiber is installed in harsh environments and is vulnerable to a number of faults. The need for testing is real, but to achieve fast and profitable deployments, workflow efficiency must be addressed. Charlene Roux, global product line manager for OTDR with VIAVI, walks webinar attendees through recommendations for successful, consistent deployment and maintenance of FTTH/PON networks without requiring special training or expertise.
