NTest Releases White Paper on Fiber Monitoring

NTest, leading provider of communications test and measurement solutions for optical fiber monitoring, has just published a new white paper discussing the use of a Remote Fiber Test System (RFTS) to create a proactive maintenance strategy by predicting which fibers are most likely to fail in a carriers optical network and prioritizing their replacement.

Early adopters of fiber optics are finding a rising number of failures due to fiber degradation of their initial network deployments. These carriers estimate they have billions of dollars of fiber that needs to be replaced over
