FTTP Test Strategy

A PON network can be tested from many points along the fibre path. Good planning should ensure break points are available along the route so fibre test tools can be inserted. The main test point can be in the Central Office using a rack mounted OTDR and Optical Switch to access a number of fibres.

The Central Office OTDR result will identify exactly where the fault is and further diagnoses can be performed using a hand held OTDR, multifunction meters or laser source and Power meters.

A sample of PON test tools are shown here with links to our shop site with prices and specifications.
