Summary This book offers comprehensive, state-of-the-art information about time-domain fiber-optic testing. Readers will gain an understanding of how to troubleshoot optical-fiber networks using an optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR), while learning the fundamental principles underlying the operation of these powerful testing instruments. From basic fiber optics and fiber testing, to detailed event-analysis techniques, this book covers the entire spectrum of time-domain optical cable test theory and applications. * Only book available focusing solely on OTDR theory and practice * Covers the entire spectrum of time-domain optical cable test theory and applications * Designed to be accessible to both engineers and system technicians * Includes OTDR training CD
