Fiber-optic tests for Gigabit Ethernet.

Fotec, Inc. has completed research that shows significant errors may exist if cable plants are tested with conventional fiberoptic test equipment. Because Gigabit Ethernet uses laser sources as transmitters in order to obtain necessary gigabit modulation speeds, it is important to use Gigabit Ethernet test kits that accurately test laser sources. Laser sources launch light differently than LEDs used in lower-frequency systems and have lower losses in the cables. Fotec is soliciting participants interested in testing their installed cables with a laser and a LED source to find variations in loss for Gigabit Ethernet links.
