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.
