A Construction Support System for Optical Fiber Networks

Tetsuhiro Yamashita, Akio Hasemi


The expansion of optical fiber networks has created an increasing demand for greater efficiency and higher quality in cable laying and repair work. This paper reports on the development of a compact, simple system for the support of optical fiber testing and measuring work in the course of construction. In this system a small, lightweight portable terminal is used to operate an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer and Optical Fiber Selector that are installed at a considerable distance from the work-site, allowing the results of measurement to be referred to as work proceeds.
