How to Identify and Locate Copper Faults Simply and Quickly
Information Resources  
6/19/2017  
A TDR (time-domain-reflectometer) is a great tool to identify and locate copper faults. Any technician sent out for installation, repair, or maintenance should be able to use such a tool. First line field technicians not addressing copper faults will leave non-reliable service, cause additional operational costs on a repeat visit, and ultimately result in customer unhappiness and threat of churn.

Global communications service providers continue to evolve their networks to deliver the user-driven service models and higher bandwidths demanded by consumers. At the same time, 5G densification initiatives are top of mind around the globe, with hundreds of thousands of 5G small cells needing an open, programmable and highly scalable access technology to fuel the growing demand for connectivity. As a result, 5G densification projects will demand fixed-access networks, supporting fronthaul, backhaul and crosshaul applications that provide:

  • Service agility by applying modern data center principles aligned with DevOps service creation and deployment
  • Hardware and facilities redundancy offering unprecedented business continuity
  • Low latency supporting the rigid specifications of the 5G standard
  • Network elasticity to support service growth to not just multi-gigabit, but multi-10Gbit/s levels
  • Cost sensitivity supporting mass market services further enabled by Fixed Access Network Sharing (FANS)
With the current maturation of 10G broadband technologies, and the heightened demand for high-speed fixed and mobile connectivity, 2017 is promising to be the year mass-market, multi-gigabit 10Gbit/s fiber services become commercially viable.
