With the development of network technology, the increase in data throughput of operators and data centers, and the rapid growth in demand for high-speed connections, 400G and 100G networks have been widely used. The quality of optical fiber connections has become one of the important factors to ensure high-speed network communications, and how to ensure the reliability of optical fiber connections has also become a major challenge for operators.
Inspection first, then connect
Inspection first, then connect. It has been widely recognized by technicians and standards bodies. Although the standards bodies have established a series of acceptance standards for the quality and cleanliness of the fiber connector end faces, technicians still face many difficulties in the process of practice. How to find the appropriate fiber inspection tools (including customized fiber connector end face inspection and cleaning, end face inspection solutions in special scenarios, etc.) to ensure compliance with acceptance standards or specifications will become very difficult and consume a lot of time and manpower .
A small particle mixed into the fiber core can cause serious back reflection and insertion loss, and even damage key devices of the equipment. Through the " Inspection first, then connect" process, it is becoming more and more important to ensure that the end face of the fiber is clean before the fiber is connected.
IEC standard 61300-3-35
The IEC standard 61300-3-35 is a set of global requirements for the quality of optical fiber end faces. Its purpose is to ensure that the insertion loss and return loss of the optical fiber connector meet the specification requirements. This standard contains standards and requirements for the inspection and analysis of optical fiber connector end faces, and specifies different conditions for different types of connectors (such as SM-PC, SM-UPC, SM-APC, MM, and multi-fiber connectors). The IEC standard represents a reliable and repeatable quality standard, which can ensure that product and network performance maintain a stable performance level throughout the fiber life cycle.
