Precision measurements on optical fibers
As the optical fiber industry matures, the precision and accuracy of measurements improve to further reduce cost and enhance performance. The divestiture of AT&T has resulted in a multivendor marketplace that must rely on common measurement techniques to ensure product compatibility. Such a set of voluntary standards has been a goal of the Telecommunication Industries Association (TIA). Their standards provide a system of documentation to efficiently procure fiber and other lightwave components.
