## Fiber Optics Testing

1500 meters , Single Mode

## Pigtail Installed fiber optics Pigtail

Connector Connector
A Fusion Splicing Fusion Splicing B

## What required to be tested ?

Fiber Loss from point A to point B so as to
stimulate to actual fiber optic link connection
by end-user both in SM (1310nm & 1550nm)
and MM (850nm & 1300nm).
