We have established an effective fiber commissioning process that will lower your maintenance costs.
It might surprise you how many fiber optic installation professionals have not undergone the advanced testing skills & knowledge training for accurate hands-on testing and fiber commissioning. How important is this for the success of your fiber optic project? If you want to have confidence your project has been installed correctly and will operate as needed, it is very important. At GP Associates, Inc. located in North Carolina and serving communities nearby such as Knightdale, North Carolina as well as areas in other states, we handle it all, including designing, installation, testing, commissioning, and maintaining your fiber optic network.
Fiber testing and fiber commissioning are the processes by which we determine if the fiber optic cable installed is working properly and can be used afterward to learn if it is still, in fact, in good condition. We utilize top-quality testing equipment and our expertise to measure and calculate critical data that is essential in troubleshooting and identifying faulty aspects of the fiber optic network.
The most basic part of fiber commissioning is to determine if enough light is passing through the fiber optic cable so that the network can function. While this may sound straightforward, it entails testing specific parameters, such as reflectance, connector loss, and slice loss to be able to provide you with proof of performance documentation.
If you want to be sure that your fiber optic installation is done with fiber commissioning as part of the process or you are looking to reduce restoration time spent as your technicians search the various system components, call on us for full documentation fiber commissioning with labeling, mapping, and archiving of test results to give you peace of mind and lower your maintenance costs.
