The world is going mobile, and that means high-bandwidth connectivity to cell phones and tablets, anywhere, everywhere, every time. This demand is overloading the old-style cellular networks that used copper connectivity to the local radio antennas. As a result, companies around the globe are deploying fiber right up the towers and directly to the antennas. For the best results in these geographically diverse, widely distributed FTTA installations, it is essential that the fiber end-faces be perfectly clean. This brief Power Point presentation suggests the products that work best in the FTTA environment which will keep networks running fast and reliably, at the lowest possible cost.
This video is a “how to” demonstration of the Sticklers™ 1.25mm CleanClicker™ 750 Fiber Optic Connector Cleaner, which is a very popular and cost-effective choice for cleaning almost any 1.25mm configuration. Please note there are TWO connector cleaners from Sticklers™ for 1.25mm connectors; this is the refillable, 750-cleaning tool, the other is the 400-cleanings/tool compact device for hard-to-reach locations.
This presentation is based on a webinar about cleaning fiber. It offers a new look at the best practices used to minimize the problems that static can cause on end-faces. Viewed by more than 800 attendees, the presentation explains the puzzling origins of the static on a fiber end-face. It then shows the problems that static can cause which can be exacerbated by attempting to clean fiber with IPA alcohol. The presentation recommends the use of static-dissipative fluids other than alcohol and offers 11 specific “best practices” that should be integrated into every tech’s daily procedures.
This one-page document is a field-friendly “how to” document explaining the established best practices for cleaning female MPO end-faces. High-density fiber networks are a crucial bottleneck in many network environments, including data centers. But even as high-density connectivity has become THE enabling technology for the cloud, another ugly problem has reared up: the practical need to quickly, reliably and affordably clean all those thouands of fiber end-faces. If you’re dealing with a data center environment, this is a big issue, and this document will be a handy helper.
