The 5 Important Tools for Design, Installation and Manage Fibre Networks

Are you an internet service provider or system integrated to provide service for manage and installation of a network? This post important for all who manage a fiber network for own company or for internet providers. Today technology moving to the next step where we are crossing the speed limitation every day. When we limit on Cat6 network due to length and speed limitation now the fiber taking replacement of every copper networks. keep these important Tools for Design, Installation and Manage Fibre Networks to keep away problem from your network.

Apart from important tools, there are other fiber device OLT, ONU, ONT required to start a fiber network design and manage to see here more about fiber device “ 

To manage and installation of fiber network there many important and useful tools required to avoid miss use and wrong implementation. Fiber cable speed capacity is more but the fiber cable laying procedure is the most important task. Using fiber tools and installation machine very important to provide a quality and professional work.  See the complete list of fiber machine and tool with usage on a fiber networking structure.

There are many Fiber Splicing machine brand available in the market with price range starts from $1500 approximately.


2: OTDR (Optical time-domain reflectometer) machine

best OTDR machine for fiber fault check

After installation of fiber cable network many time we face fiber cable disconnection problem due to various reason. So to detect the fault and losses of fiber cable OTDR machine required. Mostly fiber cable lay underground and its impossible to see visually where the cable breaks down or losing connectivity. In that impossible task make possible with OTDR machine to quickly find the fault of underground cables. OTDR is also manufactured by many different manufacturer and pricing range start from $1000-$1100. To provide a zero downtime and world-class service in fiber network you must have an OTDR machine to quickly find faults. While you buy the OTDR machine you also get the proper instruction “how to use OTDR machine in Fiber fault check”


3: Fiber Optic Cable (OFC) Power Tester

how to splice fiber optic cable manually

Fiber power is an important factor to make a stable and lose free network connectivity. Optical fiber power only can test with a power tester which measures in dBm. Before connecting any fiber patch cored and fiber cable power must be tested to avoid disconnection and packet loss (RTO- request timeout) in the network. Fiber tester is a meter which required to connect fiber both end and its show what power getting on the same cable. After testing cable power you can decide to installation if getting proper power which required for proper connectivity.


4: Visual Fault Locator (Red Light Fiber Optic Cable Tester)

Visual Fault Locator is small red laser light tools to test the optic cable fault physically eyes. Physically it is a small torch to locate the fault in fiber patch cord and cable laying in the network. Its pass the light to end if cable fine but if cable break or band than light not reached to an endpoint it means there is an issue with the cable. With using Fiber Visual fault locator you can quickly find the cable loses in the network. This fault locator also useful to check fiber patch cored continuity before connecting to the network. Approx. the price range of Visual fault locator with red light fiber optic cable tester is $20-$25.


5: Cable Cutter Stripper and Fiber Cleaver
