    9. 9. Bending Losses  Microbending – Microbending losses are due to microscopic fiber deformations in the core-cladding interface caused by induced pressure on the glass  Macrobending – Macrobending losses are due to physical bends in the fiber that are large in relation to fiber diameter Attenuation due to macrobending increases with wavelength (e.g. greater at 1550nm than at 1310nm)9 © 2007 JDSU.

Optical Return Loss (ORL)  Amount of transmitted light reflected back to the source PAPC PPC Pelement PAPC PR Source Receiver (Tx) (Rx) PBS PBS PBS PT PT: Output power of the light source PAPC: Back-reflected power of APC connector PT ORL (dB) = 10.Log ( ) >0 PPC: Back-reflected power of PC connector PR PBS: Backscattered power of fiber PR: Total amount of back-reflected power  ORL is measured in dB and is a positive value.  The higher the number, the smaller the reflection - yielding the desired result.10 © 2007 JDSU. All rights reserved.
    11. 11. Effects of High ORL (Low values)  Increase in transmitter noise – Reducing the OSNR in analog video transmission – Increasing the BER in digital transmission systems  Increase in light source interference – Changes central wavelength and output power  Higher incidence of transmitter damage SC - PC SC - APC  The angle reduces the back-reflection of the connection.11 © 2007 JDSU. All rights reserved.
    12. 12. Chromatic Dispersion  Chromatic Dispersion (CD) is the effect that different wavelengths (colors or spectral components of light) travel at different speed in a media (Fiber for ex.)  The more variation in the velocity, the more the individual pulses spread which leads to overlapping. Pulse Spreading12 © 2007 JDSU. All rights reserved.
    13. 13. Dispersion Compensation  The Good News: CD is stable, predictable, and controllable – Dispersion zero point and slope obtained from manufacturer – Dispersion compensating fiber (“DC fiber”) has large negative dispersion – DC fiber modules correct for chromatic dispersion in the link delay [ps] 0 d Tx Rx fiber span DC modules13 © 2007 JDSU. All rights reserved.
    14. 14. Polarization Mode Dispersion  Different polarization modes travel at different velocities presenting a different propagation time between the two modes (PSPs).  The resulting difference in propagation time between polarization modes is called Differential Group Delay (DGD).  PMD is the average value of the Differential Group Delay (mean DGD), so called PMD delay ∆τ [ps], expressed by the PMD delay coefficient ∆τc [ps/√km] V1 > V2 an fiber sp SM dard Stan DGD v2 v1 Perfect SM Fiber span14 © 2007 JDSU.

    18. 18. What Makes a GOOD Fiber Connection? The 3 basic principles that are critical to achieving an efficient fiber optic connection are “The 3 P’s”: Light Transmitted  Perfect Core Alignment  Physical Contact Core  Pristine Connector Cladding Interface CLEAN Today’s connector design and production techniques have eliminated most of the challenges to achieving Core Alignment and Physical Contact.18 © 2009 JDSU.

    19. 19. What Makes a BAD Fiber Connection? Today’s connector design and production techniques have eliminated most of the challenges to achieving CORE ALIGNMENT and PHYSICAL CONTACT. What remains challenging is maintaining a PRISTINE END FACE. As a result, CONTAMINATION is the #1 source of troubleshooting in optical networks.  A single particle mated into the core of a fiber can Light Back Reflection Insertion Loss cause significant back reflection, insertion loss and even equipment Core damage.

    20. 20. Illustration of Particle Migration 15.1µ 10.3µ 11.8µ Core Cladding Actual fiber end face images of particle migration  Each time the connectors are mated, particles around the core are displaced, causing them to migrate and spread across the fiber surface.  Particles larger than 5µ usually explode and multiply upon mating.  Large particles can create barriers (“air gaps”) that prevent physical contact.  Particles less than 5µ tend to embed into the fiber surface, creating pits and chips.20 © 2007 JDSU.

    22. 22. What is Fiber Characterization?  Fiber Characterization is simply the process of testing optical fibers to ensure that they are suitable for the type of transmission (ie, WDM, SONET, Ethernet) for which they will be used.  The type of transmission will dictate the measurement standards used Trans type Speed PMD Max CD Max SONET 10 Gbs 10 ps 1176ps/nm Ethernet 10 Gbs 5 ps 738 ps/nm SONET 40 Gbs 2.5 ps 64 ps/nm22 © 2007 JDSU.

    27. 27. Measuring Insertion Loss  The insertion loss measurement over a complete link requires a calibrated source and a power meter.  This is a unidirectional measurement, however could be performed bi-directionally for operation purposes Calibrated Light Source Optical power meter Perm >2s m B d B d W W m B B d d lu ce an C n e M Pt Pr It is the difference between the transmitted power and the received power at the each end of the link This measurement is the most important test to be performed, as each combination of transmitter/receiver has a power range limit.27 © 2007 JDSU. All rights reserved.
    28. 28. Measuring Optical Return Loss  Different methods available  The 2 predominant test methods: – Optical Continuous Wave Reflectometry (OCWR) • A laser source and a power meter, using the same test port, are connected to the fiber under test. – Optical Time Domain Reflectometry (OTDR) • The OTDR is able to measure not only the total ORL of the link but also section ORL (cursor A – B) OCWR method OTDR method28 © 2007 JDSU. All rights reserved.
    29. 29. Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) OTDR depends on two types of phenomena: - Rayleigh scattering - Fresnel reflections. Rayleigh scattering and Light reflection phenomenon = Fresnel backscattering effect in a fiber reflection29 © 2007 JDSU. All rights reserved.
    30. 30. How does OTDR work ?  An Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) operates as one-dimensional radar allowing for complete scan of the fiber from only one end.  The OTDR injects a short pulse of light into one end of the fiber and analyzes the backscatter and reflected signal coming back  The received signal is then plotted into a backscatter X/Y display in dB vs. distance  Event analysis is then performed in order to populate the table of results.

Contamination and Signal Performance Fiber Contamination and Its Effect on Signal Performance 1 CLEAN CONNECTION Back Reflection = -67.5 dB Total Loss = 0.250 dB 3 DIRTY CONNECTION Clean Connection vs. Dirty Connection This OTDR trace illustrates a significant decrease in signal performance when dirty connectors are mated. Back Reflection = -32.5 dB Total Loss = 4.87 dB32 © 2007 JDSU. All rights reserved.
    33. 33. Measuring PMD <10 seconds PMD Light PMD Source Receiver  Different PMD standards describing test methods • IEC 60793-1-48/ ITU-T G.650.2/ EIA/TIA Standard FOTP-XXX  The broadband source sends a polarized light which is analyzed by a spectrum analyzer after passing through a polarizer The PMD measurement range should be compatible the transmission bit rate. In order to cover a broad range of field applications, it should be able to measure between 0.1 ps and 60 ps. PMD measurement is typically performed unidirectional. When PMD results are too close to the system limits, it may be required to perform a long term measurement analysis in order to get a better picture of the variation over the time. ps33 © 2007 JDSU. All rights reserved.
    34. 34. Dealing with PMD  PMD constraints increase with: – Channel Bit rate – Fiber length (number of sections) – Number of channels (increase missing channel possibility)  PMD decreases with: – Better fiber manufacturing control (fiber geometry…) – PMD compensation modules.  PMD is more an issue for old G652 fibers (<1996) than newer fibers At any given signal wavelength the PMD is an unstable phenomenon, unpredictable. So has to be measured34 © 2007 JDSU. All rights reserved.
    35. 35. Measuring CD CD Light CD Source Receiver  There are different methods to measure the chromatic dispersion. IEC 60793- 1-42 / ITU-T G650.1; EIA/TIA-455- FOTP-175B  The Phase Shift method is the most versatile one. It requires a source (broadband or narrow band) and a receiver (phase meter) to be connected to each end of the link  The Chromatic dispersion measurement will be performed over a given wavelength range and results will be correlated to the transmission system limits according to the bit rate being implemented. Parameters to be controlled in such way to correlate to the equipment specifications: – Total link dispersion. – Dispersion slope – Zero dispersion wavelength and associated slope35 © 2007 JDSU. All rights reserved.
    36. 36. Measuring AP Broadband Light Narrowband Source Receiver Every fiber presents varying levels of attenuation across the transmission spectrum. The purpose of Water peak the AP measurement is to represent the attenuation as a function of the wavelength. A reference measurement of the source and fiber jumpers is required prior to performing the measurements. C+L DWDM Band AP results The receiver records the attenuation per wavelength of the source used for transmission. This could be used to determine amplifier locations and specifications, and could have an impact on channel equalization (macro or micro-bends). Spectral attenuation measurements are typically performed unidirectional. The wavelength measurement range should be at least equivalent to IEC 60793-1-1 Optical fibers – Part 1-1: Generic transmission system: C-band or C+L band.
