Introduction to Some Common Passive Components In Fiber Optic Network

Overview A passive optical network (PON) is a point-to-multipoint, fiber to the premises (FTTP) network architecture in which unpowered optical splitters are used to enable a single optical fiber to serve multiple premises. PON allows several customers to share the … Continue reading

What does an Optical Attenuator do

An optical attenuator is a device commonly used to lower the amount of power of an optical signal in a fiber optic communication system. In fiber optics, attenuation can also be called transmission loss. It’s the reduction in light signal intensity with regards to … Continue reading
