Fibre Optic Testing


Testing your Fibre Optic Cable install is something we do as part of our installation service.  There can be occasions though, where a fault is thought to be an issue, where your fibre cable needs testing by experts with the know-how and right tools for the job.  DCS Communication is this company.

We are able to carry out fault finding and testing using an OTDR (Optical Time-Domain Reflectometer)  and visible light source across the fibre cables on your optical networks.

Prevention is Better than Cure

Our experience and subsequent installation methods come from the position of prevention is better than cure.  Before we terminate any optical cables we check them.  We've carried out many repairs to systems installed by other companies where this principle has not been adhered to. 

The issue facing most under-performing fibre optic systems is signal constraint.  There are two main reasons why this happens; contamination and damage. 

Contaminants are often introduced at the point of installation if correct procedures are not adequately adhered to.  Cracks, pits and foreign bodies on the fibre end points all cause degradation of signal and thus transfer speed.  By testing the cables before proceeding with final-point-meeting DCS Communications ensure the highest levels of data transfer are realised.

Where damage is an issue we have the capability to repair the damaged optical fibre, test it and finalise installation.
