Solving a Sticky Situation with Wet-to-Dry Fiber End Face Cleaning
December 12, 2022
Fiber experts agree that many fiber network connectivity problems are caused by dust contamination. Although a speck of dust is typically just microns in size, and only visible with a magnification inspection scope, it still interferes with the network’s light path as it passes between two mated end faces. The light signal weakens, slows down the network speed or results in unacceptable data transmission losses. This often requires expensive and disruptive emergency rollbacks to troubleshoot and remove the contamination.
