Importance of Fiber Optic Cleaning
Transmission speeds and data capacities are measured in gigabytes, terabytes, petabytes, and beyond as networks evolve beyond copper to fiber optics. This requires well-trained technicians with effective cleaning processes and materials – the critical first step before test and deployment. A cleaning process must be effective on a wide variety of contamination and across all zones of the end face, or the resulting interference will negatively impact transmission rates and reliability.
