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.
