No matter how demanding your optical requirements are we have the equipment and technicians to help you with your project. We have extensive experience in constructing and making additions to existing fibre optic systems.
We use FITEL's industry's first hand-held core alignment splicer to meet the needs of traditional backbone construction AND challenging field installations such as FTTh, FTTn, LAN & HFC.
All TPS fibre technicians are proficient at working with this splicer as well as the associated test equipment. They have experience working in both inside environments (telephone exchange and data center) as well as harsh external environments (man holes, bucket trucks, road side footpaths).
Optical Time Domain Reflectometer
Because of today's demanding network payloads, it is no longer acceptable to just test at 1310nm, it is important to be able to test at higher wavelengths such as 1510 and 1625 to alleviate any problems that may exist due to bend radius issues, splice issues and even over tightened cable ties in the fibre line system.
Every line system commissioned by TPS has been tested at 1310, 1550 and 1625 wavelengths. These OTDR results are then compared to return loss testing at the same wavelengths.
Our technicians are also experienced at locating and rectifying faults in existing line systems for you.
As part of our testing service experienced back end staff will also analyze the OTDR results using software to interpret the results at a later date. This "double checking" ensures that we never miss a potential problem with our work
Return Loss Testing
So that we can validate our test results produced by the OTDR it is essential that we also capture results with a return loss test set. Whilst a return loss test set can never be as accurate as an OTDR, it provides a very good "sanity check" which all of our technicians have come to rely on extensively.
Data Base of Records(DBOR)
Because so much of our optical work is within the Telecommunications sector we find that many telecommunications companies already have extensive DBOR's in use and process documents to follow.
We are experienced at working with many existing systems. For example, when we perform optical work for Telstra we need to have working knowledge of internal Dbor's such as Multiman, Wams, Trac & Canrad.
In addition to this we have experience working with a field "Workbook" which is loosely based on the existing Telstra fibre workbook. Our workbook lets our technicians compare and examine test results whilst still out in the field. This means that if a issue is detected, it can be rectified without the need to take equipment offline in an "outage" scenario.
