The Certified Fibre Characterisation Engineer (CFCE) certification is designed for test engineers who want to apply the full power of multi-purpose test platforms, with their powerful array of measurement capabilities, to carry out full fibre characterisation. This, includes bi-directional OTDR testing, chromatic dispersion, Polarisation Mode Dispersion (PMD) & spectral attenuation measurements.
You will learn to deal with issues such as extended wavelength operation & the impact on testing of systems including ROADMS & Raman amplifiers. You’ll be able to process the results swiftly and efficiently, using test report software, to provide full system documentation. And by appreciating all the issues behind the tests you will be able to assess link performance intelligently against application support criteria.
