Summary

Fiber Optic Technician's Manual, now in its second edition, continues to serve as a practical guide for the designer, installer, and troubleshooter of fiber optic cable plants and networks used in today's communications systems. Comprehensive in scope, this book addresses applications of fiber optics including telephone, CATV, and computer networks. Discussion centers on the basics of the technology, the components used, and their installation. Based on materials developed by trainers for their own training programs, including the successful "Fiber U" program, Fiber Optic Technician's Manual, 2nd Edition has been thoughtfully updated and now features new applications, plus new components and processes that have become widely used in the industry. Hints at the future of this rapidly evolving technology are also included.
