Optical Fiber Alignment

Download Whitepaper
Most optical networks have many fiber couplings and even minor losses at these junctions will produce significant signal losses that cause problems in data transmission. Precise fiber alignment at the optical couplings in a network is therefore a prerequisite for accurate and reliable optical data transmission since it produces the least signal loss before assembly or packaging of an optical system. Minimal signal loss also results in the lowest optical power requirements which, in turn, means fewer repeaters, lower capital costs and reduced incidence of failure.
