Fiber Optic Tutorial Chapter 11: How To Test The Fiber Optic Cable From End To End (Completion)
http://www.LANshack.com - Fiber Optic Tutorial - Chapter 11 - Testing the Fiber Optic Cable from End to End
Hi this is Tony Casazza from LANshack.com and I would like to introduce you to what I consider to be a very comprehensive and useful video on installing a Pre-Terminated Fiber Optic cable in a commercial building. A while back I was asked to install a fiber optic cable in a local High School. Their goal was for me to install a cable that would allow them to broadcast a live video feed from the High School Auditorium to their Municipal TV channel. Years earlier, a fiber optic cable had been run from the TV studio in the Municipal Building to a Fiber Optic Termination box located on the West end of the High School. In order to get the live video feed to work, we needed to extend the fiber connection in the High School that originated from the TV studio to the camera location in the auditorium that was about 400 feet away.
So my first task was to verify the connection from the TV studio in the Municipal Building to the Fibers terminated in the high school. Once this was done, we installed a singlemode fiber inside of an innerduct from the Fiber termination box to the camera location in the Auditorium. Once it was connected we tested the connection from end to end and used it to transmit a video feed to live TV.

In this video series, you will learn how to
Trace and identify an existing Singlemode fiber that was run between two buildings
Use Fishtape to snake a pullstring across a dropped ceiling
Use the installed pullstring to install an innerduct across a dropped ceiling
Pull a Pre-Terminated Fiber through the innerduct
Extend the fiber in the 2nd building using the newly installed Fiber Optic cable
Test and connect the end to end connection
