Overview: The fastest way to shrink your operational expenses and start generating revenue is to find the fastest way to test and turn up services. Sometimes it’s as simple as eliminating unnecessary or redundant steps in the process.
A long-standing method for testing new services and troubleshooting existing ones is the bit error rate test. It's also the most time consuming, often requiring two or more cycles of 12- to 24-hour testing and monitoring. Imagine being able to reduce that time by a half or more. Test and service assurance solutions providers have found ways to do this, such as using a combination of Optical Signal-to-Noise Ratio (OSNR) testing and BER testing. In this live webinar, our speakers will show, using the math, that there is a better option to standard BER testing. Viewers will learn:
The symbiotic relationship between OSNR and BER
Why at least some BER testing might be redundant
How OSNR testing can predict the success (and therefore the need) of a BER test
How streamlining this process saves opex
How you can get to the troubleshooting stage much quicker if needed
