High-quality optilal fiber fusion: why do we speak so? During fiber optic transmition system (FOTS) construction a lot of questions concerning to the necessity of an objective optical fiber (OF) fusion splice quality appraisal and a choice between reasonable criteria for installing line acceptance occur. For installers, the formal problem of fusion splices normalization, acceptance and examination remains unchangingly crucial. In spite of current precision of OF, equipment in use sophistication, adjusters’ proficiency and high-automated control and measuring instruments, fusion splice still continue to be a blank spot from the correct measurement and understanding of its characteristics perspective. Let’s try to bridge that gap once again.

Compact air cable systems: main technologies Air construction is one of the most economical ways of FTTH broadband access networks construction in districts with low-rise and partial building. Of course, it works only if there are bearings to support optical cable and there is not a telephone conduit with entries to houses. This picture is typical for many small Russian towns, towns in the south of the country and in rural areas. Even in many cottage settlements in Moscow Oblast a telephone conduit is not installed and electric power lines are constructed on bearings as air cables. All of these factors turn air construction into the topic of a great current interest. Today, several technologies of air construction are used. Which one to prefer?
Further training of specialists: problems and solutions The authors of the article are reasonably anxious about an escalating gap between the rising telecommunication equipment complexity and the declining qualification level of specialists who come to work in the industry. Unless Universities are not able to improve alumni qualification, the main part of the problem can be tackled by advanced training courses. Read in this article what they should be like.
