Why intuitive fiber management matters
When it comes to fiber termination, many underestimate the importance of an easy and intuitive fiber termination unit (FTU) installation. The fiber cables are extremely sensitive and having the hourly rate of service engineers in mind, terminating fiber fast and correct – first time, every time – is one of the most effective ways for network operators to ensure a low total cost of ownership (TCO). Intuitive fiber management that guides the service engineer through the installation process, does exactly that, it reduces failure rates and supports a "first time right" installation.
When terminating fiber, high quality standard of the cable and FTU is also a must to avoid damage and minimize failure risks – not only during the installation process, but over the product's long operational lifetime too. If not, it can become a time-consuming problem for the fiber technician to resolve and thus a very expensive problem for the network operator to bear.
