Abstract
The cost-effective application of optical communications components requires that the product characterization measurements also predict the actual performance of the component in-situ, particularly for fundamental attributes such as attenuation. In this work, attenuation characteristics of individual components by several measurement methods were compared to the observed power reduction (loss) over a range of complexities of a practical LAN link topology for the ANSI X3T9.5 Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI). The results clearly indicate the need to use quasi-steady-state measurement methods for LAN components, even when the total link length is less than 100 meters.
