1 February 1992 Postmortem analysis as a tool for building optical cable reliability (Invited Paper)

High reliability and low maintenance are critical attributes of optical cable. Considering the service environment, we can predict some of the possible failure modes in optical cables and develop performance requirements and testing programs for them. However, it is unrealistic to expect that all modes of failure can be anticipated and understood quantitatively. Sometimes the cause of failure is obvious, but at other times the cause of the failure is poorly understood and is worthy of further investigation. By conducting several post-mortem analyses, we have gained an improved understanding of potential failure modes.
