IEC TR 62316
Guidance for the interpretation of OTDR backscattering traces for single-mode fibres
|Publication Date:||1 July 2017|

IEC 62316, which is a Technical Report, aims to provide guidelines for the interpretation of backscattering traces, as obtained by traditional optical time domain reflectometers (OTDRs) - not including polarization OTDRs - for single-mode fibres. Also, backscattered power effects are discussed in case of unidirectional trace.
Full description of the test measurement procedure can be found in Annex C of IEC 60793-1-40:2001.
