Reliability of devices used in fibre optic systems – General and guidance
|Publication Date:||1 January 2012|
|ICS Code (Fibre optic systems in general):||33.180.01|
Scope and objective
This technical report provides information on the IEC documents concerning reliability for optical fibres, optical connectors, optical passive components, optical active components, optical amplifiers, and optical dynamic modules used for optical fibre communications.
Documents on reliability include summaries of reliability theory and quality management methods, technical information on failure mode analysis and failure mechanisms, lifetime and fit-rate estimates using acceleration tests, test items, conditions, and pass/fail criteria in reliability qualification tests, and tests and measurement methods for optical fibres, optical components, and optical modules.
Each SC in TC86 has already created documents on reliability. This technical report provides this information in a user-friendly manner.
