New Reference Web Site Launched for Fiber Optics


The Fiber Optic Association (FOA), an international nonprofit professional society for the fiber optic industry, has created a free online reference Web site to complement traditional textbooks such as FOA’s Fiber Optic Technicians Manual.

The new FOA site was created as a reference tool for schools and students studying for FOA certifications and as a readily available reference for FOA-certified technicians.

“The Internet has lots of information on fiber optics, but it’s often written from a commercial point of view, outdated, incomplete and very difficult to find using search engines,” says FOA President Jim Hayes. “The goal of the FOA Online Fiber Optic Reference is to provide more complete and technically correct information on one web site available to everyone for free.”

The site is comprised of basic reference materials in conventional Web pages, topical tutorials in slide-show format and reference documents formatted for easy printing. Typical hands-on processes like cable preparation, termination, splicing and testing are covered in great detail. Study guides are available for both students and instructors.
