Poor fiber connector inspection results might not be down to defects or damaged to the fiber itself but could be a result of issues with your inspection environment.
Between surface dirt and dust and wear and tear on your equipment, you may be getting more failures than are actually warranted.

This eBook aims to help you address these potential factors in order to improve the acuracy of your fiber connector inspection results.
