The #1 reason for fibre network failures is caused by contaminated fibre connections
Fibre networks are becoming increasingly important as our reliance on digital communication and data transfer continues to grow. With the rise of smart homes, the Internet of Things (IoT), and 5G networks, fibre networks are getting bigger and faster, and they need to be more reliable. However, despite their importance, these networks are not immune to performance issues.
One of the most common causes of fibre network performance issues is contaminated fibre links. Fibre networks rely on a series of thin glass fibres to transmit data through pulses of light. Any contamination on these fibres can scatter or absorb the light, leading to signal degradation and loss. This can cause issues such as dropped calls, slow internet speeds, and disrupted data transfer.
Contamination on fibre links can come from a variety of sources. Dust, dirt, and other particles can accumulate on the fibres over time, particularly in areas with high levels of air pollution. Fingerprints, oils, and other residues from handling can also contaminate the fibres. Even tiny scratches or chips in the glass can cause scattering that degrades the signal.
To prevent contaminated fibre links from causing performance issues, and to make sure the networks stay fast and reliable is:

IBYC must not just be recognised as an essential practice, but needs to actually be performed.
By addressing these issues proactively, fibre network providers can ensure that their networks remain reliable and perform at their best.
