Before replacing an optical cable, you need to note the flowing points:
During the process of replacing an optical cable, the services are interrupted temporarily.
Be careful when you remove or insert an optical cable in case that the connector of the optical cable is damaged.
When installing or maintaining an optical interface board or an optical cable, do not observe an optical interface or connectors of an optical cable.
The bending radius of a single-mode G.657A2 optical fiber is greater than or equal to 10 mm, and the bending radius of a multi-mode A1b optical fiber is greater than or equal to 30 mm.
Connectors of optical cables are divided into the LC type and the SC type. You must select an optical cable according to the interface type.
Before replacing an optical cable, you need the following tools:
ESD wrist strap or ESD glove
If a connector is dusty, clean it with dust-free cloth or fiber cleaning paper.
Before inserting the new optical cable, remove the dust caps and keep them properly for future use. Then, connect both ends of the new optical cable to the optical interfaces and secure the optical cables.
After replacing an optical cable, collect the tools and the replaced optical cable. Do not place the old and the new optical cables together to avoid confusions.
