Optical fiber technology has consistently gained popularity in the past decade especially with the global deployment of Fibre-to-the-Home, the popularity of social media among the ‘digital’ generation, and also highspeed wireless connectivity such as 4G and 5G. Optical fiber has been regarded as the arteries that carry exponentially growing demand for bandwidth, capacity, and performance. Every year almost a billion optical connections are being deployed amounting to approximately US$6billion in 2020. Therefore it is essential that such massive deployment of fiber optics follows and comply with the international standards and also the regional best practices. It is only with such standards and best practice compliance that the network is assured in terms of performance, reliability, and also future scalability.

Through this webinar, Dr. Richard Pitwon, Chairman of IEC SC86B will share the recent development of optical standards from the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), which is the international standards and conformity assessment body for all fields of electrotechnology.

Mr. Lee Lian Teak, a highly experienced engineer from Emtelle, will share real-life experiences of innovative approaches in optical fiber deployment focusing on methodologies that comply with regional best practices and also less disruptive to the environment and infrastructure.
