Technical workshop on FOCL "Measuring and welding equipment for optical fiber of the world's leading manufacturers: Fujikura, EXFO, Anritsu"

As part of the work on information and technical support in Ukraine for the development of advanced systems and methods for transmitting information, on September 22, 2011, Tehencom LLC, together with companies Fujikura (Japan), EXFO (Canada), Anritsu (Japan-USA) held in Kiev a free one-day workshop for technical specialists performing the following types of work:
- welding and installation of fiber-optic communication lines (FOCL) and information transmission systems;
- acceptance tests and certification of FOCL;
- FOCL maintenance, troubleshooting;
- training of personnel to work with FOCL;
- equipment of measuring and metrological optical laboratories.
