This 3-hour course is the fourth in a series of five courses about fiber optic cable systems. The series covers fiber optics from basic light theory transmission to cables, connectors, testing, and signal transmission.

The course, Fiber Optics IV - Testing, describes the optical fiber and optical connection laboratory measurements used to evaluate fiber optic components and system performance, including the near-field and far-field optical power distribution of an optical fiber. This course also reviews optical time-domain reflectometry (OTDR).
