Although the two organizations are entirely separate, albeit with a part name in common, we share many of the same principles and objectives, and education is at the core of these. The two organizations have agreed to share their knowledge bases and methodologies to advance the technical knowledge of the engineering community at large. In this regard, we are pleased to offer this manual through our online bookstore, as we feel it is a valuable add-on to our fiber courses for engineers and technicians who wish to have a complete reference manual for their particular needs.
These manuals are reviewed and updated on a repeating annual cycle to keep them current in the industry. Older content is retained however but is usually ‘retired’ to the appendices as it loses currency recognizing that there are many older technologies that still remain active.
