The Fiber Optic Association (FOA) has created a new free online reference site that contains a comprehensive collection of information on this cable media.

The reference site was created to complement traditional textbooks such as the FOA’s Fiber Optic Technicians Manual, but it can be kept up to date more easily, can be accessed from anywhere and is much less expensive than printed books.

“The Internet has lots of information on fiber optics, but it’s often written from a commercial point of view, outdated, incomplete and very difficult to find using search engines,” said Jim Hayes, president of the FOA.

The site is comprised of basic reference materials in conventional web pages, topical tutorials in slide-show format and reference documents formatted for easy printing.
