Offtopic: Fiber optic Link budget [7:75955] posted 09/23/2003

Hi All,

Given the scenario where i have LX tranceivers on my switch (both ends 
of link) with Single mode fiber adn the distance between them is abt 100 
mtrs. Should i be using an attenuator, so that i bring down the signal 
strength ?  considering that there is no splicing done between the two 
ends, what is the kind of fiber loss should i be looking ?

Is there a matrix/table for distance v/s signal strength so that i can 
decide using attenuators whereever is required in the campus.

Appreciate any suggestions

Thanx
LP
