A Comparison of Impairment Abstractions by Multiple Users of an Installed Fiber Infrastructure


We compare three independent impairment abstractions of an installed fibre infrastructure. Abstractions agreed to within 1.3dB despite being obtained from different nodes using different terminal equipment. Validation using a DWDM virtual topology was within 1.4dB.
