The Fiber Optic Association, Inc. has released three fiber-optic technical bulletins aimed at manufacturers, resellers, contractors, installers, and users of fiber-optic communications systems. The documents were created to facilitate the process of designing, choosing, installing, and using such systems.
The bulletins are written in the form of guidelines or checklists for a reader to follow. The documents are provided as PDF documents, and are as follows:
"Designing and manufacturing fiber optic communications products."
"Choosing, installing and using fiber optic products for users."
"Troubleshooting fiber optic cable plants and communcations systems."
The FOA technical bulletins cover topics that have been the subject of the most common technical questions asked by those contacting the FOA. The FOA says the documents represent the combined wisdom of the organization's trainers and its boards of directors and advisors.
