Single mode optical fiber FTTx solutions for broadband access networks are in continuous expansion. Due to the lack of a robust mathematical model for accurately predicting bend losses under climatic fluctuations, it becomes necessary to characterize the fiber before its implementation. In this work we present a comprehensive characterization of ITU-T G.657 optical fiber for evaluating its potential implementation in the last mile of a generic broadband network. The results of the characterization process show that the fiber supports the most aggressive tests without exceeding the manufacturer limits. The measurements demonstrate the suitability of G-657 fiber for this application. I. INTRODUCTION HERE are several critical factors that affect optical power transmission through optical fibers in a Passive Optical Network (PON). During the last years, optical fibers and devices for implementing Fiber-to-the-x (FTTx) are receiving a growing interest. An exhaustive characterization of the optical fibers is essential for ensuring its suitability for a certain environment and variations of the working conditions.
