Re: [FiOS] Frontier came a-knocking on our door
It is. If the laser isn't coming in clean enough or is too dim the equipment on either end will not work properly. It usually means there's leakage in the cable, it's a very long run past what the lasers can handle and it's not being amplified, or the fiber is bent too sharply some place. It could also mean the fiber is broken some place but not exposed.
Sounds like sales contractors working the door to door rounds. Maybe his round about way of making a sales pitch, who knows - but it's not true that Frontier is doing any work to make any "adjustments" in the field.
Fios is a PON. As in Passive. There is nothing to adjust in the field. The light leaves all of the Central Offices at the same levels.
