Optical stuff is not my day job, but so far it seems nice. Build quality is definitely up there. Got a couple of stubborn cards that dont seen to want to work though, and the guys I am working with tell me they had similar issues with a previous install they did.
It seems quite amazing to me that in this day, with alllll of the experience there must be designing and building this kind of equipment, there are still stupid issues and bugs. Its the one industry that never seems to learn from the past? lol
Ive done a bit of installation work of some optical systems and a little bit of operational maintenance on existing systems in my current job, but nothing with kit on this kind of scale.
This will probably just be a one off thing that I'll try and take in as much as I can from, then back to the real world.
