We are here to assist you in understanding the Telstra Wideband Testing requirements, providing specialised Test Equipment, Safety equipment, and
Tools to perform works on Fibre and Data infrastructure and Networks for the Telstra Wideband contract.
TMG has supplied over million+ of solutions to Australia's Telecommunication Contractors for the Installation and Maintenance of Telstra Copper Telephone lines, ADSL & VDSL services, and FTTP (Fibre-to-the-Premises).
Telstra Wideband is an umbrella of Telecommunication construction works undertaken by Australia's Contractors to deliver Telstra's products and services to their retail and wholesale business customers including Voice, Data and IP.
Optical fibre is utlised to deliver the "back bone" of most of Telstra's services, including providing the Backhauls ("data pipes") to Telstra's 4G and 5G mobile network, along with WAN Ethernet/Internet to Telstra's Business customers.
The types of construct works include, but not limited to;
These tests must include testing at both 1550nm and 1625nm wavelengths, and in both directions from A->B and B->A.
Fibre Acceptance Testing is required following installation and/or repair
Summary:Test Required: OTDR TracesWavelengths: 1550nm 1625nmDirection: Bidirectional (A->B and B->A)
Presented by Darren Harris (TMG), he will demonstrate how to use the VIAVI Fibre Complete OTDR to carry out different Bidirectional Tests required for Telstra Wideband such as Insertion Loss, Optical Return Loss and OTDR
You will learn how to set up the Instruments and store the results.
These tests must include testing the fibre at both 1310nm, 1550nm and (sometimes) 1625nm wavelengths, and in both directions from A->B and B->A.
Summary:Test Required: Insertion LossWavelengths: 1310nm 1550nm (Sometimes 1625nm is also required)Direction: Bidirectional (A->B and B->A)
Telstra recommends that if a single person is carrying out the test then Automatic Bidirectional Loss Testers should be used which has a Power Meter and Light Source to void repeated back and forth travel between sites.
Both the VIAVI MTS-4000 FibreComplete Platform and the Kingfisher KI73410nC Bidrectional Loss Tester will be able to perform these Automated Bidirectional Insertion Loss tests.

OTDR Selection Guide
Key Features Include:
In Telstra's Wideband Fibre Acceptance Testing, Bidirectional OTDR testing is performed using an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) to
characterise the optical link at both 1550nm and 1625nm wavelengths.
An OTDR sends thousands of pulses of light into a fibre at these wavelengths to create a Trace. This trace shows "events" in optical cable, relating to optical length, splice loss, and "macro bending".
So why test at both 1550nm and 1625nm wavelengths?By comparing the Trace of the 1550nm and 1625nm this highlights macro bending. Macrobend loss refers to losses induced in bends in the fibre predominately caused when manipulating
the physical fibre inside splice closures.
For more detailed information, we would recommend reading "Macrobend Detection Using an OTDR"

Launch leads are an essential accessory to be used with the OTDR when testing a Fibre Network.
The launch lead places the Fibre under test far enough from the connector of the OTDR to prevent any errors caused by a possible dead zone.
For Telstra a minimum of 1,000 metre Fibre Launch Lead must be used
The PH Palden xxxxxxx is an ideal 1,000 m long launch lead with SC/A Singlemode connectors for your Telstra OTDR testing needs
The VIAVI MTS-2000 Tri-band OTDR includes 1310nm, 1550nm & 1625nm wavelengths to meet both NBN and Telstra OTDR fibre testing requirements.
90% of faults in the fibre network are caused by bad connections.
These bad connections are usually caused by a bad splice or a contaminated connector (fibre end face). It is vital; that the female and male side of all fibre connectors are cleaned and inspected - whether they are new
or old fibre/connectors - before mating together or irreversible damage is caused causing more time and money to resolve.
The P5000i makes it fast and easy to certify that every connection in your network is clear and optimized
Easily connect to an OLP-87 PON Meter, MTS-2000 or MTS-4000 OTDR, HST-3000, ONX-580, ONX-620/630 or laptop/PC via USB without the need for any additional adapters.

What lurks underground?
When commissioning and maintaining telecommunications infrastructure buried underground, Occupational Heath and Safety challenges occur.
There are three primary purposes of Pipe & Cable Locating
One of the most under-utilised features of a pipe & cable locator is finding and isolating blockages when cable hauling. When you are in the situation whereby you are unable to clear the blockage with your heavy duty rodder
By using a Rodder with a Tracer Wire connected to the Radiodetection Transmitter (and
reeled to the blockage within the conduit) you can then use your receiver to find the end of the rodder which determines where the blockage is exactly.... saves you digging unnecessary holes to clear the blockage.
