An interlaboratory measurement comparison to determine optical fiber attenuation, bandwidth, and N.A. was conducted by the National Bureau of Standards (NBSII). Participants include several U.S. fiber and cable manufacturers, one Canadian manufacturer, and NBS. The purpose of the comparisons is to gather information on measurements when participants follow the same procedures. The procedures used for attenuation and N.A. are currently pending before the Electronics Industry Association Committee P6.6.
