In this presentation I take a few minutes to review some of the more common physical layer issues I run into. Please note that these same topics apply to support, installation and design.
The key indirect point that I try to highlight is that some of these issues are not easily found sitting behind a keyboard and requires the analyst to get up and physically perform an inspection. I know, I know, what if that’s not practical and the network isn’t geographically close to you? No problem, simply have someone on site take some photos or a video and send it to you. Heck, now a video call with Skype or Google is practical.
As I mention at the end of the video, I hope this helps you with your day to day job.
