You’ve seen the signs in any public restroom stating something to the effect of “If you work here, you’d better be washing your hands or else!” You wouldn’t want to risk spreading, or catching, any unpleasant bugs so handwashing should be automatic, it should really be second nature to wash your hands!
Well inspecting your fiber connectors should be as well! You should never, ever, break a fiber connection unless you have the following:
- A Fiber Inspection Microscope
- Cleaning sticks/wipes/solution
If the thought of contaminating or damaging a fiber connection isn’t even enough for you…perhaps this picture of an actual fiber monster will help!
