White Paper: The Importance of Verifying a Reference Reflection for Accurate RL Measurements

Share This...


Despite improvements in network technologies, return loss in networks and data centers continues to be an issue that results in decreased performance. As a result, it is important that it be measured accurately and properly account for any loss between the meter and the connection under test. This white paper discusses the following:

  • The benefits of limiting reflectance in a network
  • The effects of loss on return loss accuracy
  • A solution to identifying lossy cable setups
  • The importance of wide dynamic range for return loss measurements
