Fiber Optic Strategies

An independent resource for your fiber optic program

Technology Assessments
Fiber Optic 

The implementation of fiber optics involves an understanding from components through systems.  With our expertise FiberStory can assist you reviewing your networks, staff and equipment.  We focus on the technology, the current physical plant, your applications, and how to migrate to address current and future technologies. 


Examples could include Emergency restoration postures, FTTx designs and future migrations, analysis of your physical plant, out of band maintenance options and addressing advanced DWDM and high speed networks.

Mr. Johnson Founder of The Light Brigade and FiberStory has wriitten over 25 fiber optic courses inclding those for the Telephony, CATV, Internet, Oil, Gas, Mining, Traffic systems, Utility, Military industries and fiber optic manufacturers.


Having traveled to over 50 countries and writing over twenty fiber optic courses I've learned that each can be unique in the implementation of fiber optic networks.  Applying international standards and understanding the various challenges unique to the location your organization needs is critical to provide a fiber optic training program suited for your needs.  FiberStory can provide or access industry specialists to provide you with your training needs.

Writing technical content requires attention to detail and an understanding of fiber optics from



I've written over twenty five courses on fiber optics, several books and industry and skill certifications for the FTTH/FBA Council, Utility Telecom Council, and Electronics Technicians Association.   In addition, writing articles for major publications plus work with various standards groups including ANSI, and the TIA.

FiberStory can be a resource for your needs, whether writing procedures, providing reviews or assisting with webinars.  Drop us a message with your request.

and Speaking

Webinars provide an excellent tool to teach about products, technologies and challenges.  Over the years I've developed and delivered over thirty webinars addressing simple to complex topics.  If you need to have a webinar customized, I can assist with the process.  I have delivered over 100 speeches at  industry conferences and corporate events. I have a passion for this industry and can address past, present and future topics involved with fiber optic technology.  

Video Production

Having worked with videographers and animators since 1990 we have the expertise to produce content whether a simple graphic for a complex issue, or an animation showing those difficult to understand subjects or full length productions.

Customized productions have been developed for organizations and manufacturers.  Contact us for your educational and training needs.


If it involves fiber optics, FiberStory can be a resource for your needs.  I've learned through the decades that not every application is "cookie cutter" and needs its own review.  Past expertise includes the original Microsoft campus design (14,000 fibers in 1989), traffic management systems for ITS systems, quality control programs for major (56K fiber installation), submarine landing sites , rail plow QC,  Medical fiber optics and sensing content.  

Writing and/or reviewing operations manuals along with reviewing bid documents for technical clarity and accuracy are a few examples.

Teaching a certified fiber to the home (CFHP) professional course in the Middle East.  In this case the environment, building structure and the use of International standards were emphasized for the clients needs.  The CFHP course was one of many written by Larry Johnson.
