we have a 7206vxr router with pa-pos-2oc3 and SFP-OC3-IR1-C. Our provider wants us to check transmitted and received power on the SFP.
I already looked around and know theres no way to check or adjust transmit power and saw its -15 to -8dbm on the datasheet.
Is there a way to check received power??

Solved! Go to Solution.
In your case, you will need a handheld meter. you will need to disconnect the fiber from the router and connect it to the meter.
take a look at fluke products....
VMiller thanks very much. this is an option but we were hoping there was an option that would allow us to continue using the link without having to schedule a maintenance windows.
sorry about the double post. I'd suggest (if you aren't doing this already) have a
meter and cleaning kit. every time you pop the jumpers off, clean them before you put them back on
it a good safe practice.
