You'd be surprised. I recently dealt with a gentleman who built his
campus fiber plant expecting to configure end-to-end fiber paths using
mechanical connectors along the way. "Maximum acceptable loss on a
fiber segment is anound 10db, right, so with each of these 6 segments
in the threes we should be OK right? Well hold on, let me go to the
next building and clean the connector."
