Wolfenstein 3D のゲームが大人気だった頃、当社は BICSI カンファレンスで Cat 5 リンクにノイズを引き起こすことで障害を発生させる試みを行いました。私たちは、蛍光灯安定器、大きな電動機、エンジンのかかった車の点火コイルの近くにケーブルを配置するなど、さまざまなやってはいけないことを試しましたが、それでもリンクはエラーフリー同然の 100BASE-TX パフォーマンスを提供しました。当時、ほとんどのケーブル敷設環境では、遮蔽付きのケーブルの利点はそれほどないように思われていました。
The 2017 BICSI Winter Conference wrapped up last week in Tampa where thousands of ICT professional from around the world had a chance to gain valuable industry knowledge and check out the latest products from nearly 180 vendors in the exhibit hall – including our new DSX-8000 CableAnalyzer.

Bidirectional testing used to involve testing the fiber from one end, walking the OTDR to the other end to test again and then averaging the two values to get the results—and it had to be done for each link.
