Fiber Estimated Attenuation Per Map Unit

TIP: This domain is not required but it provides a location to enter an attenuation loss factor for distance traveled, as attenuation is the rate at which the signal light decreases in intensity. This factor can be calculated with the assistance of an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) trace or inputted using industry estimated standards.
