    General Laser Safety Guidelines

    When working around the services gateway, observe the following safety guidelines to prevent eye injury:

    • Do not look into unterminated ports or at fibers that connect to unknown sources.
    • Do not examine unterminated optical ports with optical instruments.
    • Avoid direct exposure to the beam.

      Warning: Unterminated optical connectors can emit invisible laser radiation. The lens in the human eye focuses all the laser power on the retina, so focusing the eye directly on a laser source—even a low-power laser—could permanently damage the eye.
