Method used to calculate the optical cable attenuation between WDM equipment

The attenuation of an optical cable between WDM equipment can be calculated using the following formula:
Optical cable attenuation = Difference between the transmit optical power of one OA board and the receive optical power of the peer OA board �?(Insertion loss of the two FIU boards in the middle + Attenuation of the optical attenuator)
