Method used to obtain the attenuation of the optical cable between two sites based on optical power

You can calculate the attenuation roughly using the following formula:
Attenuation of the optical cable between two sites = (Transmit optical power of the OA board at the transmit-end site �?Receive optical power of the OA board at the receive-end site) �?Insertion loss of the FIU boards at both ends
