By attending this two-day, comprehensive course in fiber optic communications, you will be able to learn the fundamental aspects and components of fiber optic networks - including fiber as the transmission medium, transmission systems and other components that compliment optical fiber in a network. With these essentials, you will develop a comprehensive understanding of the components of a fiber optic communication network, including the products, specifications and the international standards associated with the products. With your comprehensive knowledge of the products and specification options, you will be ready to contribute to the design, implementation and maintenance of these networks.

You will learn to establish the requirements and specifications that result in proper optical performance and reliable network operation. You will learn different requirements and products for different network applications - from terrestrial long haul, to metropolitan to access and to premises networks.

Who Should Attend?

Engineers, Managers and anyone else responsible for or interested in designing reliable and cost-effective fiber optic networks.


No pre-requisite required but some elements of the course are advanced and require a strong background in the sciences, engineering or mathematics.
