FTTH Network Overview

Course Description:

This program is specially designed for IT/Telecom professionals to understand the need of FTTX applications. Next generation networks are likely to need to deliver High Speed Internet. High Definition IPTV may require very high access bandwidth, so new installations will probably require fiber loops. There are many new options for loop and access aggregation network design. This course will look at the new fiber technologies now available, consider the advantages of each and provide an understanding of how a Next Generation Access network can take advantage of Ethernet over fiber options.

Target Audience:

The target audience for this course includes:

  • Field Engineers, BSS/Transmission Engineers
  • Configuration, Maintenance, Planning, Testing, Development Engineers
  • Leadership team and Senior Management
  • Customer Care, Sales, Non Network Team

Delivery Method:

The delivery will be instructor-led classroom training with extensive practical case studies, interactive discussions and Q&A / quiz sessions.
