Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes practical sessions and exercises where participants carryout fiber optic splicing, testing and troubleshooting. Theory learnt in the class will be applied using our state-of-the-art equipment. The rapidly changing face of data communications and telecommunications has seen a continued growth in the need to transfer enormous amounts of information across large distances. The technologies that were used extensively in the past such as coaxial cable, satellite and microwave radio for transferring information were running out of capacity. With the introduction of fiber optic communications systems, the solution to the problems of transmission capacity shortage and to noisy industrial environments has been successfully found. Fiber optic transmission has become one of the most exciting and rapidly changing fields in telecommunications engineering. An optical fiber is simply a very thin piece of glass which acts as a pipe, through which light can pass. The light that is passed down the glass fiber can be turned on and off to represent digital information or it can be gradually changed in amplitude, frequency or phase to represent analog information.Fiber optic transmission systems have many advantages over more conventional transmission systems. They are less affected by noise, do not conduct electricity and therefore provide electrical isolation, carry extremely high data transmission rates and carry data over very long distances. These and other advantages will be discussed in detail in this course. Fiber optic transmission systems are not perfect and there are difficulties involved in designing, implementing, and operating fiber optic communications systems. This course is designed to provide a thorough background to fiber optic communications systems and to illustrate the design and installation of these systems. The many pitfalls associated with the implementation of fiber optic systems will be discussed and workable solutions to these problems will be provided in this course. This course will provide an extensive overview of the construction, operation and applications of optical fiber, with more emphasis on installation and troubleshooting. The course will give both the novice and the experienced participant a solid grasp of the principles and practical implementation of fiber optic cabling for industrial applications. The course is designed to provide delegates with a detailed and up-to-date overview on the fiber optics access network planning. Participants will be provided with knowledge and skills to analyze optical fiber cables problems and adjust the splicing and termination of the optical fiber cables; employ optical fiber systems configurations and calculations; identify its components; evaluate optical fiber networks working in SDH; and follow the errors of the SDH networks. The course will also cover the SDH fundamentals graphical introduction; SDH fundamentals revision; SDH & PHD comparison; SDH overview; network topology structures, protection classification, directional and fiber protection; SDH networks problems and its solutions; SDH networks graphical introduction; and WDM. link to course overview PDF
