“Fiber to the X” (FTTx) is the hottest network topic since TCP/ IP. In this course, we will discuss various network designs, installations, maintenance and troubleshooting. This is a three-day hands-on course designed to provide students with a practical understanding of FTTx networks. Students will learn the difference between an Active and a Passive Optical Network (PON). The advantages and disadvantages of each system and how they are currently being implemented in the field are featured in this course. Students will learn splicing, testing and installing techniques for an FTTx network. Course lectures must be taken on line.
Upon successful completion of the required on-line lectures and exams, the student will then attend the TR-FTTX Hands-on training sessions scheduled. The hands-on training session is required to complete the FTTX Installer Certification.
