October 1, 2013 – Tukwila, WA – Light Brigade continues to expand its class offering to the FTTx community. The new FTTx Outside Plant Design course was created for those who need in-depth skills for designing an effective FTTx network.

This three-day class has been developed with 16 hours of classroom lecture and 8 hours of hands-on design exercises to teach attendees to apply critical issues such as customer take rate and density to outside plant design. This course covers FTTH network field configurations, design benchmarks, and installation parameters for high-rise buildings, campus style apartments, single family urban residential areas, and rural areas for active Ethernet and PON systems. Attendees will create their own FTTx network designs in classroom break-out sessions, applying the learned objectives to distributed split, centralized split, home run, and point-to-point systems.

Already in place is the Light Brigade’s highly successful “Certified Fiber to the Home Professional” (CFHP) course, a two-day program that prepares planners, supervisors, and project managers with the knowledge they need to install and maintain FTTH and FTTB networks. The CFHP course is available as both a classroom event, or, for those in remote locations, as a self-contained online training program. The Light Brigade’s “FTTx for Installers and Technicians” course teaches the hands-on skills needed to install, test, and repair the FTTx system.

Light Brigade will teach a six-hour primer on the new FTTx Outside Plant Design program on Wednesday, October 2 at the 2013 FTTH Conference & Expo and will be teaching the two-day CFHP course in Tampa immediately following the conference on October 2-3, 2013.
