Fiber Optics for Utilities Level 3


This one-day technical primer focuses on dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) systems and transmission impairments such as PMD and CD that limit the bandwidth and operating rates of fiber optic transmission systems. The course will give participants a solid understanding of how this technology works from theory to applications with special emphasis fiber dispersion limits and DWDM system design considerations.

The course is intended for those involved in the design, administration, operation, and supervision of advanced utility fiber optic networks such as high-speed, long distance, and WDM systems.

Course Level

Intermediate to expert. This course requires basic knowledge of fiber optic theory, as well as field experience, equivalent formal training such as the Fiber Optics 1-2-3 course, or viewing Light Brigade’s staff development videos (available online or as DVDs).
