Air Blown Fiber Workshop

This two-day course workshop focuses on installation, maintenance, and machine operation for those interested in learning the basics of air blown fiber (ABF) technology or that have recently purchased blowing equipment and want to learn how and why to use it. The primary focus of the content is aimed at OSP/FTTx installations; however, the basic principles can be applied equally to indoor applications and campus installations.

The course is a mix of classroom theory and hands-on skills exercises that relate to the learned theory. Subjects covered include an overview of air blown fiber technology consisting of terminology, components and equipment, best practices, setup, teardown, safety, communication, and various blowing techniques. In the hands-on skills exercises, attendees will gain practical experience with calculating fill ratios, duct and microduct joining, proper lubrication methods, duct cleaning and preparation tests, as well as machine setup and blowing microcables and fiber units.
