Fiber Characterization Fundamentals
This two-day instructor-led course focuses on the principles behind building and maintaining high-speed optical networks where key parameters such as polarization mode dispersion and chromatic dispersion must be calculated to evaluate system capabilities and potential upgrades to higher bit rates.
Audience: Those involved with equipment or systems where fiber characterization is needed to ensure proper operation of 10 Gb/s or higher data rates
Prerequisite: Previous experience with fiber optics and some knowledge of OTDR testing
Course Level: Intermediate to expert
Course Length: 2 days: one day of classroom learning and one day of hands-on skills training
Certification: Light Brigade Certificate of Completion
