Fiber Optics for Wireless
This four-day instructor-led introductory course provides the foundation needed to understand fiber optic applications and challenges in the FTTA/cell site space. This course examines how fiber works and the fundamentals of different fibers, cables, connectors, and other hardware used in fiber optic communication networks. All of this is with a focus on FTTA and small cell network applications. After learning the basics and the nuances of fiber within wireless networks, attendees will build skills and best practices in hands-on labs for fiber splicing, cable preparation, OTDRs, and optical loss testing.
Audience: Installers, design engineers, project managers, field engineers, or anyone who is managing or installing fiber for an FTTA/cell site
Prerequisite: Fiber Foundations recommended, but not required
Course Level: Introductory to intermediate. Beginners to experienced fiber technicians find the class and extensive hands-on skills training beneficial
Course Length: 4 days: two days of classroom learning and two days of hands-on skills training
