Course Overview:

This course shall provide the Attendees with a focus on the optimal manner in which to design outside plant (OSP) networks to provide service to the Subscribers.  It assumes the Attendees has a core knowledge of fiber optics, outside plant, and FTTX architecture, however shall conduct a baseline refresher on the topics.  Course will discuss in detail the manner in which optimal fiber-to-the-X (FTTX) networks are designed, based on a flexible growth pattern (take-rate), thus allowing for maximum optimization of optical distribution network (ODN) ports on the optical line terminal (OLT).  Course shall address different construction techniques and materials that are currently being use, as well as those technologies that are on the rise that could represent cost savings.

Who would benefit from this course:

  • FTTX Outside Plant Designers/Engineers
  • Municipalities considering FTTX within their community
  • FTTX Construction Inspectors
  • FTTX Construction Managers
  • FTTX Construction Contractors
