Course Description

Because of high speed access requirements on the subscriber sites, we are at the edge of the copper days. Especially with new FTTx technologies; optical access networks are main investments on Telecom and service provider networks. Optical Networks installations and maintenance needs much more knowledge and hands on experience compared to copper networks. This program concentrates on giving all necessary knowledge base and hands on practice for technicians who will work on Optical Networks. 

 Note:"The minimum number of participants to conduct this course is 3 person"
