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 course program concentrates on giving all necessary knowledge base and hands on practice for technicians, enginneer and administrator who will work on Optical Networks. How to use and maintain the instrument to obtain optimum results as quickly and efficiently as possible. After getting this course, participants could prove their technical know–how and ability on optical networks within their career development.This course is designed to provide necessary information and practice for such activities.
