Fiber Installation & Activation

The NCTI Fiber Installation and Activation course provides indispensable and up-to-date information on the deployment of fiber-optic cable in broadband networks. The course outlines the basics of optical transmission, modulation and transport through optical fiber along with the reception and conversion of the optical signal back to electrical signals. The characteristics of different types of optical fiber and cable construction are introduced and described with explanations for their application. Fiber-optic network architecture, topology, design and construction practices are also covered. Fiber Installation and Activation instructs how to install and activate fiber-optic networks and also prepares the student to splice optical fibers using mechanical and fusion methods. Passive optical network (PON) access technologies utilizing fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) topologies, which include GPON, EPON, RFoG and next generation access (NGA) architectures, are described and compared. The course assumes previous knowledge and experience in RF Broadband Technology.
