Get ahead of the competition with Connectix Online Training Sessions
The theory element of PON is available now as ‘instructor led’ online with a separate course available in the future for ‘hands on’ work.
This course is ideal for PM’s, Directors, Estimators and Engineers who already have a good knowledge of Copper and Fibre structured cabling systems but who have not had any experience or exposure to passive optical networks (PON) including GPON and Firs. These cabling systems are becoming more prevalent now in Hotels, Student Accomodatation as well as Apartments, Healthcare and of course FTTH (with some exposure directly into the enterprise). Without an understanding of the way things ‘fit together’ it is not possible to accurately design or cost a project. This course will give both background and understanding.
Passive Optical Networks are becoming more and more common after originally starting in the ‘fibre to the home’ arena.
The design criteria is much the same for Fibre IRS (Sat/TV over fibre) as well as GPON.
PON can and is being deployed in Hotels, Student Accomodation, Apartment Blocks, Hospitals and other large campus environments due to its space saving, power saving, cost saving and environmentally advantageous benefits.
The Connectix PON Course provides delegates with the theoretical knowledge needed to successfully deploy PON systems.
Coverage of typical LAN applications and their specific requirements will provide delegates with the confidence to specify the correct type of fibre and components for an intended application.
Features & Benefits:
The Connectix PON Course is a 3.5 hour course with the following key elements (many more than this):
Introduction to Connectix
Overall, the course aims to give the theory elements needed to understand what passive optical networks are about.
This course requires a basic prior knowledge of fibre optics (for example, the key parts of a fibre and the differences between multimode and singlemode and the idea of transmitting at certain wavelengths). The Connectix Fibre Part One Theory course is more than adequate but alternate knowledge is acceptable.
A further course will be available towards the end of the year which will focus on ‘hands on’ face to face training on both passive and active components (ie building a small network).
The course is run by a fully qualified Connectix Cabling Systems trainer who is well versed in PON installations and is constantly updated in line with the rapidly changing standards, technologies and terminologies.
Questions during the course are actively encouraged.
