Fibre Optic Access Networks

Course Code: TE103


Upon successful completion of this course, participants will understand the underlying principles and concepts of local access technologies using optical fibre and data transmission over fibre. This course also helps participants understand optical networking elements and solutions.

Key topics

  • Overview of data transmission over fibre
  • Introduction to optical networking
  • Basic optical networking elements: fibre optic cable, optical couplers, transmitters and receivers, optical amplifiers, optical cross-connects and optical add/drop multiplexers
  • Optical transmission performance parameters
  • Advantages of fibre optic systems
  • Fibre optic access technologies: fibre to the home (FTTH), fibre to the building (FTTB), fibre to the curb (FTTC)
  • Configuration: active and passive hybrid cables
  • FTTH passive optical network
  • Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) passive optical network (aPON), Ethernet PON (ePON)
  • ITU-T G.983 standard.

Target audience

Technical staff involved in optical fibre access network design, operation, monitoring, administration and maintenance, especially those involved in broadband access network management areas.
