Fiber to the Home in Next Generation Networks
Next generation networks are likely to need to deliver High Speed Internet (HIS), Voice and IPTV. High Definition IPTV may require very high access bandwidth so new loop installations will probably require fiber loops. There are many new options for loop and access aggregation network design. This course will examine the new fiber technologies now available, consider the advantages of each and provide an understanding of how a Next Generation Access network can take advantage of Ethernet over fiber options.
Using an effective mix of “hands on” equipment instruction and correlation to theory based learning the delegate will gain a complete understanding of the equipment and the tasks to be undertaken in a real life situation.
When you have completed this course you will be able to:
- Describe the different fiber optic technologies available for Next Generation Loops
- Consider in detail the advantages of each technology
- Consider the sizing and design of a NGN access and aggregation network
- Select the appropriate Ethernet technology standards for deployment.
