Learning Objectives of Module 1 are:
- Analyze signal distortion between transmitter and receiver in a simple fiber-optic point-to-point link with respect to attenuation and pulse dispersion.
- Do a qualitative estimation of the maximum transmission distance L at a given signal data rate.
- Do a quantitative characterization of the signal detection process and definition of the minimal detectable optical power for a particular type of signal distortion with respect to a detection error criterion.
- Understand optical system components with typical specifications and applications.
Optical fibers are used to transmit information over long distances. Fiber-based systems have largely replaced radio transmitter systems for long-haul data transmission. They are widely used for telephony, Internet traffic, long high-speed local area networks (LANs), cable TV (CATV), and increasingly also for shorter distances within buildings.
The capacity of fibers for data transmission is huge: a single silica fiber can carry hundreds of thousands of telephone channels
Fiber-optic cables are immune to problems that arise with electrical cables, such as ground loops or electromagnetic interference (EMI)
Optical Fiber Networks are the future of today and tomorrow because of the mind-boggling data rate offered, in this first module of the course student will become expert in link design
Learning Objectives of Module 2 are:
- Study the troubleshooting instruments:
- Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) and
- Fusion Splicer
- Analyze and correct the faults in Fiber Optics Networks using OTDR and Fusion Splicer. Important instruments in optical link maintenance are discussed in this module with an online demonstration so that students will get practical experience and learn how to use this equipment for network maintenance.
Who this course is for:
- Beginner fiber optic network technicians
