Main transmission parameters and measurement issues basic skills.

Course Content

This theoretical and practical course aims to transfer knowledge on the fiber optics basic theory, the light propagation principles, its characteristics and measurement methods. Furthermore, this training shows, through practical sessions, how to use the fusion splicer and the Mini OTDR for measurement, analysis and certification.

Course Objectives

Use of Virtual Labs to better understand the fiber real propagation phenomena. Laboratories with splicer and OTDR equipped with all necessary accessories, from the launch fiber spool to precision cutters, from pigtails to different test fibers.
