Optical Training


Optical Fiber Measurements and Splicing


Who should attend:

This course is intended for network planners and O&M technicians who need to know the new OTN standard to exploit the advantages that it brings in terms of provisioning and QoS.

An individual course planning is possible for this kind of course. If you would like to know more about this course please either call us on +43 (0)1 70795380 or send an email to info_at@flane.com.

SDH, ATM and IP networks basic skills.

Course Content

This course aims to provide trainees with the knowledge on OTN structure and functioning. The ITU-T G.709 transport hierarchy will be studied, with particular focus on the frame structure, the overhead features that support multi-wavelength networks and the client signals mapping. Moreover, this course highlights the dynamic bandwidth allocation at the transport layer using the GMPLS protocol.
