Gigabit Ethernet Training (TR-GBE)

Course Information

Gigabit Ethernet training by The Fiber School provides students with a detailed understanding of the capabilities of Gigabit Ethernet. Intended for Sales Engineers, Testers, Installers, Managers and other professionals, this course is useful for those who need to plan, design, implement and test the new generation of Ethernet.

This is an area that is growing rapidly within the telecommunications industry. Over the next several years, enterprises are gearing up to adopt Gigabit Ethernet as a switch-to-switch interconnect technology. Potentially, Gigabit Ethernet can also be used for long-distance backbone connections in large campuses, or for building out MANs where dark fiber is available.
