Certified FTTX Specialized Installer – (TR-FTTX)

Course Information

“Fiber to the X” (FTTx) is the hottest network topic since TCP/IP. In this course we discuss various network designs, installations, maintenance and troubleshooting. This is a hands-on, 3-day course designed to provide students with a practical understanding of FTTx networks. FTTx Installer students will learn the difference between an Active and a Passive Optical Network (PON). The advantages and disadvantages of each system and how they are currently being implemented in the field are featured in this course. Students will learn splicing, testing and installing techniques for an FTTx network.
