System Design

The Fiber School > Courses > System Design

Before fiber optic networks can be constructed, they must be properly designed and, once constructed, they must be managed. Efficiencies in these processes translate into lower cost layout and construction, more productive system migration and field operations, lower optical loss budget, and greater business profitability by bringing fiber to the desk.

The fiber optic network layout design plays an important role in error-free system reliability. Choice of the proper type of network layout depends on the type of process controlled, the possible need for expansion, and the degree of failure immunity desired–all of which must be balanced with cost considerations.
