Optical Transmission Planning and Dimensioning

Course Objectives:

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the key optical fibre terminologies
  • Comprehend the fundamentals of fibre optics systems
  • Appreciate DWDM technologies
  • Identify applications of optical networks (current and future)
  • Design optical network systems

Course Overview:

This course provides participants with a comprehensive technical foundation of the architectures, technologies and networking elements that are associated with the deployment of evolving Optical Transport Networks (OTN).

It includes optical components, optical link budgets, optical amplifiers, WDM optical networks and optical applications in cellular networks.

The course involves a refresh of fiber optics technologies and also considers the future market trends of emerging optical networks.

Optical Transport Networks have key roles to play in today’s telecommunications environment but their importance will grow in the future as consumer demand for services changes dramatically e.g. Internet of Everything, big data, 5G mobile backhaul.

Participants will participate in Workshops and learn how to design, plan and dimension a basic OTN.

Pre-Requisite for Participants:

Knowledge of the principles of telecommunication transmission systems.
Prior attendance at Course C1: SDH/DWDM Fundamentals is highly desirable.

Who Should Attend?

This course provides a general design overview for Fiber core network planners, technicians and supervisors, strategic or technical managers, consultants, communications professionals, system engineers, marketing and sales personnel and others who plan on using, evaluating, designing or working with optical transport networks.

This course acts as a pre-cursor to Course C4: DWDM and optical networking for Metro and Long Haul.

Course Duration:

3 days.

Course Outlines:

  • Optical transmission networks (overview)
  • Transmission rates hierarchy
  • Network topologies
  • Fiber optics (refresher)
  • Optical transmitters
  • Optical receivers

  • Noise characteristics in optical receivers
  • Optical amplifiers
  • Optical link design
  • WDM optical networks
  • Optical networks in cellular environments
  • Planning and Dimensioning Workshops
