Identify Optical Fibre

  • Course Overview

Optical fibre communication has proven its credibility when it comes to the ever-evolving applications and use case scenarios over other transport media. This course takes the participants through the whole concept of identification of optical fibres for the intended application. It starts with comparing the various types of optical fibres based on modes of propagation and material. It then explains the concepts of fibre optics, specific use cases of different spectrum bands used in optical fibre communication. This course also lists the applications of optical fibres in fixed access and mobile networks.
