Certified Optical Network Engineer (CONE)

The ever-insatiable demand for ultra-high capacity networks that deliver information across communities, national boundaries and across oceans is pushing the envelope on the capabilities of optical fiber systems. Understanding the limitations and how we can push the boundaries to enable higher capacity systems while ensuring highly scalable, reliable, low latency and energy efficient systems is critical.
This advanced course enables you to understand trends in higher speed transmission or 40Gbps, 100Gbps and beyond in core networks. This will help you determine how higher speed transmission requirements can be met by the systems you design.
You will learn the more advanced and latest technologies including coherent detection, polarization multiplexing, Flexigrid and next generation colorless directionless contentionless (CDC) reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers (ROADMs).

Who should take the course?
Cone is designed for network architects, core network designers, strategic network planners, transmission system engineers and photonic engineers.
