14 Jan OTT Optical Network Training Events from FiberGuide for H1 2024
We are thrilled to announce the 2024 schedule for OTT optical network training events by FiberGuide has been unveiled. These events, taking place in Arlington and McLean, VA during the first half of the year, offer open enrollment to all interested individuals. The 5-day training programs, Certified Optical Network Associate (CONA) and Certified Optical Network Engineer (CONE), aim to equip both aspiring and seasoned optical network engineers with essential skills for success in the evolving communications landscape.
FiberGuide, in partnership with Optical Technology Training (OTT), is renowned for its optical network and fiber optic training. Among the popular OTT optical network courses offered through FiberGuide are the foundational CONA and the advanced CONE courses.
The introductory CONA course is tailored for optical network planners, project managers, and professionals in optical network operations. Covering fundamental aspects of fiber optic communications, CONA includes topics like introductory fiber optics and transmission systems based on direct detection technology. The course delves into single-channel networks and multiple-channel networks such as SWDM, LAN-WDM, CWDM, and DWDM, highlighting practical applications like 5G transport, data center interconnects, and long-distance networks. CONA training events feature important case studies, providing attendees with a deep understanding of network quality requirements and effective solutions for fiber optic impairments, including chromatic dispersion, PMD, and non-linear effects.
For professionals aspiring to elevate their expertise in optical networking, the highly recommended choice is the OTT Certified Optical Network Engineer course. This comprehensive program takes participants well beyond the fundamentals covered in CONA, delving into the intricate realm of coherent detection and digital signal processing and their profound effects on high-performance optical communication networks.
This advanced training curriculum is laser-focused on achieving higher data rates per channel, encompassing speeds of 100Gb/s, 400Gb/s, 800Gb/s, 1.6Tb/s, and beyond. Delegates not only gain insights into these elevated data rates but also acquire the knowledge to upgrade direct detection systems to operate seamlessly at these advanced speeds.
The CONE course places a spotlight on the crucial interaction between optical and electronic technologies that paves the way for achieving such unprecedented data rates. Additionally, participants explore the realm of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and its transformative impact on open systems, including open line systems, open Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexers (ROADMs), and white box solutions.
It’s crucial to highlight that both OTT CONA and CONE courses are meticulously crafted by Optical Technology Training (OTT) and are disseminated globally through various partners, among them FiberGuide. Serving as one of the two licensed entities delivering OTT training programs in North America, FiberGuide takes pride in its role, emphasizing a dedicated commitment to fostering skill development in the realm of optical communications.
This collaboration has proven highly effective in cultivating the essential skills required by optical communication engineers worldwide. The partnership between OTT and FiberGuide stands as a testament to the successful synergy between industry leaders, contributing significantly to the advancement of expertise and knowledge in optical communications on a global scale.
FiberGuide offers two training models, open enrollment classes in McClean and Arlington, or closed classes for corporations at their locations. You can contact us to arrange for training at your location.
