GPON-FTTH Planning & Optimization Etisalat Academy
  • Locations: Dubai
  • Duration: 5 Days

Course details

GPON-FTTH technology has become the logical choice for new access network build-outs and for the revamping of the existing ones. The optical distribution network (ODN) that connects the electronics at the customer site to the central office is most difficult and expensive to build, and once built, the most difficult to change. This course will provide the participants with the knowledge and skills required for careful planning and the evaluation of the different design options for passive ODN, to ensure successful service deployment and network evolution as services evolve and bandwidth needs grow.

Expected Accomplishments

  • Identify the components and operation ofGPON.
  • List the components and their variants used in the FTTH Network.
  • List different variants of optical power splitters and their uses.
  • Understanding Underground Et Overhead cabling standards methods
  • Analyze the demand forecast and come up with the required planning solution.
  • Design Et plan a PON-FTTH Network meeting the demands of the area as per Planning Guidelines and Formulae.
  • Apply the Formulae for Power Budget calculations.
  • Identify PON-FTTH outside Plant and Indoor Plant implementation issues and come up with solutions.
