Fiber Optic System Design is the title of a DVD available from The Light Brigade. The menu-based DVD demonstrates how to design fiber-optic transmission systems for LANs, MANs and WANs. It covers physical layout, component integration and loss-budget calculation.
Organized into chapters, the DVD includes emphasis on factors that can degrade signal quality, such as attenuation, dispersion in singlemode fibers, and bandwidth limitations in multimode fibers. The design processes discussed range from point-to-point networks, to far more complex DWDM, ROADM and FTTH/FTTB systems.
Among the materials on the DVD are a student quiz written in Microsoft Word so that it can be customized.
