For numerous applications and in many environments, optical fiber’s information-carrying capacity makes it the medium of choice or of necessity. Whether it is a service-provider network bringing broadband access to residences, or a local area network (LAN) with long-distance and high-throughput demands, fiber-optic cabling meets the systems’ high-performance requirements. In 2023 and beyond, it is imperative for practitioners in the information and communications technology (ICT) industry to obtain the skills and knowledge required to deploy fiber-optic cabling systems successfully. This webcast seminar, hosted by Cabling Installation & Maintenance, will provide practical information for installers and technicians who work with fiber, hands-on, in the field.The seminar will include three presentations. The first presentation will focus on the installation of fiber- optic cabling in service provider networks, with an emphasis on the preparation and termination of the optical fiber. This presentation will include an explanation of how a service provider’s choice of tools/technologies can enable flexibility as opposed to vendor lock-in. The second presentation will address the LAN environment, and the growing need for high-density fiber termination and management. It will discuss the technology landscape for high-density solutions and discuss pros and cons of the available options. The third presentation will address post-installation troubleshooting of fiber-optic systems. It will outline the tools available for troubleshooting in different network types, and follow up with a step-by-step examination of the troubleshooting process.Attendees of this webcast seminar will gain insight into some of the finer points of fiber-optic network deployment. Regardless of the environment in which the attendee works with fiber (fiber-to-the-home, data center, enterprise LAN), the practical information in this seminar will equip any ICT professional with knowledge that can make their next fiber project a more-efficient one.
