GPON for Mobile Backhaul

Duration: 2 days
Course description:
As mobile networks migrate from 2G to 3G to 4G/LTE, there is an increasing demand for more bandwidth on the backhaul links between base stations and the network edge. Since cellsize is decreasing and fiber is driven deeper into the network, an attractive option is then to use GPON as a backhauling technology to/from base stations. This course provides an overview of the backhaul, its evolution, and discusses the backhaul solutions with GPON.

Who would benefit:
Telecom professionals

Mobile sites categories
Backhaul requirements for 2G/3G/4G/LTE
Mobile Backhaul Evolution
Backhaul Solutions with GPON
Backhaul scenarios o Site categorization
Backhaul network selection

Optical Distribution Network (ODN)

Duration: 2 days
Course description:
The ODN provides the optical channel between OLT and ONT to communicate with each other. ODN is the main component of the FTTH network construction, and therefore, it directly affects the total cost, system performance, reliability and the upgrade potential. This course will provide the participants with the comprehensive knowledge of the basic concepts and technology of ODN.

Who would benefit:
Telecom professionals involved in design, development, operation, maintenance and planning of optical access networks

ODN Architecture
ODN Components
ODF/Patch Panels
AWG-Wavelength splitter
Feeder Cables
Fiber Distribution Hub (FDH
Floor Distribution Boxes
Rosette/Micro ODF
