Gospel appointments are the single most effective means of creating relational and intentional evangelistic opportunities.
Are you managing a fiber project and want to understand what is involved? Does your organization use fiber optics and you'd like to know more about how it works?
This short introductory lesson from Fiber U is intended for you. Not too technical, just an overview, but a good starting place for everyone interested in fiber optics. Study the reference materials and test your comprehension with the online quizzes.
Designed as How to prepare for a part preparation for those taking the CFOT Certification directly or planning to attend an FOA-approved course and want to prepare ahead of time. Additional reading is included for advanced study. Complete the course and you can take the Fiber U Certificate of Completion exam.
In this course we use FOA YouTube Videos and "Virtual Hands-On" tutorials to give you step by step instructions and lots of hints on how to prepare cables, splice, terminate and test them. This course is designed for those who have already completed the Basic Fiber Optics course, have access to equipment and a variety of components and want to learn the processes of fiber optic installation on their own.
Outside Plant OSP C onstruction FOA has extensive training programs and certifications on all aspects of fiber optic cable plant design, installation, testing and operation, but most of the outside plant OSP programs like the one below begin at the point of preparing the cable for splicing, termination or testing.
This program takes a step back and looks at the process of construction of the cable plant up to the point of installing the cable for underground, direct buried and aerial installations.
Complete the course and case study and you can take the Fiber U Certificate of Completion exam. This 6 part series of lessons covers the full scope of fiber optic testing, one of the most complex topics in fiber optics. We've divided the course into lessons that cover an overview of fiber optic testing, test tools and instruments, visual testing, insertion loss, OTDRs and a catch-all final lesson covering a number of other topics.
We use the FOA YouTube Videos for most of the lessons plus pages from our online guide to provide the basic materials for study but we also provide links to many additional topics that may apply to your particular applications.
For those just interested in OTDRs, there is a separate program on that subject below.
OTDRs are valuable test tools but require more depth of understanding to use properly. This self-study program will review fiber optic testing, look at how OTDRs work and how their test data is analyzed.
It also explains testing artifacts like "gainers" and "ghosts" that can be very confusing. It's not how to create drawings! It's about how to evaluate customer needs for communications links, choose equipment, design the cable plant, choose components, create a plan, manage the install and finish the paperwork.
The final lesson is 9 case studies of various networks where you have to make the right choices. Cellular wireless is looking at upgrades to 5G technology, small cells and video streaming.
WiFi is reaching gigabit speeds for enterprise LANs, being deployed in many metro areas and even being used for line-of-sight links in rural areas. All these applications depend on fiber optics for backbones. This course is aimed at communications managers and fiber optic contractors who want an overview of how wireless technologies depend on fiber optics and how to implement these systems.
While most antennas are outdoors, most call originate from indoors. While everyone expects cellular connections everywhere, signals have trouble getting inside large buildings, mass transit tunnesl, etc. The solution to both problems is to install distributed antenna systems that provide adequate coverage no matter how big the crowd or where they are.
Towers that one had 3 antennas now have a dozen or more. Connecting to those antennas from the base of the tower with traditional coax cables required too much weight and wind resistance for the tower, not to mention cost, so digital systems using fiber optic cables have been replacing the coax.
This Fiber U course covers the equipment mounted on cell towers,how cabling connects them and how those cables are installed and tested.
There are many different viewpoints on how data center cabling should be designed and installed, depending on the point of view. Fiber U takes a unbiased viewpoint to try to understand how users are actually building data centers and creates a short self-study program that can provide a better basis for understanding this important cabling application.
Take this course and you will learn about all the options for FTTx, what network architectures look like, what standards exist, and get an overview of how they are installed and tested. A final session will cover design of FTTx and give you a design exercise to complete.
This course is designed for everyone interested in FTTx. Those new to fiber optics or in management roles can use this course to familiarize themselves with FTTx technologies, while those with fiber backgrounds will learn how to implement FTTx from this course.
OLANs have been covered extensively in the trade press and are being promoted by many vendors, so there is plenty of interest in learning more about them.
This course will provide an overview of the three types of optical LANs, their advantages over traditional LANs and how to design, install and test them. Get a "Certificate of Completion" for taking Fiber U online self-study programs.May 31, · Part 1.
