Certified Optical Network Associate (CONA)

This course provides an introduction to optical networking and the types of systems that are in widespread commercial deployment. You will learn how to design, plan and implement cost-effective optical networks. The course focuses on networks that use either single channel per fibre, or multiple channels using CWDM and DWDM technology, providing typically up to 10 or 25Gb/s per channel and up to 80 channels per fibre. This may include metro or core networks, mobile backhaul/FTTA, Data Centre Interconnect (DCI) or dark fibre links and long haul systems that also use fibre amplifiers. You will learn what is required for satisfactory system performance of such networks and how the performance can be affected by the properties and the quality of the physical fibre infrastructure including such issues as attenuation, chromatic dispersion and polarisation mode dispersion (PMD).

Duration: 5 days

Certification: Certified Fibre Optical Network Associate
