Prerequisites

Methodology

The first part of this course consists of lectures and PowerPoint presentations, while the second part consists of specific hands-on testing exercises and experiments on critical parameters such as:

Construction

  • Bad connections
  • Macrobends
  • Bad splices

Activation

  • Bad connections at the drop terminal
  • Bad drop cables
  • Faulty ONT

Troubleshooting

  • Macrobends
  • Fiber breaks
  • Faulty splitter branches

In-field practice is also possible if the appropriate on-site resources are available.

Equipment

For the second part of this course, all equipment reviewed during this course — loss tests sets, FIP, OTDR and IP triple-play test set — must be made available at the trainee’s location. Rental arrangements can be made with EXFO if equipment is not available.

Documentation

Attendees will receive a binder containing copies of presentations and other handouts. An electronic version is also available if required.
