The Association lists common questions that many people have about fiber optic installations, and it also helps users to find out about important topics concerning fiber optics. The first question that the FOA answers is if fiber optics should even be used as the communications system in a building.
From this self-study program you should learn: What is involved in designing a fiber optic network How to choose components appropriate for communications systems How the proposed routing of the cable plant affects component choice and installation Using loss budgets to ensure the communications systems will work over the fiber optic proposed cable plant How to determine what should be tested and documented What paperwork and documentation will be needed for the project How to create a plan to install the project How to manage the installation This self-study program is designed to introduce the student to the process of fiber optic network design and the implementation of that design in a real world project.
Before any fiber optic project is started, it is necessary to know what communications systems or networks will be needed by the user and which locations the cable plant will connect. With that information, the designer can begin investigating what communications equipment will be necessary and the routing of the link, deciding what installation type and components like cable and hardware are appropriate and what processes will be used for the installation.
This self-study program will cover these topics for both premises and outside plant OSP fiber optic installations. While we find many people think of "design" as drawing or CAD, that is not covered in this course.
Certainly it is important to create good drawings as part of the documentation for a project, but that follows what is included here: Designers need to know how to create drawings as well as other project paperwork, but there is so much variation in how that part of the project is done - whether manual drawing or computer graphics - we leave that to each individual student.
Prerequisites It will help to have a basic understanding of fiber optics, e. Student Assignments Students will be instructed to read the references, watch videos and take the quizzes Test Your Knowledge to complete the course.
You should complete all lessons including taking the quiz "Test Your Comprehension" at the end of every lesson. More details on getting a Fiber U Certificate of Completion are on the last lesson. Read more about the Fiber U Certificate of Completion program.

Not a matter of "simply".
There are many factors to consider including the reasons/requirements for requiring fiber optic cables and the environment in which the fiber optic cables are being used. FlightLinx PLUS Fiber Optic Cable is a mm ruggedized single jacket cable design that meets or exceeds ARINC performance requirements without the need for a double jacket.
The high performing construction consists of a tight buffered fiber within a loose structure cable which allows for reliable pull-proof termination and helps prevent.
DCS carries out the design, installation, testing and maintenance of Fiber Optic cabling, including Fusion Splicing & Termination of Multimode or Single-mode Fiber Cables which includes both internal and external work and repair. Telecommunications Design and Installation Standards Revised November 2 Introduction UTP/Coax/Fiber Optic Installation a Inspections and Walk Through Commissioning and Documentation (27 08 00) If the need ever arises that a standard cannot be met during the design or installation.
Fiber Optic Cable: A fiber, multiple fiber or fiber bundle in a cable structure fabricated to meet optical mechanical and environmental specifications. Fiber Optic Connector: A fiber optic component normally assembled onto a cable and attached.
