Purpose

Purpose

As pressures intensify for enormous capacity in the core networks that deliver the Internet to the world, we are approaching the capacity limits of optical fibre systems. Knowing what these limits are and how we can push the boundaries becomes increasingly critical, whilst bearing in mind that we also want solutions that are flexible, reliable, low latency, cost effective and low energy.

This advanced course is designed to enable you to assess clearly the latest developments in optical networking technology, that enables data rates of 40Gb/s, 100Gb/s and beyond in core networks, so that you can evaluate how and when they might be used with the networks that you design, plan and operate.

You will learn about the role of coherent transmission and detection and polarisation multiplexing, digital signal processing, next generation soft decision FEC, CFP2s and CFP4s, BVTs, along with Flexgrid, superchannels, and CDC ROADMs. You'll gain an insight into the potential impact of SDN and NFV and how they can affect your future plans.

appreciate the performance characteristics of existing fibre types and the impact they have on system design
icon
design your system to avoid unwanted non-linear effects
icon
explain the role of complex modulation formats in increasing capacity and improving spectral efficiency
icon
decide on the right dispersion management strategy for your network
icon
appreciate the implications of coherent detection and polarisation multiplexed transmission systems
icon
optimise your network for low latency transmission
icon
decide which technologies are best suited to the demands of your network
icon
assess ROADM designs and technologies and decide when and where they should be deployed in your network

assess when the time is right to deploy new technology
Role

Role

Typical job roles of attendees include: Network architect, Core network designer, Strategic network planner, Transmission system engineer, Photonics engineer.

This is an intensive advanced course. If you do not already have some experience in deploying fibre optic systems in core networks then we recommend that you take the CONA course first.
