GPON Technology

Course Eligibilty

Basic knowledge on optical fiber communication and multiplexing is recommended

Technical persons involved in design, configuration, installation, testing, troubleshooting of fiber optic system.

Suitable for OFC engineers, managers, planners and telecom professionals.

Course Syllabus

GPON Technical course is designed to provide students an overview of PON fundamentals.

PON standards are emphasized including Optical Line Termination (OLT), Optical Network Termination (ONT), Optical Distribution Networks (ODN).

What you will gain?

  • Identify and name the principle parts of a a fiber optic link
  • Test and troubleshoot a PON system
  • Use a Fiber Visual Fault Finder
  • Use a Light Source and Power Meter to measure link loss
  • Use an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR)
  • Use an Optical Return Loss (ORL) Meter
  • Various configuration of PON including FTTH , FTTN and FTTC.
