Pre-Event Seminar on Fibre Optics hosted by Corning

As the fundamental passive carrier of all your network data, the optical fibre is one of the most important elements of a telecommunications network. The optical fibre you install today is expected to perform for 25 years or more. Therefore deciding which fibre to use is a highly important decision that determines the future performance of your network.

At the end of this seminar, the attendee is expected to:

  • Understand essential aspects of optical fibre and its application to telecommunication systems and network design
  • Be able to specify the most appropriate optical fibre for different telecommunications applications to ensure longevity of network performance
  • Be aware of the latest innovations in optical fibre technology and associated next generation optical fibers
