The Light Brigade introduces fiber-optic system design training DVD

The Light Brigade has announced its newest menu-based DVD, “Fiber Optic System Design,” which demonstrates how to design a fiber-optic transmission system to suit current and future requirements. The DVD content focuses on issues critical when designing local, metropolitan, and wide-area networks, including physical layout, component integration, and calculating loss budgets.

The Light Brigade has announced its newest menu-based DVD, “Fiber Optic System Design,” which demonstrates how to design a fiber-optic transmission system to suit current and future requirements. The DVD content focuses on issues critical when designing local, metropolitan, and wide-area networks, including physical layout, component integration, and calculating loss budgets.

The DVD’s individual chapters discuss myriad design processes, from simple point-to-point networks to more advanced DWDM, ROADM, and FTTH/FTTB systems. Special focus is given to the factors that can degrade signal quality, including attenuation, dispersion (for single-mode fibers), and bandwidth (for multimode fibers). New technologies for 100 Gbps systems are discussed, and challenges and examples are provided for various applications.

The chapters include:

  • The design process
  • Transmission systems
  • Multimode bandwidth
  • Multimode loss budgets
  • Singlemode dispersion
  • Singlemode loss budgets
  • WDM systems
  • ROADMs
  • FTTH
  • System integration

Bonus materials provided on the DVD include a student quiz, with matching instructor version, written in Microsoft Word format to allow for customization.
