The world is
changing. Technology is revolutionizing almost every aspect of our lives.
New applications are changing the way we live, work, play and learn. Behind the
technology revolution, you find networks and behind the networks, you find
people. These people want to connect and communicate anywhere at any time.
The number of networked devices is growing fast, in
both the commercial and public sectors. A
common theme in the convergence of wireline
and wireless systems is the expanded use of IP (Internet Protocol), enabling
communication between wide arrays of devices. This is driving the use and
adoption of more network infrastructure solutions. Vast quantities of IP-enabled end-user
devices are now being connected to networks, pushing up demands on the
network and infrastructure bandwidth.
standards-based fiber optic infrastructures are needed to support the growing
numbers of mobile devices, cameras, sensors and controllers.
For wireless networks,
use of high performance fiber optic connectivity in the backhaul and access
networks enables easy migration from legacy cellular networks to 4G, LTE and 5G as they
become the norm.
Optical fiber is enabling convergence. As the network requirements in both the wired
and wireless world fuel the need for
high reliability, low delay, high bandwidth and extended distances, fiber optic
solutions reach deeper into the network, regardless of type.
Video, Cloud, and the Internet of
Things – these trends are having a profound effect on the demand for higher
bandwidth and greater connectivity.
Optical fiber is the medium of choice in backbone, transmission and data center
networks, because of its unparalleled bandwidth capacity. Once installed, the
fiber remains in place while the switching equipment is upgraded from Synchronous Optical Networking/Synchronous Digital
Hierarch to 10GbE to Dense Wavelength Division
Multiplexing, as each new generation surpasses the last.
In the broadband
access network, there are several choices to be made as to how to best
migrate the networks to balance the return on investment. These choices include fiber-to-the-home, digital subscriber line, hybrid fiber coax (HFC), and wireless. Each has its unique set of
strengths, weaknesses and trade-offs. Depending on a service provider’s
business model, the proper mix of technologies and migration strategies will
help optimize the return on investment.
Infrastructure Solutions for Broadband Applications training course from the CommScope Infrastructure Academy helps
students understand the growing market for FTTx networks, Passive Optical Networks and HFC transmission and the
infrastructure components involved.
course looks at fiber types, connectors, apparatus, termination, design,
losses, installation, planning, inspection and testing, to provide a broad
education on all areas of Broadband Access and FTTx infrastructures.
If you want to become
a Broadband Cabling Infrastructure Specialist,
then I recommend this course.
