DURATION 4 Half Days

Course Overview

The course starts with a presentation of the optical network and its components; it then describes the legacy solutions and their limitations.
The OTN related protocols and hierarchy are presented, along with the advanced draft proposals . We conclude with the description of how different types of signals are carried over OTN.

On-line Training

This Training is delivered as live on-line training, tacking advantage of the E-Learning Technology:
– Everywhere, every time, from you office/home
– ½ day session: No need to stop your project
– No travel expense & time

Who should attend?

The seminar is built for Technical, Marketing and Business Development people of Telecom Service Providers as well as Manufacturers of OTN equipment.
