This course provides a comprehensive understanding of fiber optic systems used in the telecommunications industry. The course begins with a discussion of the optical concepts related to light waves, and an explanation of how light carrying information propagates down the fiber. The course progresses with a description of the optical components used in fiber optic systems including light sources, optical fiber types, connectors, types of cables and their use, and photodetectors. Different splicing techniques are discussed as well as the use of several test instruments to measure fiber optic systems performance. Techniques to develop a fiber optic system link budget considering system losses are also introduced. Students will be engaged in an extensive hands-on lab giving an opportunity to demonstrate and test what they have learned. The course prepares the student for the ETA Fiber Optic Installer (FOI) industry certification.
