This Hands-On course is designed to give the student a working knowledge of data circuits with a focus on the local loop aspects of these circuits.
The material covers basic telephony as it is applied in the local loop and how that technology is being used and expanded to create a ubiquitous loop environment. The course conferee will learn how the existing imbedded copper plant, re-enforced with loop electronics is able to provide any type of service from simple POTS to the new and sophisticated PANS.
-POTS - Plain Old Telephone Service
-PANS - Pretty Amazin New Stuff
This course is designed around the concept of basic telephony and its application in the local loop. It uses a building block approach, where each module builds on the previous one. Lecture material is re-enforced with stimulating case studies and Hands-On lab assignments. During the lab assignments, students build and test operational data circuits.
Whenever possible, the circuits will use the same hardware used in the students work environment and will be tested using similar test equipment currently in use in the field.
