T1-T3 and Fiber Networks
Operations, Maintenance & Troubleshooting
Course Description
A vast majority of Telecommunications companies use T1 (DS1) and Fiber Optic network systems as the primary method of transporting voice and data on their transmission networks therefore, having well trained technicians with the ability to install, maintain and troubleshoot these systems is vital to providing high-quality reliable service to customers in a highly competitive environment.

This 2-day Hands-On course is an intense training experience that combines T1, T3 and fiber optics theory and operations with Hands-On troubleshooting. BTS provides a live working classroom lab with typical equipment currently deployed in the telecommunications industry. Students learn how these systems work, then are required to use the knowledge to test, troubleshoot and repair the circuits.
Students Will Learn
