5 Day Course
Fiber optic systems are a key part of new communications services. Their success depends upon good design. This course provides a basic understanding of Fiber Optics, describing different Fiber types, the construction of point to point Fiber links, splicing, impairments and basic link design. It will examine the selection of wavelengths to use, and the use of multiple wavelengths in Course and Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexed systems. It will then provide an understanding of how these optical systems can be deployed using Remote Operation Add Drop Multiplexing Applications. Throughout the course students will undertake workshop exercises in order to be able to apply the knowledge learned. Modern carrier networks must deliver reliable communications services that are secure and match the growing speed and capacity demanded by their customers. During the 20th Century we saw the growth in universal voice and this led to the development of SONET technologies based on Time Division Multiplexing technology. This has been used for early Internet services but these would benefit from packet based asynchronous designs and much higher data rate. 21st Century networks demand has been shaped by the inexorable growth in multimedia, social media and mobile services. Carrier Transport Networks must match the current demands with the right technologies delivered flexibly enough to adapt to the ever changing pattern of user demand. They must also be delivering service to the right place and at the right price. This course is aimed at designers. It will be valuable to all those that want to be aware of the key sills of design, within the context of building new Transport Networks for tomorrow’s carrier services. These will raise the typical single wavelength 10 Gbit/s systems to 100 Gbit/s on Dense Wavelength Division systems carrying over 40 wavelengths per fiber. While this is mainly concerned with long distance, high bandwidth core services, it is important to be aware of where and how the services will eventually be delivered. In the 1990s there was a massive grown in SONET and ATM technology within Transport Networks. However by the end of the 1990s it was realized that ATM was an expensive mistake as Switched Optical Ethernet offered a more powerful and cheaper solution. Also that SONET, optimized for voice services, was probably not the optimal solution either. This course examines the demands which we are likely to place on our next generation of Transport Networks, identifies the options currently available for delivering reliability, security, aggregation flexibility, routing, switching and management. It then provides an approach to designing networks using standardized metrics to deliver services matching current and predicted future demand profiles. In-class exercises will uncover the key statistical techniques for estimating and prediction of future demand and confidence intervals. Using simple spread sheets and modelling students will learn from practical exercises how to design services to match their particular carrier network needs. These techniques will then be applied to consider the design of carrier networks using Optical Transport technologies.

With the introduction of Next Generation Networks to telecommunications carrier infrastructures, customers expect a full range of Triple Play services. These include High-Speed Internet Access, Voice Telephony and Television delivered over the same network interface. These customers may be domestic where service is delivered directly into homes, business where increasing richness of multimedia content allows businesses to communicate more effectively or in military where remote stand-off control or information gathering becomes feasible. Ideally high bandwidth fiber optic communication would be used for new richer services. However existing infrastructures often contain copper loops and for economic reasons these must be used to deploy these services. Careful design of services that work within these more restricted bandwidths is therefore important. This is one of several key challenges to delivering IPTV. It will be necessary to deliver TV quality that can match existing over-the-air and cable delivery. It will also be necessary to ensure that all services can be delivered together and will not significantly affect the performance of other services. Also that voice services can be interfaced to existing telephone networks so that they will integrate into the standard telecommunications infrastructure used around the world. This course will provide an understanding of the technologies being used to deliver a range of services including voice, point to point video, broadcast/multicast TV, HDTV and even 3D communications. It will provide a technical understanding of the different RF, wired and cable standards used for distributions and delivery. I will further provide hands-on exercises which will demonstrate how voice, multicast IPTV, Video on Demand and Web Television can be delivered over a common IP infrastructure. The course will used standard Windows PC or Laptop computers running Windows XP or Windows 7 attached to an in class LAN and emulated WAN infrastructure isolated from live infrastructures allowing the exercises of all services without firewall and security restrictions. The course exercises will use free and open source software allowing attendees to build systems which can be transferred to home, or business systems with little or no operational cost allowing further learning and experiment.

A key part of any services is the compatibility of system component subsystems with each other and with national and International public services. The course will examine the currently available IPTV standards, standards for RF and for fiber optical systems. Where feasible, practical demonstrations within the classroom will be used. These will be used to illustrate elements of the technology difficult to describe. Video presentation of field installations and field deployments will also be used.
