About Fiber Technology
Fiber optics is the technology used to transmit information as pulses of light through strands of fiber made of glass or plastic over long distances.
Optical fibers are about the diameter of a strand of human hair and when bundled into a fiber-optic cable, they’re capable of transmitting more data over longer distances and faster than other mediums. It is this technology that provides homes and businesses with fiber-optic internet, phone and TV services.
There are several different types of fiber-optic networks but they all begin with optic cables running from the network hub to the curb near your home or straight to your home to provide a fiber-optic internet connection. The fastest type of fiber network is called Fiber to the Home (FTTH) or Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) because it’s a 100% fiber-optic connection with optical fiber cables installed to terminals directly connected to houses, apartment buildings and businesses.
On the other hand, Fiber to the Curb (FTTC) is a partial fiber connection because the optical cables run to the curb near homes and businesses and copper cables carry the signals from the curb the rest of the way. Similarly, Fiber to the Building (FTTB) is when fiber cable goes to a point on a shared property and the other cabling provides the connection to offices or other spaces.
This class was much better than expected. The instructor was top notch! Great having it taught by someone with an exceptional amount of experience.
I am very well pleased with how the class went over topics. I took a fiber training several years ago that was 2 weeks long. I didn’t grasp anything from that class. It wasn’t trained well like this one.
Teachers was great, engaged the class immediately with hands-on exercises which almost made me feel like I’d been splicing for years. The learning environment was comfortable and progressive. I’d come back for another class if I could.
