Wavelength Division Multiplexing – Passive Optical Networks (WDM-PON)
Wavelength Division Multiplexing-Passive Optical Networks (WDM-PON) is the newest standard for fiber to the user (FTTx) networks. It is considered the third generation in a series of evolutions of FTTx standards. This session will review WDM-PON and address the challenges of growth, migration and coexistence with legacy G-PON, EPON and second generation 10 gigabit PON standards. You’ll learn the two methods of using WDM technology over a PON network using Time/Wavelength Division Multiplexing (TWDM) or as a wavelength specific point to point (P2P) system.
Attendees will get an understanding of WDM-PON and how it differs from legacy PON systems. Also covered are issues that affect OSP planning and test equipment and testing. The ITU-T G.989 standard will be reviewed along with the optical options for operating the network as a point to point and/or Time/Wavelength Division Multiplexing (TWDM) network.Register Today!
Larry Johnson, Director and Founder
Larry Johnson, Director and Founder of Light Brigade, has been at the forefront of the fiber optics industry since 1977. Over his three-plus-decade career in the telecommunications industries, Mr. Johnson has built a solid reputation in all aspects of fiber optic design, installation, implementation, testing, and measurement. He participated in the early development of fiber optic standards used for installation, testing, and measurement of network and physical plant. He has developed two FTTx certification programs with the FTTH Council and one with the ETA for Outside Plant fiber optic certification of FTTx installations. His leadership in the optical fiber industry has resulted in repeated invitations to speak at key conferences worldwide, and to develop fiber optic certification programs for a variety of industries.
About Light Brigade
Since 1987, Light Brigade has instructed more than 50,000 attendees in its public and custom classes. The company offers nationwide courses that cover basic fiber optic design, maintenance, and testing, as well as more advanced topics such as FTTx, fiber characterization, and video for traffic or surveillance. The company offers course development services and will custom create a course to any fiber optic subject matter or skill level. In addition, Light Brigade produces professional-quality educational DVDs and online training. All of Light Brigade’s training materials are technology-based and demonstrate theory and techniques applicable to any manufacturer’s product.
