Certified Optical Network Engineer (CONE)

19 May 2014 to 23 May 2014

This advanced course is designed to enable you to assess clearly the latest developments in optical networking technology, that enable data rates of 40Gb/s, 100Gb/s and beyond in core networks, so that you can evaluate how and when they might be used within the networks that you design, plan and operate. You will learn about the role of coherent detection, polarisation multiplexing, DP-QPSK, along with Flexgrid, Next Generation CDC ROADMs, SDN, NFV etc.
