Light Brigade® Introduces High-speed Fiber Optic Systems Training DVD
Tukwila, WA and Spartanburg, SC – The Light Brigade, AFL’s education and training division, introduces its newest menu-based staff training DVD titled, “High-speed Fiber Optic Systems.” The DVD examines the rapid improvement of spectral efficiency within the fiber optic system and addresses how advanced modulation formats work to help meet the demand for higher speed data transmission.
The new DVD features nine chapters providing insight into the newest modulation formats and techniques, helping users achieve greater reliability, flexibility, scalability and ultimately greater efficiency within their fiber optic infrastructures. The DVD addresses such formats as coherent transmission, forward error correction, digital signal processing, software-defined networking, and optical amplification and switching.
