Course Overview
Services are provided from the core network to the customers through access network.  Operators throughout the world are upgrading their access networks to provide broadband services to residential and business customers by deploying optical fiber deeper in the access to overcome the limitations of the copper-based access network.  FTTH is a form of fiber optic access network architecture in which the optical fiber reaches the end user's living or office space.  This radical transformation in access network is made possible by Gigabit capable Passive Optical Network (GPON) technology due to its superior support for a wide range of architectures and applications.  This course will provide the participants with the knowledge and understanding of the principles & concepts of GPON Technology for implementation of FTTH Networks
