The event is aimed at bringing together both industry professionals, engineers and technicians that want to know more about modern optical fiber networks and the skills required to implement them. The event will open with a presentation on the latest fiber technologies being implemented today and the impact they are having on world markets. The second presentation will look at the coming five years and what technologies are likely to be deployed in both mature and developing markets. Fiber optic technology impacts on every facet of modern communications, from a simple light distribution medium to illuminate instrumentation to Submarine cables spanning the world’s oceans and carrying terabits of data per second. Fiber optic technology is now commonplace in public access networks, in private networks and as a medium for remote monitoring and control systems, found in many industries across the globe.
To take advantage of these modern communications networks it is important that there is a greater understanding of the underlying principles of the technology and an awareness of the international standards and skills required to implement the technology. The event will conclude with a presentation on fiber optic training and the importance of both the knowledge and skills required by fiber optic professionals.
The importance of skilled and certified technicians and planners will be explored along with the real benefits they bring to any organization competing for business in modern markets. The event will give ample opportunities for networking and the chance to discuss the latest trends in technology and the training and development needed to support optical fiber networks.
