Optical Networking Training Boot Camp by TONEX  – Crash Course

TONEX Optical Networking Training Boot Camp is the answer to your Optical Networks technology needs from current to next generation technologies for public and private networks. Our mission is to clarify highly complex technical standards and topics.

Underlying principles are reviewed along with common optical solutions and practices. Our newly upgraded Optical Networking Series includes Examples, Implementation and Trade-offs. It explains and provides practical tips on how to design and implement Networks for Optimum Performance. Hours of Real-life case studies are used to demonstrate key concepts. The optical networking seminar provide the Rock-Solid foundation of optical systems.

The OTN (Optical Transport Network) layer is also covered in the Optical Bootcamp. Participants will learn about OTN and how it is designed to map different protocols and rates providing high bandwidth capabilities, low heat dissipation and reduced rack space requirements, at a comparatively low cost.

OTN enables transport over long haul and longer distances with less regeneration sites by utilizing forward error correction (FEC) embedded within the OTN layer.  OTN layer makes it the most efficient and cost-effective multi service provisioning platform (MSPP) over WDM infrastructure.
