Optical Networking Tutorial

Tim Rayner, AARNet


This full day workshop will look at the various optical fibre technologies that AARNet uses to deliver services to the R&E community. We will

cover singlemode fibre, connectors, optical modules and CWDM and DWDM concepts. We will look at examples of these technologies, and

gain some practical experience with fibre cleaners, power meters, using an OTDR, and looking at the optical modules and technologies used to

deliver services at 1Gbps, 10Gbps, 40Gbps and 100Gbps.


The workshop should suit R&E networking staff who are seeking to improve their understanding of these technologies that are key to AARNet's

service delivery, and to enhance their ability to troubleshoot optical fibre networks.
