ITU Tutorial on Optical Fibre Cables and Systems
Mexico City, Mexico, 19– 30 September 2011
The 2nd ITU Tutorial on Optical Fibres, Cables and Systems will take place at the “Dirección de Bibliotecas”, of the
National Polytechnic Institute in Mexico City, from 19 to 30 September 2011.
The ITU-T handbook “Optical fibres, cables and systems”
offers a functional grouping of Study Group 15 Recommendations
on optical technology e.g. optical fibres and cables, physical optical interfaces,
optical fibre terrestrial and submarine cable systems.
The programme of the “ITU Tutorial on Optical Fibre Cables and Systems”
will be based on the handbook and will provide an in-depth insight into
the ITU-T Recommendations that have shaped the optical transport
networks of the world.
Participants will gain a better understanding of the ITU-T
Recommendations, how to design and implement projects choosing the most
appropriate state-of-the-art equipment. Participants will learn how to
evaluate a power budget and the fundamental parameters to be taken into
account in the preparation of technical and administrative
specifications for a supply contract.
The Tutorial is intended to assist engineers, technicians, technologists,
mid-level management and regulators in the implementation of optical-fibre-based
The tutors are leading experts in the field from industry and either participated
in the writing of the handbook or contributed to the development of the
Crash Course on “Optical Fibres”
On Monday, 26th September, a “crash” course on Optical fibres, cables and systems will also be held at the same venue. The target audience for this “crash” course will be university students and/or specialized schools from Mexico and other Latin American countries. It is intended to provide participants a general overview of Optical fibres and its characteristics.
In addition a supporting webinar will take place on Thursday, 15 September 2011 – 14:00 – 15:00 CET (GMT +2:00). Please see all the details here:
