 ITU Tutorial on Optical Fibre Cables and Systems
 Mexico City, Mexico, 19– 30 September 2011 Contact:
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 systems.
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 referenced standards.
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:
