 ITU Webinar on “Optical fibres, cables and systems” Handbook
 15 September 2011, 14:00 – 15:00 Contact:

This webinar provides a basic overview of the ITU-T handbook “Optical fibres, cables and systems” which offers a functional grouping of ITU standards (ITU-T Recommendations) on optical technology e.g. optical fibres and cables, physical optical interfaces, terrestrial and submarine fibre-optic cable systems.

The tutors are leading experts in the field and either participated in the writing of the handbook or contributed to the development of the referenced standards. The webinar is aimed at engineers, technicians, technologists, mid-level management and regulators active in the implementation of optical-fibre-based systems.

The webinar was originally an online complement to the 2nd ITU Tutorial on Optical Fibres Cables and Systems which took place at the National Polytechnic Institute in Mexico City, Mexico, 19-30 September 2011.

Questions on this topic are welcome, and can be submitted to the Optical Transport Network Forum on the Standards Q&A Forum at
