Fibre-optic cables are made up of thin strands of glass or plastic which help to transmit data at the speed of light between two places exclusively on light-based technology. With the help of fibre optic cables, data can be transmitted digitally. Nowadays, telephone companies have started using fibre optic cables for telephone lines. Almost all the communications will utilize fibre optics in the near future.
This course is designed to guide students about the upcoming features of fibre optics communication. This course, gives a basic concept involved in fibre optic transmission and how they work in real.
After completion of this course, students will know in detail about connecting fibre, optical testing, design parameters involved in fibre optic communication and also about OTDR.
