SONET SDH Training | Technology and Design

SONET SDH Training | Technology and Design


Optical networks are a key contributor to the rapid expansion of telecommunications services ow underway. Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) and Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) have become the worldwide standard for the interface and multiplexing of user information to optical networks. SONET/SDH systems allow much greater network flexibility and management over existing optical systems. The study of SONET/SDH is therefore important for all involved with telecommunication and information technology.

In this course, you will learn both the technology and applications of SONET/SDH. We will review the SONET/SDH system components as well as the end-to-end SONET/SDH network design process. We will also discuss the essentials of SONET/SDH synchronization, control, network management, and practical deployment issues. In short, this course will give you the knowledge and skills you need to understand and deploy this important technology.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
