CFOT - Kurser - Duration 5 days

A compleet fiber optic installation is built, as either a LAN or FTTH installation. Prepairing cables, and fiber. fusion and mechnical splicing, mounting connectors, and testing with OLTS and an OTDR. The installation is built wih singlemode fiber but the theory couvers both singlemode and multimode fiber
