Certified Optical Network Engineer (CONE)

Certified Optical Network Engineer

Advanced optical networking course from Fiber Guide

The advanced optical networking course offers designers, planners and others involved with optical networking an opportunity to upgrade their knowledge of next generation optical networking. This intense, 5-day, vendor neutral program, Certified Optical Network Engineer (CONE), builds on the foundation provided by the introductory course, Certified Optical Network Associate (CONA). 

CONE tackles the requirements for designing high performance networks to meet the key challenges of the industry, including:
Increasing capacity
Extending reach
Increasing flexibility
Controlling latency
Providing Quality of Service (QoS)
Going open and interoperable

Delegates learn how the powerful combination of coherent transmission and digital signal processing has transformed optical communications at data rates of 100Gb/s, 400Gb/s, 800Gb/s and beyond. You will learn about the changes necessary to DWDM systems to operate efficiently at data rates of 100Gb/s and above. The latest optical communication technologies such as coherent detection, advanced modulation formats, non-linear fiber impairments, polarization multiplexing, Flexigrid and next generation CDC ROADMs are some of the concepts covered in the course.

At the end of the training, delegates are expected to be able to:
Mitigate against nonlinear fiber impairments
Choose appropriate pluggables for their project
Plan for deployment of OIF 400ZR for DCIs
Assess options for 10Tb/s for all distances – from 100m to transoceanic distances
Understand flexgrid and plan for its implementation
Decide on appropriate FEC and DSP technologies
Asses the role of SDN in their network
Choose appropriate fiber for their application

Delegates must have successfully completed the introductory CONA course to enroll in the advanced CONE course.
