Earn 3 CECs at this pre-conference seminar from the TIA’s Fiber Optics Tech Consortium. This seminar will focus on common data center reference architectures including MPO/MTP and other pre-terminated links deployed in support of higher speed applications and the standards requirements that drive the fiber cable plant. Tier 1 and Tier 2 testing, application power budgets, cleaning and inspection will all be explored from the context of standards that are required by the optoelectronics (IEEE/ANSI) vs. those that specify the cable plant (IEC/TIA). Additionally, how the use of Cloud technologies is affecting workflow and results management for today’s technician will be covered. Register at BICSI.
