Apply what you have learned from this distance learning course to install, diagnose and repair complex fiber-optic communications systems and take your place in the forefront of a fascinating and challenging new technology.
A fiber-optic communications system transmits digital or analog information by means of a clear glass or plastic cable. Because of their extremely wide bandwidth they are being used to replace larger and more expensive coaxial cables for the transmission of phone, television and computer information.
Fiber-optic systems are smaller and cheaper than copper wires in many applications, since they use light (instead of the electrons in an ordinary wire) to transmit information.
