What pre-requisite experience do I need?

This course can be taken with no previous experience or course pre-requisites.


The objective of this course is to introduce HELIAX FiberFeed Solutions. As technology improves and greater bandwidth is demanded in the wireless communications field, the course looks at the cabling options available to provide power and fiber connectivity and the flexibility this solution provides you.

We look at the complete channel from the bottom of the tower to the top, including the connection enclosures, the different patching tails available and connections to the RRUs (Remote Radio Units). As the name FiberFeed suggests, there are fiber connections involved, so apart from handling the fiber correctly we detail the inspection process for the fiber end face and the connections, concentrating on cleanliness as this is critical to getting maximum performance.

Lastly, we step through the inspection process and how to troubleshoot installations. Although this course doesn't provide you with the equipment to physically sample the work, it will provide you with enough information to understand where HELIAX FiberFeed can be used, the advantages it provides and how when inspecting and troubleshooting, what to look for and what you are looking at.
