Corning Cable Systems, part of Corning Inc.’s telecommunications division, has launched Data Centre Optical Network Design and Installation, a new three-day course that covers all aspects of successful optical fiber data centre design, including the requirements of TIA/EIA-942, Telecommunications Infrastructure Standards for Data Centres.

During the course, students will learn about the topology of the data centre, along with the passive and active components that comprise the telecommunications infrastructure.

Case studies will be presented in order to determine the data centre layout and generating a bill of materials. Students will also have the opportunity to handle optical hardware and cabling, as well as training including the testing and termination of ribbon backbone cable.

The curriculum includes a data centre market overview, standards requirements, optical sources (including LEDs, VCSELs and other lasers), laser-optimized fiber types for high-speed networks, fiber and cable selection for the data center, connector types for high-density applications, optical hardware and preterminated Plug & Play System cabling components, handling moves, adds and changes, networking protocols (i.e. Ethernet and Fibre Channel), polarity, and much more.

Each student will also receive an authorized copy of the TIA/EIA-942 data centre standard, as well as other training material from Corning Cable Systems.
