Light and Smoke

Smoke signals are a primitive way of visual i.e. optical communications. Modern telecommunications for long distance and high capacity are based on somewhat more sophisticated technology. In this course, you get to work with optical fibers, lasers, network diagnostics, and learn about components of a fiber-optic network. The course will give you some hand-on experience with tools used to splice fibers (connect two fibers) or measure attenuation in the fiber. You will also learn about amazing rates of data transfer that make optical communication an indispensible technology that makes possible the lifestyle of today, liimting factors of data transfer and we will have a glance of future technologies, yet to be deployed.

Smoking is, of course, not allowed in this school...
