  • Hands-On Noise Mitigation
    Noisy lines are a major headache, which can be treated and eliminated. This course will train you how to measure, analyze and eliminate problem causing noise on telecommunications cable facilities. This is a Hands-On course that will show you, which test equipment to use, and how to use it. Problems with electrical power systems, radio transmission, and electric fences are just a few of the subjects that will be covered. It’s no secret the telecom industry has been in a hardship since 9-11 and when companies tighten their belts two things happen. First is reduction of force. Fortunately most of this is done by attrition and early retirement programs but however it happens it’s usually the most experienced people who leave. The second thing which seems to happen with belt tightening is elimination of training. The experienced technicians who took early retirement are replaced with younger less experienced folks who are not only expected to pick up the slack but in many cases to even improve productivity. Training is essential if these expectations are to be met. Even with all the technological advances the copper pairs are still there, the power leads are still there, loading problems are still there, bridged taps are still there and power usage has increased causing more and more trouble with transmission. And with the deployment of DSL the need for pair quality has increased greatly. Over the past 30 years a number of new subjects have been added to these courses but the basics have remained the same and they are still essential and covered in this course.
