This Hands-On course provides an indepth look at IPTV Services deliver over Fiber Optics installation for installation technicians and technical support staff. IPTV generally includes the delivery of services over Passive and Active Optical Networks. Services generally include both live streamed TV and Video on demand services. VoD may be provided using RTSP applications, WebTV applications or both.
This course will provide an understanding of how these services are delivered over routed and switched IP networks through Ethernet interfaces.
Attendees will gain a Hands-On understanding of the function and operation of the equipment installed on customer site, installation testing of Passive and Active Optical Network equipment, ONT, OLT, Access devices, IPTV Set top boxes as well as their connection to modern TVs and Flat screen monitors as well as older CRT based equipment.
This course is designed for installers who need a fast introduction to the technology, equipment and network architectures as well as identifying symptoms of problems or failures.
The course will be run using an emulated customer environment in the classroom and attendees will use emulated headend streams to understand how set top boxes work. They will then install set top boxes and connect these to a selection of TV equipment and customer services. Fault conditions will then be introduced into the environment and the attendees will learn how to detect and identify these, locate the elements causing the fault, correct the fault and verify the completed working service.
As part of the labs, attendees will be provided with examples of each type of Customer Equipment that will be installed and will practice installations of each type. They will then use Protocol analyzers, Test Meters, and software based protocol analyzers together with, wireless analyzers and IPTV transport stream analyzer software to test the installed services to verify correct operation and to locate faults.
During the final day of the course the attendees will practice the skills that they have learned by undertaking an exercise testing and isolating faults in a number of configurations into which simulated customer faults have been inserted. They will isolate the faults and correct them as part of the Hands-On experience.
