CAI - Fibre Optics in Signal Distribution Stage 1 Course

This programme is suitable for participants involved in the TV/RF distribution industry with a desire to learn the developments
of Fibre Optic Technology focusing on Fibre Integrated Systems (FIRS).
A reasonable understanding of conventional IRS would be beneficialbut not absolutely necessary.
This programme will enable participants to understand the working and planning of a typicalsized Fibre IRS
Over this 1-day programmeparticipants will becomepractically familiar with the components of a working Fibre IRS.
