EXTON, Pa. -- The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) and its global arm, the International Society of Broadband Experts (ISBE), today announced new training partnerships to expand learning and development capabilities in Carrier Ethernet and fiber-optic structutured cabling.
SCTE•ISBE is offering Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) Carrier Ethernet Certified Professional (CE-CP) 2.0 in partnership with Tech 2000. MEF is the international industry consortium dedicated to adoption of Carrier Ethernet networks and services. For its part, SCTE•ISBE has teamed up with Wirewerks, a developer and manufacturer of high-performance optical fiber and copper structured cabling systems, on a Fiber Structured Cabling course for Broadband Fiber Installers. The Fiber Structured Cabling course is available in the Caribbean and Latin American (CALA) region through SCTE•ISBE training partners TVC and Wirewerks.
"To meet increased demand for residential and business broadband services, operators are expanding the ranges of technology solutions in their product portfolios," said Steve Harris, executive director, Technical Sales, Learning & Development for SCTE•ISBE. "By partnering with Tech 2000 and Wirewerks, we are accelerating the availability of training that drives workforce expertise and contributes to operators' bottom lines."
The MEF CE-CP 2.0 is a 12-module online course that offers learners a 360-degree view of the technologies, standards, services and applications of Carrier Ethernet. Both Carrier Ethernet Certified Professional and Fiber Structured Cabling for Broadband Fiber Installers will be available online or as blended training boot camps. Both courses are designed to prepare workforce professionals for certification examinations.
The ongoing debate around GPON vs EPON can get as heated as discussions around politics and religion, but both technologies offer some advantages over the other depending on the needs your network is servicing.
In this webinar, we will focus on the facts around the GPON vs EPON debate and how that technological decision is almost always made based on factors outside the technology itself.
In this insightful Light Reading radio show, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will outline the key service provider challenges, deployment considerations, next-gen Gigabit technologies, and service models to win market share in the rapidly growing MDU market.
