Learn the proper design techniques for underground, direct-buried and aerial cable plant applications.

Gain the knowledge you need to make wise decisions on outside plant (OSP) projects. This 5-day course will cover elements common to all OSP projects, along with design issues related to underground, direct-buried and aerial cable plant.

During this course, you will apply what you have learned through a series of design scenarios such as route design, media selection, planning new OSP cable plant and cost estimation.

This course will benefit you if you plan to make OSP engineering and design your profession.

Course topics include:

  • General information
  • Codes, standards and regulations
  • Bonding and grounding (earthing)
  • Documentation
  • Route design
  • Media selection
  • Cabling topologies
  • Spaces
  • Pathways
  • Right-of-way
  • Splicing
  • Maintenance and restoration
  • Cost estimating
  • PON design
  • Free space optics
  • Project design

Who Should Attend
OSP designers, personnel involved in the construction of OSP applications and end users charged with the ongoing maintenance of OSP facilities.

Prerequisite/Preparation
BICSI recommends completion of the  ICT Design Fundamentals Program and Introduction to Outside Plant prior to attending OSP110. In addition, BICSI strongly recommends that students read BICSIs OSPDRM before coming to class, along with any errata sheets or updates. Reference the course confirmation letter for the appropriate edition. The manual is not included in the course fee. For more information or to place an order  click here.

 

Note: Beginning in November 2011, all OSP exams will be taught and tested from the  OSPDRM, 5th edition.

What's In It For Me?
Growth on campuses, medical centers and office parks means larger and more complex systems. Make sure you have the knowledge needed to advise clients in this expanding field.
