Build and modify an FTTH network

Educational objectives :

  • Mastering Engineering Rules ZMD, DBZ-BD & RIP
  • Being able to design a fiber optic network (explore possibilities of optical cable routing and equipment / infrastructure set up) on a GIS.
  • Read and interpret any kind of plan.
  • Perform or update the synoptic.
  • Carry out the project design and detailed plans to meet the client's specifications.
  • Modify the technical plans based on information provided by the field and finalize the study.

  • Application and adaptation of the ZMD Engineering Rules for FTTH RIPs.
  • Knowledge review of the QGIS Initiation cycle
  • Selection of several plugins (extensions) that can be used in QGIS to add specific functionalities to the software in order to better size a fiber optic network.
  • Use the mapping tools linked to QGIS (Google Maps, Street View, GéoPortail, ...
  • Read and interpret any kind of plan.
  • Creating plans from picketing
  • Dimensioning transport (NRO PMZ-part): Calculation of transport capacity / positioning and dimensioning of PEP / Exercises
  • Study of the PMZ zone (PMZ-PA part): - Preliminary: Connection rules for buildings and pavilions - Creation of coherent distribution zones - Validation of the position of the PMZ - Location of the PAs: the criteria - Sizing of the PMZ cables - PA - Special cases of large capacity PMZs or less than 300 EL - Pre-wiring of PMZs and PAs, switching on of couplers - Exercises

Carrying out complete studies of an FTTH zone on QGIS: - NRO zone - Cable sizing (NRO - PMZ - PA - PB) - Position of PEP - Type of cabinet / position of PMZ / PMZ zones - PA zones / the position of the PAs -…
