Web seminar explains WBMMF, the next generation of multimode fiber

On Thursday, August 20, the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) Fiber Optics Technology Consortium (FOTC) will host a 75-minute web seminar discussing wideband multimode fiber—WBMMF—which it characterizes as the next generation of multimode. Airing live beginning at 11:00am EDT, the seminar will be delivered by Paul Kolesar, engineering fellow with CommScope, who chairs the TIA’s TR-42.11 Committee, which is developing the performance specifications for WBMMF.

“Learn all about WBMMF, the next generation of multimode fiber, and its applications,” the FOTC said when announcing the seminar. It added that the seminar will address the following.

Application drivers
Multiplexing technology
Trends in wave-division multiplexing
Trends in parallel fiber transmission
Trends in short-wavelength WDM (SWDM)
SWDM analysis
Benefits of SWDM and WBMMF
Cabling evolution roadmap
WBMMF specification requirements
Bandwidth performance data
Transmission performance at 100 meters
Transmission test configuration

Attendees of the seminar will be eligible to receive 1 continuing education credit (CEC) toward BICSI’s ICT professional credentials.
