FOA Publishes Two New Fiber Optic Textbooks

 

Guides to Fiber Optic Network Design And Outside Plant Construction

 

The FOA, the international nonprofit professional society of fiber optics, has published two new textbooks for use as reference guides to fiber optics and textbooks for training and certification. The two books cover fiber optic network design and outside plant construction.

 

The FOA Reference Guide To Fiber Optic Network Design by FOA President Jim Hayes focuses on the concepts of designing a fiber optic network and how the entire process must be planned from idea through installation, operation and documentation. This book is aimed at network designers, contractors, supervisors as well as management personnel responsible for communications and IT departments, construction and facilities management. Anyone whose responsibilities include communications systems will benefit from the information in this book. It is also the textbook used for the FOA CFOS/D Fiber Optic Design Certification.

The FOA Outside Plant Fiber Optic Construction Guide by Joe Botha of Triple Play Fibre Optic Solutions of South Africa, is a detailed guide to the construction involved in the installation of outside plant (OSP) fiber optic cable plants. Included are aerial and underground construction techniques, safety procedures, permitting processes and many other details involved in the construction of fiber optic cable plants. This book was created by Joe Botha, FOA Master Instructor, for use in a OSP construction course for OSP techs that precedes the usual FOA fiber optic courses which include splicing, termination and testing.
