This course is designed for managers, supervisors, engineers and technicians who seek a working knowledge of the various telecommunication systems used by electric power utilities. The practical application of fiber optics, microwave, power line carrier, two-way radio, wireline communication systems are explained in enough detail to understand their capabilities, concepts, advantages and disadvantages. Common telecommunication transport technologies are discussed, such as T1, xDSL, Synchronous Optical Networks (SONET), Broadband over Powerline (BPL), Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), TCP/IP, Ethernet, etc. Special emphasis will be devoted to the newer broadband wireless technologies to include Satellite communications, E Band, IEEE 802.11ac WiFi, WiMAX, 3G Cellular transport systems and private wireless communications. Additionally special safety precautions are necessary when copper, fiber and radio systems are used within substation environments, this course will also describe the High Voltage Protection systems that are used in high voltage work areas.
