Orlando, FL – May 2011 – Multicom is pleased to host the MFH-2 and Intro to Fiber Optics courses being presented by Foxcom. Both courses include official SBCA certification and the courses are being held at the Multicom facilities near Orlando, FL.

MFH-2 has become the standard for most DirecTV installations and certification is required to perform those installations. MFH-2 is a fiber optic transport system that allows L-Band RF signals from a set of satellite dishes to be converted to fiber, transported to multiple MDUs and residences, and then converted back to RF, simplifying distribution installations and eliminating the need and expense for many dishes on every building in a complex.

With ARRA and Broadband Stimulus, Fiberoptics is being deployed at an ever-increasing rate. System design, installation, testing, and maintenance are critical for successful reliable fiberoptic networks.

These two courses provide the knowledge and expertise necessary to install, troubleshoot, and maintain these advanced systems properly. Students will learn about and be certified in: identifying the necessary components, understanding the differences with alternate distribution systems and technologies, understanding and using system design specifications, system design and considerations, proper installation, system troubleshooting, test and measurement tools, ongoing maintenance, and much more.

“Multicom is proud to be partnering with Foxcom and SBCA to provide this valuable state-of-the-art training.” Multicom strives to help educate the industry and in driving customer success and satisfaction. These courses build on Foxcom’s experience, expertise, and continuing fiberoptics innovations. said Sherman G. Miller, Multicom’s President and CEO.
