Wireless Technologies and Network Operations
TPR1041d | On-Demand | 5G Access | 2
Course Duration: 4 hours
Wireless networks and related technologies are becoming ubiquitous in everyday life. Everyone who is in the field of telecom needs to have foundation knowledge of the wireless network and its operations and offered services. This training covers the end-to-end wireless architecture, connectivity of radio, core and transport networks, various types of cell sites such as macro, micro, small cells, etc. It also covers the foundations of radio technology such as frequency spectrum, channel bandwidth, role of antennas, and signal propagation. It gives an overview of key operations of the wireless network such as registration, voice/data call setup, and covers the KPIs used to monitor the health of the network.
Intended Audience
Everyone who needs a technical overview of wireless networks.
