RF Training & Transmission Training

RF & Transmission are the concepts and technologies that have converted telecom from wired to Wireless Networks

More and more people want to remain mobile and still have access to network resources. A typical example here is the wireless connection between our mobile phones and operators’ Base Stations. This concept of wireless (RF) is very wide and is covered under our training RF Engineering. RF means Radio Frequency. From scenarios as simple as connecting LANs in two offices together using radios and antennas in a LOS, Point to Point architecture; to complex scenarios of connecting thousands of handsets to a Base Station without cables (NLOS, PmPt), RF principles are basically the same and are covered under this course. These same principles can be applied in various formats, at different frequencies or manipulated to give birth to new standards.

You will learn to configure Base Stations for Non Line of Site (NLOS) operations with Customer Premise Equipment (CPEs); you will learn to configure Radios for Point to Point communication, say between a branch office and its head office; you will learn to Design such RF networks, before implementation. At the end of the training, you would have covered the curriculum for the Certified Wireless Network Administrator, CWNA, and be qualified to write the certification exam.

In TRANSMISSION , ust as in electricity and water generation/distribution, in elecommunication, the bandwidth that you use as an individual (baseband) is only finite part of the entire bandwidth available on the operator’s network (broadband). It follows therefore that the same medium used to get voice or data to a single user may not suffice to send same signal from, say 1000 users in Lagos to another set of 1000 different users in Abuja. You will require media that support, at least in theory, 1000 times the bandwidth requirement of 1user. This kind of ‘big bandwidth’ connection, whether wired or wireless, is called Transmission link. Several media can be deployed for transmission. Most recent and globally accepted of these media is Fibre Optics, which is fast replacing VSAT/Satellite technologies. Others are Copper, Coaxial cable, and Microwave. The best choice-medium for your purpose would be determined by several factors like Cost, Bandwidth requirement, Frequency supported, Distance, etc.
