Next Generation Wireless Networks Training Course

Next Generation Wireless Networks Training Course is an innovative training program covering trends in today’s rapidly changing Wireless Industry.

Topics including current and next generation 802.11 and 5G technologies, concepts, standardization activities, regulation, products and services.

Duration: 4 days

Audience/Target Group

Tailored Classes:
With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
