Course Overview:

Backhaul Standards and Protocols Training – Course Description

The underlying protocols, message formats and exchanges are what make the architectures work. This Backhaul Standards and Protocols Training course will review the predominant protocols, their standards and operation. This Backhaul Standards and Protocols Training course will, optionally, include protocol analysis labs using the WireShark protocol analyzer depending on the length of the class and the customization and emphasis options chosen.

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of this course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
