Course Overview:

Metropolitan WiFi Network Design and Deployment Training Course – Hands-on

In this Metropolitan WiFi Network Design and Deployment Training course, you will learn the techniques required to design wireless wide-area networks for optimal coverage, capacity, and quality of service for the subscribers’ applications. We will begin by discussing how the determination of coverage and capacity requirements begins with understanding when, where, how, and why your subscribers will use the network. This will be followed by a comprehensive discussion of the network design methodologies. We will conclude with a discussion of the tools and techniques for managing the network and maintaining a high-quality subscriber experience.

WiFi networks, from small hotspots to large metropolitan systems, are becoming increasingly common in technically advanced and developing countries alike. The technology is extremely adaptable in terms of capacity and application and is often lowest cost solution to providing broadband services. For anyone involved with telecommunication and information technology, understanding this technology is a fundamental requirement.


Upon completing this Metropolitan WiFi Network Design and Deployment Training course, learners will be able to meet these objectives:

● Understand the key application factors that impact capacity requirements
● Use engineering techniques to design for optimum RF coverage
● Use engineering techniques for system capacity planning
● Perform WiFi channel planning and interference mitigation
● Understand mesh technology and mesh network performance
● Design point-to-point links
● Conduct site surveys for best engineering practices
