WiFi Technology, Applications, Design and Deployment Training


WIFI Technology Applications Design and Deployment Training Course Description

In this WIFI Technology Applications Design and Deployment Training course, you will learn about the market landscape of WiFi, the RF principles key to WiFi operation, how WiFi networks work, and the applications of WiFi. We will take an in-depth look at the various standards associated with this technology including 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n. You will also study how WiFi networks are designed, deployed, and optimized. In short, you will learn everything necessary to get the best performance and coverage for your WiFi application.

Driven by the use of unlicensed spectrum, WiFi has become as pervasive a technology at home as it is at work. WiFi-enabled laptops, PDAs, and other devices continue to proliferate as the prices of access points continue to drop. Whether you are in telecommunications or information technology, WiFI will continue to be an important technology to study for some time to come.

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.
