WiFi Training Fundamentals Course Hands-On

WiFi Training Fundamentals – Driven by the use of unlicensed spectrum, WiFi has become a pervasive technology used in both business and home environments. With average selling prices of access points dropping along with WiFi enabled laptops and other devices, WiFi technology will continue to be a dominant technology in both information technology as well as telecommunications networks.

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of this WiFi Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the WiFi Training 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 WiFi Training Fundamentals course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
