Backhaul Standards and Protocols Training

Backhaul Standards and Protocols Training

Backhaul Standards and Protocols Training:

Backhaul Standards and Protocols Training Course (Online, Onsite, and Classroom Live!)

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 their 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.

What’s Included?

  • 2 days of Backhaul Standards and Protocols Training with an expert instructor
  • Backhaul Standards and Protocols Training Electronic Courseware
  • Certificate of Completion
  • 100% Satisfaction Guarantee

Customize It:

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


After completing this Backhaul standard and Protocols course, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify and differentiate all major mobile backhaul standards and protocols
  • Choose the right standards and protocols for specific tasks and applications
  • Implement Layer 2 standards
  • Understand the impact of various configuration options on the Quality of Service and Quality Experience
