Microwave Systems Engineering Training Course hands-on

This Microwave Systems Engineering Training course is intended to provide the participants with a sound understanding of Radio Transmission Systems Engineering and to allow them to understand major engineering considerations involved when planning and deploying digital microwave radio transmission networks.

At the end of this Microwave Systems Engineering Training course, you will understand the essentials of radio systems engineering and radio link planning and will be able to design and manage microwave networks such that the best network topologies are selected and paths are designed for lowest possible operations and maintenance costs. Description of the transmission network of RAN & UTRAN is given as example and basic transmission rate hierarchy is provided as well.

Duration: 7-10 days

Customize It:

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


After completing this Microwave Systems Engineering Training course, attendees will be able to:
