Introduction:

RF Systems Principles, Design, and Deployment Training – Hands-on (Online, Onsite and Classroom Live!)

RF systems come in a bewildering variety of forms and technologies, including satellite and terrestrial, mobile and fixed, microwave, trunked radio, HF/VHF, Blue-Tooth, and RF ID, to name a few.  While these systems are diverse in design and function, they all employ radio waves as a means of communication and thus utilize concepts and techniques that are fundamental to all RF systems.

In this RF Systems Principles, Design and Deployment Training course, you will learn how radio waves propagate and fade, the models that describe RF propagation and fading, how antennas work and are used, the basic traffic engineering models, the principles of RF design and optimization including traffic engineering, and the process of deploying an RF system.  At the end of the RF Systems Principles, Design and Deployment course, you will have a solid foundation in the concepts, principles, methods, and considerations common to all RF systems.  You will then be well prepared to embark on a more detailed study of your specialized interest in RF, whether  cellular/mobile, microwave, HF/VHF, satellite, or other
