Microwave Transmission Planning (Corporate Only)


This training provides in-depth knowledge of technological aspects of transport networks deployed in mobile networks. It gives detailed understanding of planning of radio elements of a microwave link against a performance requirement and to be able to predict the performance of the link that had been planned. Hands-on exposure to participants enables them to independently plan and validate the microwave transmission network.
