Training Compendium CE

Training goals

This two-day long training event introduces design process of digital microwave point-to-point systems. Such systems are widely used by fixed and mobile telephony operators as well as for military purposes. During this course attendees obtain necessary theory and study detailed aspects of planning process. The most important parts of the course cover the following subjects: radiowave propagation theory, types of fading, parameters and configuration of radio equipment (antennas, waveguides, modems), frequency planning, interference conditions and link budget. Finally, the course also presents a detailed case-study example which summarizes the knowledge provided.

Target Audience - Who Should Attend and Benefit

This course is addressed to individuals responsible for planning, engineering, operating and maintaining digital microwave point-to-point radio systems. Practical and theoretical knowledge would be valuable for both technical professionals and engineers.
