Understanding Wireless I DVD Course
Covers mobile communications: cellular, PCS and 3G, plus the wireless Web.
Self-paced DVD-video course
This course comes with 134 minutes of instruction, a comprehensive workbook/textbook with graphics and detailed notes, and a personalized certificate of completion from Teracom suitable for framing when you pass the final exercise.
Understanding Wireless I begins with basic radio concepts, understanding "analog radio" and "digital radio", then covers fundamentals of mobile communication networks: base stations, cells, handoffs and mobility.
With this in place, we go through the first and second generation technologies: AMPS, TDMA, GSM and CDMA, and understand how each works, their strengths and weaknesses and how they relate to each other.
In Part 3, we concentrate on data over cellular and 3G, and cover the differences between GPRS, Wideband CDMA or UMTS, cdma2000, 1X, 3X, 1XEV-DO and HSPA. We review expected throughput in bits/second and which carriers are supporting which technologies. We conclude with applications such as i-mode, SMS, wireless email, web, WAP and XML.
This video provides you with a real understanding of how a cellular network operates, the main technologies, the opposing camps championing different systems, and wireless applications.
