Course Objectives

For the last few years telecom network has been gradually migrating its RAN and transmission system to all-IP based network system since the increasing demand of using multiple mobile applications.

Use of IP network is extending to radio access network since the equipments are easily scalable, cost-effective and also easy to integrate with current infrastructure.Telecontran’s Advanced IP Radio Planning course would not only cover modern IP technology and its use in modern data and telecommunication networks, but also how effective Ethernet based IP network is explored based on the allocated frequency plan.

After successful completion of this workshop, participants will be able to

  • Describe IP Addressing mechanisms and the capabilities of Routers, Bridges, Repeaters and Hubs
  • Understand carrier Ethernet and Ethernet network planning
  • Configure dynamic routing protocols (RIP, OSPF and BGP)
  • Understand the security features built in to the system and build redundant and scalable network
  • Understand the advantages and disadvantages of various underlying transport networks and identify the mechanisms to ensure QoS

Target Audience

This course is designed for individuals who need to design, install and maintain IP based radio and transmission network.
