At the end of this five day course, participants will understand what is required in the planning of microwave based access network for GSM and 3G networks. They will understand migration issues arising from migrating transmission networks towards all-IP environment. This course is designed to teach participants the essence of microwave path planning. Once completed they will be able to design and maintain cost-effective solutions. The students will also learn how to design paths that will not suffer from interference, or disturb other radio systems in the vicinity.
Basic understanding of telecom, 2G and PDH is needed.
