Basics of IP and Transmission Technologies

Ethernet cables connected to router

This course provides a basic understanding of the configuration, communications, and management of TCP/IP networks and its associated protocols. Basics of IP Routing and Switching, MPLS would be touched upon. Radio Transmission Technologies and Systems Engineering will also be covered.

Important aspects of radio propagation, starting from free-space loss and absorption loss, followed by statistical analysis of various phenomena impairing radio reception process, will be included. Participants will also learn the fundamentals of fibre network design, WDMs, SDH, Fiber planning, etc.

This course is designed for engineers and managers responsible for the planning, design, and operation of networks and services.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Gain a good knowledge IP basics and TCP/IP protocols
  • Learn about various transmission technologies and media
  • Develop a fundamental understanding of Microwave transmission engineering and design such that the network does not suffer from interference
  • Develop a conceptual understanding and theoretical underpinnings of Fiber Optic transmission
  • Develop a basic understanding of Optical Network and design and optical network based transmission system.
  • Understand the basics of Carrier Ethernet technology and how to manage the transmission links after migrating from existing TDM based networks to all IP based networks
