The birth, growth, transformation, and future of telecommunications represents a fascinating topic. Since Alexander Graham Bell’s amazing telephony breakthrough in 1877, our world has been transformed by a series of engineering triumphs which has intensified connectivity and enhanced our overall wellbeing on planet earth. In this ever-changing telecommunications industry, knowledge and competence is thus vital for professionals.

This 3-day course will provide professionals with fundamental understanding and appreciation of key modern systems in operation today. Basic concepts of telecommunications systems and how they are constantly evolving will be discussed and important wireless (DSL, FTTH) and wireless access (2G/3G/4G) mobile technologies will be reviewed.

Participants will learn the basics of voice and data communications, fixed and radio transmission systems including short range radio technologies such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Wi-Gig. The latest mainstream technology breakthroughs: the growth and influence of the Internet, cyber security, IPTV, mobile offloading, 5G technology and the Internet of Everything and other emerging technologies and systems will also be covered. This course will serve as foundation knowledge for other telecommunications courses run by Telefocal Asia.

This course is designed for Engineers, Technicians and Managers responsible for the planning, design, and operation of UMTS, LTE and GSM, UMTS networks and indoor design services.
