Wireless MESH Networking

Training Course Outline

Course Duration:
3 days

Training Course Description:
This course is intended for engineers, support staff and network managers requiring a good understanding of the technologies and procedures required to deploy wireless mesh networks for both Wireless LAN 802.11 and WiMAX 802.16.

The course examines MESH networking in three core areas:

- Part 1 Architectures
- Part 2 Protocols
- Part 3 Standardisation and Enabling Technologies.

An understanding of wireless technologies and IP networks would be an advantage.

Prerequisite courses:
Hands On TCP/IP and Internet Protocols
Understanding Wireless LANs
