Course Overview

To achieve adequate In-Building cellular service, RF sources must be capable of handling and processing call traffic. This module examines the need for indoor service, the challenges of indoor deployments, the RF sources, and the distribution mechanisms available to venues today that facilitate cellular wireless deployment initiatives.Students will understand that among four service providers and three generations of technology, there are many radio systems that need to be studied for compatibility and incompatibility with one another.

Intended Audiences

  • IT Directors, CRE’s, building owners and facility managers, project managers, and RF engineers
  • Personnel without any cellular/RF background
  • Decision-makers and operations personnel
  • Personnel who desire to refresh and advance their understanding of RF fundamentals and examine current trends, standards, and practices
