Network Infrastructure Fundamentals

NEW PROGRAM

Program Overview

Gain detailed knowledge in the field of telecommunications network
infrastructure.

To operate successfully, all methods of communication require a source and a destination with a pathway in between. The source is most often a smart device such as a phone, tablet, scanner, camera, card reader etc. The destination (the point of processing the data) could be a telephone exchange or storage and processing equipment in a data centre. The media pathway can be fibre optic or copper cables, or quite often wireless links.

This program provides a broad understanding of the principles of communications systems, an understanding of voice and data communications technologies, and how to relate that information to the complexity of the physical network required. It explores the physical infrastructure components that combine to create the pathways, containment systems and network cabling infrastructure.

This program has been designed for individuals who are either new to the network infrastructure
sector or are seeking to develop their knowledge in relation to telecommunications networks. If you would like to discuss your experience or suitability for this program please contact us.
