This course covers the latest technology advancements in microwave equipment and standards as well as practical real-world examples of link design, fading issues, antenna systems, frequency planning and packet based equipment, with advice based on field experience.
This course will benefit anyone wanting a thorough introduction to this field, as well as experienced microwave design and maintenance engineers who want to get updated on the latest equipment and system design trends.
Very informative and insightful, valuable anecdotes and principles. This will be very relevant to my design role as an engineer
- Mark Chatterton, Senior Engineer, Thales Research & Technology
Good practical examples, well presented
- Brian Stothard, Principal Engineer, MBDA UK Ltd
A very good insight into microwave radio principles
- John Pitcairn, Senior Engineer, Arqiva
All delegates will receive a copy of the latest edition of the book by the course tutor, Trevor Manning, Microwave Radio Transmission Design Guide (Artech House).
Combining theory with practical, real-world examples, this course provides an updated and comprehensive overview of how to plan microwave radio systems and how to maintain current and next generation equipment.
The transition from traditional TDM to packet based Ethernet networks introduces many challenges, including synchronisation issues, and it is important to know how to exploit the significant economic benefits that the technological advances offer, while ensuring you achieve true carrier grade performance, for critical applications.
Radical cost savings can be achieved, as well as significant performance improvements to achieve true fibre-like quality, if you have a holistic understanding of the many factors that contribute to cost and quality.
Digital transmission can hide a myriad of underlying problems that only come to the fore under fading conditions. Coupled with that, the radio standards and software planning tools often have aspects relevant to the old analogue world embedded in them, which can distort the results if you do not understand the underlying principles. Many widely held industry myths and misconceptions have made it even harder to get an accurate view on how to really design cost effective and robust networks.
