[TBS_105] The World of Wireless *NEW*

Printer-friendly PDF version

Mobility technologies have become core to virtually every aspect of our lives. People report significant anxiety if they are disconnected from their devices for even a short time! Businesses have clearly realized benefits from a connected mobile workforce, as well as connected devices. The World of Wireless explores the world of wireless technologies, particularly cellular, to help those less familiar with the industry better speak the language. It will answer questions about different wireless technologies such as cellular voice and data sessions, 4G LTE and WiFi, wireless spectrum, data speeds, LTE-Advanced, and 5G. Leveraging discussion and exercises, participants will learn to speak to these topics with accuracy, confidence, and clarity.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, the student will be able to:
• Sketch at a high level how a wireless network carries voice calls and data sessions
• Differentiate between spectrum, coverage, and capacity and their practical impacts
• List several practical factors that impact users data speeds and describe why
• Explain the need for small cells and HetNets and the difference between them.
• Clearly explain the confusion over 4G and what lies ahead
• List three reasons LTE can achieve higher data speeds
• Describe how LTE deployments can differ and the impact to the users
• Explain at a high level how LTE supports voice calls
• Describe Quality of Service (QoS) and why it is important
• Define VoLTE in a sentence
• Explain how LTE works with 3G and WiFi technologies

Intended Audience

This course is primarily intended for those in business roles who are new to wireless.
