Microwave transmission networks and link planning


  • This training course provides the student with a strong background in the area of planning telecommunication transmission networks using  Digital Microwave radio.
  • The course covers in detail all the important aspects of radio propagation, starting from free-space loss and absorption loss, followed by statistical analysis of various phenomena impairing radio reception process K-factor variation and ducting.
  • The introductory part of the course also reviews basic parameters of the microwave radio systems, antenna, transmission lines and all other auxiliary equipment used during implementation of microwave radio-relay sites.

Duration:    Two options

  • Class room  : 5 days  (full day) – Instructor led training with lab session.  (OR)
  • Online-Live : 10 days , 3 hours/ day – Live instructor led training with lab session

What you will gain?

After completing this course, the participant will understand about:

  • Essentials of Transmission engineering and will be able to design and manage microwave networks.
  • Able to design RF link for P2P or P2M
  • The person will have the knowledge to optimize and improve the network performance and quality.

Pre requisites : Sound knowledge on digital & RF communication is required.

Who should attend?

The course is designed for telecommunications professionals, including transmission engineers, network planners and technical project managers who are involved in the area of planning, deployment, commissioning or operation of modern Digital Microwave Radio.

Candidates working in other relevant field like transmission NOC , Switching, WiMax ,Data networks  are also welcome to join the course.

Practicals :
