For around a hundred years, single antennas have been used, dipoles, etc. for wireless communications in the last ten years, however, this has all changed and multiple antenna system. Different types of diversity, beamforming, array antennas and MIMO have all emerged onto the wireless scene. They offer better cell capacity, more user throughput, larger cells: too many good things to be true, it seems. However, actual deployments have shown the immense value of current MIMO technology and the potential for the next few years. Technologies such as IEEE 802.11n, Mobile WiMAX, HSPA and LTE are all dependent on their antenna systems for their performance. The newest and therefore most advanced usage is for LTE so some time will be spent on antennas for that technology and its predecessor, HSPA. This unique course starts with a refresher on antenna basics before looking at diversity in all its forms and then diversity, MIMO, beamforming and array antennas.

This Hands-On course is suited for the technician who will be responsible and working with LEAD/Poly cables in an Outside Plant environment. This course is designed for the proper handling and Hands-On techniques when working with LEAD/Poly cables. The old-school methods available to telephone maintenance staff to repair LEAD/Poly cable issues were to use the "Torch Method" or "Hot-Wipe Method" using lead sleeves/closures to fix the cable issues instead of having the expense of replace the cable section with a new one. These methods are quickly becoming a lost art in the telecommunications industry, in effort to joint-weld and solder using lead on the cable or having to fire up the torch, these methods are not only difficult but many phone companies have very few technicians, if any, that currently have the training or expertise to perform Lead Cable repairs in the field. This is a lab intensive course and will help develop the Hands-On practical skill sets for identifying, opening, splicing, closing and repairing the specified lead copper cables in an outside plant environment.

Fiber optic systems are a key part of new communications services. Their success depends upon good design. This course provides a basic understanding of Fiber Optics, describing different Fiber types, the construction of point to point Fiber links, splicing, impairments and basic link design. It will examine the selection of wavelengths to use, and the use of multiple wavelengths in Course and Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexed systems. It will then provide an understanding of how these optical systems can be deployed using Remote Operation Add Drop Multiplexing Applications. Throughout the course students will undertake workshop exercises in order to be able to apply the knowledge learned. Modern carrier networks must deliver reliable communications services that are secure and match the growing speed and capacity demanded by their customers. During the 20th Century we saw the growth in universal voice and this led to the development of SONET technologies based on Time Division Multiplexing technology. This has been used for early Internet services but these would benefit from packet based asynchronous designs and much higher data rate. 21st Century networks demand has been shaped by the inexorable growth in multimedia, social media and mobile services. Carrier Transport Networks must match the current demands with the right technologies delivered flexibly enough to adapt to the ever changing pattern of user demand. They must also be delivering service to the right place and at the right price. This course is aimed at designers. It will be valuable to all those that want to be aware of the key sills of design, within the context of building new Transport Networks for tomorrow’s carrier services. These will raise the typical single wavelength 10 Gbit/s systems to 100 Gbit/s on Dense Wavelength Division systems carrying over 40 wavelengths per fiber. While this is mainly concerned with long distance, high bandwidth core services, it is important to be aware of where and how the services will eventually be delivered. In the 1990s there was a massive grown in SONET and ATM technology within Transport Networks. However by the end of the 1990s it was realized that ATM was an expensive mistake as Switched Optical Ethernet offered a more powerful and cheaper solution. Also that SONET, optimized for voice services, was probably not the optimal solution either. This course examines the demands which we are likely to place on our next generation of Transport Networks, identifies the options currently available for delivering reliability, security, aggregation flexibility, routing, switching and management. It then provides an approach to designing networks using standardized metrics to deliver services matching current and predicted future demand profiles. In-class exercises will uncover the key statistical techniques for estimating and prediction of future demand and confidence intervals. Using simple spread sheets and modelling students will learn from practical exercises how to design services to match their particular carrier network needs. These techniques will then be applied to consider the design of carrier networks using Optical Transport technologies.

Governments everywhere are moving towards Analogue Switch Off in TV broadcasting. Digital Video Broadcasting standards for use terrestrially as well as over satellite and cable have been available for many years, but viewers and users often see limited benefits in migration. With recent changes in television formats, demands for high definition TV services have increased. These already exist for delivery over DVB-S and over cable but are not easy to achieve over DVB-T. Delivering new HDTV services and migrating from analogue to digital together can offer attractive possibilities to governments and the industry alike. DVB-T2 provides new opportunities to increase performance of DVB-T services and with changes in channel coding and encoding compression, deliver HDTV services without increases in radio bandwidth. Already exist in the UK and extensive interest is seen around the world in HDTV. To succeed new services will need to migrate encoding of video streams, change multiplexing techniques and implement new mechanisms in the radio layer to deliver better forward error recovery and more digital bandwidth. This course covers how DVB-T is deployed; HDTV services are encoded and delivered currently. It will then provide a detailed understanding of the frame structure, channel coding and modulation for a second generation digital terrestrial television broadcasting system that will be used by DVB-T2.

With the introduction of Next Generation Networks to telecommunications carrier infrastructures, customers expect a full range of Triple Play services. These include High-Speed Internet Access, Voice Telephony and Television delivered over the same network interface. These customers may be domestic where service is delivered directly into homes, business where increasing richness of multimedia content allows businesses to communicate more effectively or in military where remote stand-off control or information gathering becomes feasible. Ideally high bandwidth fiber optic communication would be used for new richer services. However existing infrastructures often contain copper loops and for economic reasons these must be used to deploy these services. Careful design of services that work within these more restricted bandwidths is therefore important. This is one of several key challenges to delivering IPTV. It will be necessary to deliver TV quality that can match existing over-the-air and cable delivery. It will also be necessary to ensure that all services can be delivered together and will not significantly affect the performance of other services. Also that voice services can be interfaced to existing telephone networks so that they will integrate into the standard telecommunications infrastructure used around the world. This course will provide an understanding of the technologies being used to deliver a range of services including voice, point to point video, broadcast/multicast TV, HDTV and even 3D communications. It will provide a technical understanding of the different RF, wired and cable standards used for distributions and delivery. I will further provide hands-on exercises which will demonstrate how voice, multicast IPTV, Video on Demand and Web Television can be delivered over a common IP infrastructure. The course will used standard Windows PC or Laptop computers running Windows XP or Windows 7 attached to an in class LAN and emulated WAN infrastructure isolated from live infrastructures allowing the exercises of all services without firewall and security restrictions. The course exercises will use free and open source software allowing attendees to build systems which can be transferred to home, or business systems with little or no operational cost allowing further learning and experiment.

This course is designed for the Communications and Power Energy Industry, experienced climbers only. Attendees MUST have prior pole climbing training and experience. This course is not for first time climbers. First time climbers need to attend our Hands-On Pole Climbing 3-day course before attending this course or equivalent. Today's installer and repairers (lineworkers) is listed as the eight most hazardous occupation in the US as reported by the Bureau of labor statistics (BLS). With approximately 600+ serious injuries and over 100+ deaths estimated annually by OSHA. This is a series issue that Lineworkers/Installers face everyday and companies are responsible for. With more work being done from Ariel lifts trucks, lineworkers/Climbers are climbing less frequently then in the past. As a result, Lineworkers/Climbers are not climbing enough to maintain adequate skills levels and are now more susceptible to falls that can be fatal. Communication and Utility companies around across the US and Internationally have recognized and are now addressing this issue by providing fall restraint systems and aggressive training to equip their lineworkers/Climbers and prevent any injuries, fatalities and claims in the future. This course is designed to train the lineworkers/climbers fall protection on wood poles from the ground, to the elevated work position, and back to the ground. The BuckSqueeze/Supersqueeze requires the climber to hitchhike up and down the pole utilizing the cross over strap and the paddle tensioner. If the climber starts to fall, the strap squeezes the pole, securing the climber and preventing a fall. While climbing over obstructions, the climber would secure a lanyard prior to removing the BuckSqueeze/Supersqueeze. The BuckSqueeze/Supersqueeze is easy to adjust to accommodate the size of the pole. The fact that a lineworkers/Climbers can fall from a structure and risk serious injury and possibly death, at a time when products, technology and resources are readily available to prevent it, is unacceptable... We are here to properly train staff to use this fall restraint system and give them the confidence they need to climber safely.

Most published surveys show that 65-85% of the power quality problems are the result of something happening within the facility, on the customer side of the point of common coupling. It may be the wiring or the loads themselves that make the supplied voltage incompatible with equipment within the facility. The result is that the process is interrupted, productivity is halted, and dollars are lost. This Hands-On course will provide the skills and teach the ability to properly identify and treat power quality and harmonics problems is important for system reliability and efficiency.

Mobile cellular telephone systems are today universally used throughout the developed world. The key issue in many locations however is the lack of good coverage. In some cases this is caused by topographical features of the geography of the area or the lack of cellular telephone masts near by. However in other cases coverage may be good for some users of one operator but very bad for another. It may also happen that black spots exist even when no topographical feature would seem to be present to cause it or that strong signals are indicated but calls drop for no apparent reason. These situations are a strong indication of radio interference sources cause problems. To resolve such problems is a challenge for Radio Frequency Engineers and Field Support Technicians. First it is necessary to fully understand the radio technology in use and how signals are encoded, decoded and engineered in fully working systems. Coverage will be affected by antennas and the coverage expected for different types of antenna systems must be understood. With this knowledge and good spectrum analyzers it is possible to examine radio signals in locations where interference is expected and identify the type of interference. Different types of interference exhibit different signal patters and from this experienced technicians can start to locate suspected interference sources. This course provides an understanding of radio systems in the 850, 900, 1800 (PCS) and 2100 MHz bands used for cellular and mobile telephony and in the 2400 MHz used for WiFi systems. Students will use simple laptop computers, regular cell phones and Spectrum Analyzers to understand RF interference, expected antenna propagation and the patterns generated by interference sources on tester displays. They will use directional antennas to track interference and learn how to locate individual interference sources.

Carriers have offered connectivity services based on traditional TDM, Frame Relay and ATM for many years. However customers now use Ethernet as the interface of choice for virtually all services and applications. The cost of operating separate networks to provide each service, as well as the need to sell higher bandwidth services than can be offered with traditional networks, is forcing carriers to move to newer, more cost effective technologies, namely Ethernet, Backbone Bridging, IP and MPLS. Ethernet and IP have allowed networks to deliver high bandwidth and new services with greater flexibility, while MPLS has allowed these new services to become more "carrier-class", offering the connection-oriented behaviour, quality of service, and reliability normally associated with traditional technologies. However the signaling and routing costs of MPLS and layer 3 solutions have still been significant, which has lead to the development of other layer 2 Provider Backbone Transports (PBT) and Provider Backbone Bridging (PBB) solutions for small to medium scale carrier metro services. The Metro Ethernet Forum has evolved a set of standard service definitions for the kinds of Ethernet services customers now require. These can deliver services between sites that look to customers like end to end Ethernet. For carriers they can emulate other traditional TDM services over the same infrastructure and deliver all services over a common unified network by adding Pseudo Wire Emulation edge to edge (PWE3). This course provides carrier network designers with the understanding and tools needed to design and build carrier class solutions that deliver Metro Ethernet Services. It will identify how to put together loading and sizing data and then select the correct technologies to match the requirements for delivering customer services.

There are a number of mobile applications that requires that a central server be aware of the location of the mobiles which are using that application. Often GPS is available but this is not always either available or suitable. This is especially true of the location of a mobile is to be determined without the mobile being involved by using either a GPS chip or any detection of the location process. While mobile operators have network-based methods for finding where their mobiles are and are also prepared to sell that information, that may also not always be appropriate.. A location detection system can be network-based, mobile-based or mobile-assisted. The service should be able to operate over as many mobile technologies as possible internationally, not just GSM and UMTS. This may require different location detection techniques for different networks. Location sensing and location based applications are rapidly finding their place in the mobile marketplace. GPS is currently the preferred solution. Therefore the GPS solution is therefore described is some depth. However, other solutions are available and will be described and considered in their own right.

With 3G mobile technologies already rolled out by over 200 operators in over 80 countries, standards bodies, manufacturers and operators are looking towards the next generation of mobile technology. The UMTS standards body, 3GPP has created a plan to achieve ambitious goals for where mobile communications should go. This is Long Term Evolution – LTE. For technicians and technical professionals to stay in touch with this evolution, a good grounding in the technology and terminology of 2G, 3G and 4G systems is needed. The key conceptual design philosophies of each generation need to be understood in order to build effective networks as they evolve. Transition will not occur overnight. Indeed it may be many years before every network has transitioned every part to 4G. The mechanisms of linking the different technologies must be appreciated. The increased performance in the future will depend upon changes in the radio path. The new or changed areas include the use of MIMO antenna systems, OFDM-based multiple access as well as the architectural changes. This course describes the technical features of 2G GSM, 3G UMTS and the evolution of technologies that will change to support 4G LTE. This includes, notably, the core network which has its own evolution plan, SAE, System Architecture Evolution. Examples of switched configuration will be studied to illustrate practical aspects.
