Antenna 101 A general understanding of today’s telecommunication antenna technologies for the non engineer telecom worker. In order to work safely in an RF environment you need to be able to understand the basic antennas and the patterns they produce, as well as having an idea of the frequencies used.
Antenna 201 It must be acknowledged that most people in wireless today are cautious about working with a “throwback technology” like AM broadcast. AM Broadcast and PCS/Cell workers don’t understand each other’s technology. Not only are they 1,000 MHz apart, they are a hundred years apart!
Antenna 301 Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) are used in stadiums, convention centers and parking garages, as well as indoors to help provide cell coverage over a large area.This 2 part course is designed to help you understand the different types of DAS and how they are used today. Upon completing this course, you will have a basic knowledge on how DAS works, and how it relates to the general public.
- Antenna Gain and Beam width
- How Antennas work
- Antenna Gain and Loss dBi, dDd, dBm
- Wavelengths and frequency overview
- Panels, Beams, Dish Antennas and how they have directivity and Gain
- 4 factors that will determine whether a tower needs to be detuned
- OSHA Crane Safety Standards
- Contact & Induced current
- FCC Fencing Requirements
- AM Radio, AM Towers and AM History
- Definitions of various DAS systems
- How DAS is used for public safety as well as public use
