Wireless technologies have become a fundamental part of daily life in the 21st century. They give people the ability to make efficient use of their time, connect any time and anywhere, and make lives better in innumerable ways. In order to function, wireless devices need to connect to cellular sites that provide good coverage both outdoors and indoors.
This two-course program provides a historical overview of 4G/5G technology, showcases the scientific evidence surrounding wireless facilities’ impact on property value and human health, and more.
Upon successful completion of Bridging the 4G/5G Gap: Telecommunications Roadmap for Implementation course program, your engineers will receive valuable CEUs/PDHs from IEEE that can be used to maintain engineering licenses.
