Course content


Introduction to Mobile Networks

Structure of Mobile networks, including a look at the individual components and common issues with connectivity and reliability. Easy fixes to boost reliability beyond 99%"


Cellular Routers Masterclass

Deep dive into leading industrial routers, covering important tips and considerations for transportation applications. Explore common configurations/protocols/interfaces, and ensure rock-solid security with VPNs, firewalls, and remote access methods. 


Antennas: Making the right choices…Do’s and Don'ts for your applications

We simplify complex antenna and RF datasheets and turn the dark art of wireless installations, into practical advice and guidance, to improve your experience of cellular antenna installations during the planning phase and in the field. 


4G/5G Survey Tools: Working with what you have!

We look at how signal testers and other tools can provide real-time and historical data for signal strength and quality, helping you identify weak spots, dead zones, or interference, allowing for informed decisions on antenna choice, placement and cabling.


Remote Management Platforms

Practical demonstrations and case studies of how remote management platforms can be used in transportation applications to effectively manage large national deployments.
