Wireless Fundamentals Training Course

Wireless networking has become one of the fastest growing segments within the computer industry.

Wireless signals are important because they can transfer information such as audio, video, data and our voices and data without the use of wires. Wireless signals are electromagnetic waves travelling through the air. These are formed when electric energy travels through a piece of metal (for example a wire or antenna) and waves are formed around that piece of metal. These waves can travel some distance depending on the strength of that energy.

The types of wireless technologies are numerous and include:

  • AM and FM radio
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • Traditional
  • Two-way radio
  • Satellite signals
  • Television
  • Cellular phones
  • IoT

Wireless communication provides an exchange of data without any conductor through RF and radio signals. The information is transmitted across devices over just a few feet to hundreds of miles through well-defined channels.

In wireless engineering different electromagnetic signals are used depending on their wavelength and frequency. For example, radio frequency (RF) is a type of electromagnetic transmission used in wireless communication. These signals are easily generated ranging from 3kHz to 300GHz. RF signals are popular for wireless communication because of their ability to travel long distances and penetrate through objects.

Although sometimes overlooked in wireless training fundamentals, antennas are key elements.

An antenna is a device that radiates radio waves when supplied with electric power, and/or a device that converts radio waves into electric power. One of the simplest antennas is called a “half-wave dipole,” is ½ wavelength long, and is constructed of two halves, each of which is ¼ wavelength long. Each of the two halves is fed by a separate conductor in the feedline.

While most are familiar with home routers for Wi-Fi or even small cells for 5G networking, not everyone realizes how far reaching wireless technology has become.

Like in space.

The process of wireless technology for satellite communication begins at an earth station. Here an installation is designed to transmit and receive signals from a satellite in orbit around the earth. Earth stations send information to satellites in the form of high powered, high frequency (GHz range) signals.

The satellites receive and retransmit the signals back to earth where they are received by other earth stations in the coverage area of the satellite. Satellite’s footprint is the area which receives a signal of useful strength from the satellite.
