TETRA RF Network Planning Training

This is a two day TETRA RF Network Planning Training course that is focused on carrying out RF and capacity planning for TETRA-based networks. The course presents a methodology for creating a greenfield network starting with a flat earth approximation. As the first point in any major investment is the initial business plan, there must be a fusion of technical specification parameters with budgets. Having passed this point, more detailed planning can take place, based on a planning tool, propagation models, drive testing, etc.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
