Introduction to Global Communications

Learn best practices for global communication standards and the networks which support them.

GK# 3851

Course Overview


In this course, you will focus on topics that define worldwide communications standards and the networks that provide the services. Historically, telecom providers built and interconnected their networks with copper-based standards with a main purpose of providing voice services. Today, global communications have evolved and networks are now migrating solely to packet-switched services, leaving behind yesterday's circuit-switching and the copper those networks once depended on.

You will begin with the basics of switching and routing and then cover the complex network topologies of today's service providers. You will then examine the fiber-optic links that provide the fabric for today's communications backbone. You will learn the mobile wireless standards as they transition through the various generations, review satellite networks, and cover the evolution of communications technology.
