This entry-level Radio Frequency (RF) Technologies prepares learners to think with and apply electromagnetic theory to understand the physics that go into radio waves enabling advanced technologies.
There's one underlying technology that makes every part of computing and networking possible, and that's electromagnetism. If you're the kind of network administrator who's not satisfied until you understand all the whats, hows and whys of a technology, this radio frequency training is made to satisfy you.
The way that electromagnetic waves, or radio waves, affect and are affected by the physical world is particularly important for wireless networks, but it's not irrelevant to wired networks either. This radio frequency training exposes and explains the world of electromagnetic waves. With it, you'll understand how radio waves pass through the air, what different frequencies are, how radio waves are modulated to carry information, what circuits can do to change that behavior, and why all of that is incredibly important to IT networking.
After completing this training you'll know how to think with and apply electromagnetic theory to understand the physics that go into radio waves enabling advanced technologies.
For IT managers, this training can be used to onboard new network administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a reference resource.
Radio Frequency (RF) Technologies: What You Need to Know
This Radio Frequency (RF) Technologies training has videos that cover topics such as:
- Connecting radio frequency theory with bigger-picture IT networking
- The underlying physics involved with radio waves
- The relationship between electromagnetic waves and components like transmitters, receivers, filters, etc.
- Circuits and circuit technologies, and their impacts on electromagnetism
- What modulation is, what it does, and why modulation is central to broadcasting
Who Should Take Radio Frequency (RF) Technologies Training?
This Radio Frequency (RF) Technologies training is considered associate-level training, which means it was designed for network administrators with at least a year of experience with RF technologies and experienced network administrators looking to validate their skills.
New or aspiring network administrators. A key thing new network administrators should understand about this training is that even though it's not directly related to one specific aspect of your new job, it's not irrelevant. RF training is about the underlying truths of electromagnetism that make networking and computing possible. After this training, you'll have a deeper understanding of the rules that computers, wired networks, and wireless networks must follow.
Experienced network administrators. This training is perfect if you're the kind of network administrator who feels the urge to take apart gadgets and electronics to get a look at their innards. Experienced network administrators who feel a call to understand more than just how to program a router or wire a network will have a whole new world opened up to them by this RF training.
