Who should attend

Course participants may include those from both technical and non-technical backgrounds in network operations, vendors, service providers, application developers, management staff and engineers in finance, government or commercial services.

About the course

You probably answer your phone, text, send an email or backup a file to the cloud with very little thought involved. But can you explain what's actually going on at the backend during these seemingly simple daily tasks? If you use this technology regularly and are looking for ways to improve your personal and professional productivity, then understanding how it operates and the services it enables could help you manage your current services and identify new opportunities.

This course starts with definitions of packet switched networks, broadband access, email and worldwide web operation – the fundamentals of telecoms technology. Next, you’ll look at ethernet-based local area networks and internet architectures, including an exploration of router functionality and how TCP/IP protocols underpin the internet. No telecoms course would be complete without a review of broadband services, including the national broadband network (NBN), so you’ll spend some time exploring the NBN business model and services. Before the course ends, you’ll also get a taste of mobile network technologies – an overview of 4G mobile voice and data networks and an introduction to 5G.
