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.
During the course you will learn about:
- Network fundamentals
- Access networks
- Cloud computing
- Routing and switching
- How the internet works
- Broadband access
- NBN overview
- Voice networks
- LTE and 4G
- 5G overview.
By the end of the course you will be able to explain the following key concepts to a peer:

- Fixed and wireless networks and implications of network "virtualisation"
- Traditional ADSL 2+ broadband, NBN Fibre to the Node/Curb (FTTN/FTTC), HFC and Fibre to the Premises (FTTP)
