DoceoTech and e-magine communications have jointly introduced online WiMAX
technical training. The first class, titled “WiMAX (News
) MAC and PHY Technical Overview” will be available via the DoceoTech online training center on October 1, 2007.
The class is a technical overview of the Medium Access Control (MAC
) and Physical (PHY) layers within WiMAX. The class covers WiMAX network architecture, processes for network entry, technical advantages of WiMAX MAC and PHY and closes with industry drivers for adoption and the economic benefits of Mobile WiMAX
The embedded WiMAX eGlossary is a useful reference and includes graphics, flash animation and full audio for more than 200 WiMAX terms. A version of this course will accompany the WiMAX Forum RF Network Engineer Certification Boot Camp taught by DoceoTech around the world.
“This course grew from the need to prepare students with the baseline WiMAX technical knowledge they need to hit the ground running in our boot camp courses,” said John Swart, President of DoceoTech. “We've designed it for that prerequisite need, and also as a standalone technical overview for engineers needing something more than a technology briefing but less than an entire two-day course.”
The self-paced class includes approximately 1.5 hours of material and includes a comprehensive online WiMAX eGlossary, notes, search capabilities and interactive assessments.
“The multimedia class presents a good overview with detailed discussions of the technical and economic drivers for WiMAX,” said David Neumann, President of e-magine. “This self-paced online class is provided on a subscription basis so the students have access to replay and review sections as they wish.”
