H7216A/B-207 Digital Microwave Radio Basics
Audience: Test technicians and test engineers new to the area of RF and Microwave.
The course gives an overview of the microwave radio systems that are in use today. They are used as part of the general telecommunication network, and we find them more and more in the GSM world. Especially in UMTS it is expected that more fixed links will be installed.
