Webinar Description

  • This webinar provides a fast track to the concepts and technology of the latest extensions of the WiFi-family, which are 802.11ac and 802.11ad.
  • The webinar starts out with a review of WiFi-technology and the various evolutional steps since the initial WiFi-release 802.11-1999. This part contains a review of the most important operational principles of WiFi, namely a comprehensive description of CSMA-CA.
  • With all this information available, the webinar moves on to an introduction of 802.11ac and ad technology. After this chapter, the students are prepared for a detailed consideration of the core portion of this course...
  • This core portion consists of the following two chapters, dedicated to the PHY-layers of both, 802.11ac and 802.11ad. Despite the rather short duration of a webinar and based on our didactic many years experience, these two chapters provide a very comprehensive inside view to the "how's" of both technology enhancements.
  • An essential part of these two chapters is the live calculation of the maximum throughput rates of both technology extensions, based on the technical enhancements.
