City and Guilds 3667-03-301 Concepts of Designing & Planning Network Cabling Infratructures

Course duration:

5 Days

Qualifications:

City and Guilds 3667-03-301 Level 3 Certificate

From £1250

Course Content

The 3667-03 level 3 certificate is aimed principally at network cabling professionals who are seeking to learn about the design and planning processes in the world of communications cabling.

For existing comms cabling professionals looking to enhance their career and promotion prospects, City and Guilds 3667-03 is seen by many in the industry as the ultimate "must have" qualification.

The Level 3 Certificate in Designing and Planning Communications Networks (3667-03) combines the study of current telecomms and computer data networks, including copper cabling technologies, fibre optic cabling systems and other media . Looking in fine detail at the issues and protocols involved in planning and project management, the course really does "drill down" into the key elements of designing and planning a network.

The distinction between different job roles and responsibilities within organisations has always been the subject of much discussion and debate. However, with the convergence of both technology and expertise within areas of concern such as bandwidth, data security, quality of service, along with the need of a higher level of understanding of Ethernet applications, knowledge of TCP/IP is also examined, and in particular the increased deployment of "cloud computing, and the impact that this places on the communications cabling - all of this is discussed within the course.

- Common definitions in use in the communications cabling industry

- Common classes and standards used in the communications cabling industry

- Ethernet Standards; LAN's, WAN's, MAN's

- The support infrastructure: comms rooms, comms cabinets cable ducting, chambers, trays, baskets, trunking, support poles

- Infrastructure environments

- Common communications cabling Ethernet classes in use

- Underground carrier networks

- Overhead carrier networks

- Radio carrier networks

- Satellite carrier networks

- Free space optical carrier networks

- Internal carrier networks: structured cabling

- Design considerations on the internal physical network
