Introductory

Our introductory training courses in telecoms networks and next generation applications and services cover the whole range of technical solutions and commercial services deployed and being developed in public telecommunications networks. They include training on xDSL, MSANs, GSM, UMTS, VSAT, IP, IPTV, triple-play services, IP-VPNs, VPLS, IP security, and telecoms regulation.

They typically last 2 days, and form an excellent foundation for staff going on to study specific topics in more depth under the other training categories. Many of our introductory telecoms courses are offered as public training courses at our main training centre at Green Park, Reading.
