The antenna is the portion of the radio system found at the top of the tower. Its design, selection and disposition is critical to the success of the wide area radio network that supports today’s and tomorrow’s ‘mobile’ community.

Understanding some of theory behind antenna design is important for anyone who is involved in the design and installation of wireless cellular infrastructures. While one may not expect all to become experts on RF communications, if some of the mystery could be unveiled and the picture seem a little clearer, I hope you would agree that a positive objective would have been met.

That is the aim of a new online course launched in June called SP6910 CommScope Antenna Theory.

Visit the wireless Course Catalog of the CommScope Infrastructure Academy to view this course. It is available in most languages and can be taken in both webcast and mobile compatible versions.
