By 2020, experts predict that between
20 and 30 billion devices will connect to networks thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT). For
anyone who works with passive network infrastructure (i.e., cables, connectors,
antennas, panels, shelves or frames), this is huge news because it presents
substantial opportunities for career growth, knowledge acquisition, and
is Passive Infrastructure?
can also be called transmission media or physical layer. Whatever term you use,
how data gets from A to B relies on the infrastructure technology used; whether
it’s in an:
- Office building
- Multi-dwelling unit (MDU) or single family
- Stadium, arena, or campus
- Central office, head-end or data center
- The many types of wired or wireless outside
plant (OSP) networks
The term passive infrastructure
denotes the widest possible coverage of transmission media used in networks
today – copper (twisted pair and coax), fiber optic, RF wireless and microwave.
As the name suggests, the focus is on the parts of the network often hidden in
the wall, underground or above the streets, rather than the “active” components
of a network that often get the most attention. Passive infrastructure training
is designed to provide students a firm grounding in the connectivity used to
and from active devices on a network.
Without access to
a complete range of passive infrastructure training, adapting to a continually
changing and evolving market is hard. The first eBook from the CommScope Infrastructure Academy explores
why passive infrastructure is important, what training is available for network
professionals, and how easy it is to access it online.
Created to help
individuals and training managers succeed in a growing and evolving environment,
the eBook explores:
main benefits of passive infrastructure training
online training makes staying up to date easier
training benefits that both individuals and training managers can expect
on the best passive infrastructure courses to take
Get your copy of the eBook to better understand the passive infrastructure
that underpins your network, and start making the most of the career and business
opportunities that education in this area presents.
