The iGT Network Planners course is for communications planners responsible for the deployment and sustainment planning of iDirect-based satellite networks. The course content takes communications engineers/planners through the basics of iDirect Technologies, discusses iDirect functions and features and provides basic understanding of satellite and network fundamentals. These fundamentals allow the development of iDirect Network planning and design skills.
Students examine mission requirements through multiple real-world case studies and convert them into optimum network designs. Each case study is coupled with hands-on exercises using the iDirect Network Planning Tool (iNPT). Traffic characteristics and the satellite link budget are translated into the best-suited network topology to determine hardware and space segment requirements.
Students analyze customer application characteristics, IP traffic and bandwidth assumptions, IP QoS and service level objectives and map them to the appropriate advanced iNFINITI product capabilities.
iDirect Broadband VSAT networks are dimensioned and optimized for maximum availability, scalability, flexibility, and performance.
