IES-W1 Industrial Wireless

This course will teach you the basic concepts of the IEEE 802.11 standard. During this hands oncourse, you will learn how to adapt WiFi technology to IndustrialEthernet applications.



IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n Technology Introduction

  • Specifications
  • MIMO
  • Channel bonding

Wifi Antenna Deployment

  • Power budget & distance calculation
  • AP/ Bridge & client mode

Wifi Roaming

VLAN Over Wireless

Dual RF Applications

  • Wireless redundancy
  • Wireless bridging without dropping throughput
  • WiFi operation & maintenance activities
  • Wireless application optimisation


Knowledge in basic networking is required, based on long experiences in the field or previous attendance of the “Layer 2 Networking” (IES-L2) course.

Learning Objectives

This course covers the following:

TCP/IP protocol and general concept

  • Explain the difference between “connection oriented” and “connectionless” mechanisms
  • Explain the concept of TCP/IP protocol suite
  • Describe the roles and mechanisms in each communication layer
  • Describe which networking devices operates in which communication layer
  • Understand the PDU format in Ethernet frame and IP packet
  • Explain how error detection in Ethernet works
  • Describe the difference between “store and forward” and “cut through” mechanism
  • Explain the concept of ”Power over Ethernet” and its standards

Ethernet and IP addressing

  • Explain the interaction of MAC address and IP address
  • Explain IPv4 classes and subnets
  • Calculate IP range, subnet ID and broadcast address in IPv4
  • Explain the interaction of “packet switch communication” and “unicast/ multicast/ broadcast communication”

Application Protocols

  • Understand basic concept of well-known protocols e.g.
  • Describe DHCP communication flows the role of each DHCP packet
  • Understand the function of DNS in IP network
  • Explain the role of ARP protocol in IP and MAC addresses mapping
  • Explain interaction of ICMP mechanism and TTL value
  • Describe the communication components required by SNMP protocol
  • Understand the difference between SNMP v1/2v and v3
  • Explain the difference of SNMP operations

Infrastructure and transmission line

  • Explain basic concept of network topologies
  • Understand roughly the evolution of Ethernet standards e.g., 10/100 Base
  • Understand the basic concept of Ethernet communication over fiber optic.
  • Describe required communication components in fiber optics communication
  • Calculate power budget in optical communication
