This course is designed to give the delegate an understanding of the IEEE 802.11ax deployments which is a high efficiency release and multi-user environment.
Using OFDMA and Resource Units the technology can support multiple users at the same time by allocating resources in advance.
We will investigate the requirements to allow multi-user in what has historically been a one at a time technology.
Starting with a brief overview of WLAN in general we will identify the necessary changes to existing frame structures and other measurement procedures to allow for multi-user deployment and future deployment and integration with the 3GPP 5G Core Network environment.


Upon completion of this course the delegate will be able to:

Understand the basic WLAN procedures such as NAV Timers and Back-Off Timers

Understand the basic deployment of OFDMA technology

Explain the Data Frames, Management Frames & Control Frames required for WiFi 6

Understand the basic concepts of MU-MIMO

Explain BSS Colour & Spatial Reuse
