Wired and Wireless Connections (IP Series Part 3)

This one-hour course Wired and Wireless Connections (IP Series Part 3), focuses on the usage of typical network connection cabling and connectors to properly attach physical security devices onto a client’s local network (LAN). Students will learn the capabilities of Cat5e UTP, coaxial cable, fiber optics, and wireless Wi-Fi technology that can be used to provide Ethernet communications from a remote device into a network’s switch. Proper selection of tools and testers is included, along with measurable distance and performance standards that must be adhered to for proper network performance. We will also teach about programming of Wi-Fi devices so they are enabled to communicate with a client’s Wi-Fi system.

Product Description / Course Objectives

Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP), Ethernet over Coax, Power over Ethernet cabling, fiber optics, and Wi-Fi are all new technologies now available for the electronic security industry. These types of cable and connectors require different techniques and tools for proper performance to be achieved. Industry technicians need the knowledge of the different types of connectivity that are available so that they can provide their client’s with the most effective and functional installations. With millions of feet of existing coaxial copper cable and fiber optics electronic security company personnel must become knowledgeable on how to install physical security devices onto these existing cables, saving their clients substantial installation costs.
