Antennas are a curious topic. Most Wi-Fi professionals don’t give antennas a second thought; that is left for others to figure out. Learning the basics of how antennas function, and why they function the way they do, allows for Wi-Fi Professionals to not only better understand how antennas function as part of a Wi-Fi network, but also when and how they can break the rules to deliver high performing Wi-Fi networks. Join self-proclaimed antenna fanatic, and wireless expert Jim Palmer as he delves all the way back to 1836 to lay the groundwork for the antennas that we use today in this exclusive course from WiFi Training.
