802.11 (duration: 1x 3.5 hours)
The objective of the course is to give an overview of Wi-Fi which is accessible to a variety of people working in this area. It will cover the roots of the technology and shall address the latest evolution. Product and deployment insights will be given to help us appreciate the richness of WiFi.
What other students wrote about Dr. Srikanth
“The 2 day web training (6hrs) on WiFi6 (802.11AX) from Srikanth was very informative. His presentation was crisp and clear and was pretty engaging too. The depth and width of his presentation on MAC and PHY was quite right. By attending this seminar, I saved weeks and weeks of 802.11AX document reading. By making the recordings of the presentation available for a limited time, Srikanth offers all the attendees’, a 2nd chance to listen to the seminar and solidify his/her knowledge. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who like to get a good knowledge on the inner workings of WiFi6. I will give 5/5 for Srikanth’s presentation skills”.
