By 2020, IoT predictions expect that between 20-30 billion devices will be connecting to networks. For anyone who works with passive network infrastructure (cables, connectors, antennas, panels, shelves or frames), this is huge news, presenting substantial opportunities for career growth, knowledge acquisition and training.


What is Passive Infrastructure?

Passive infrastructure… Transmission media… Physical layer… Whatever the term used, how data gets from A to B, relies on the infrastructure technology used; whether in an office building, MDU (Multi Dwelling Unit) or SFU (Single Family Unit); stadium, arena, or campus; central office, head-end or datacenter; or the many types of wired or wireless outside plant (OSP) networks.

The term ‘passive Infrastructure’ denotes the widest possible coverage of transmission media used in networks today – copper (twisted pair and coax), fiber optic, RF wireless and microwave. As the name suggests, the focus is on the parts of the network often hidden in the wall, underground or above the streets, rather than the ‘active’ components of a network that often get most attention. Passive Infrastructure Training is designed to give students a firm grounding in the connectivity used to and from active devices on a network.


Are You Prepared?
