Available to book now, the Designing Ethernet & Wireless Networks training course is a brand-new addition to the to the CEDIA education programme, allowing technology integrators to further their industry knowledge and develop their careers in this ever-evolving sector.

Matt Nimmons, Managing Director of CEDIA EMEA comments: “We’re constantly evaluating and expanding our education offering to ensure that industry professionals are up-to-date with the latest developments. With the demand for connected homes growing, it’s crucial for technology integrators to understand the fundamentals of any home network design. This new course is set to boost industry professionalism, whilst providing an additional pathway toward CEDIA Certification.”

Designed for those with existing knowledge of IP and networks, this one-day course will arm attendees with the skills and knowledge they need to build a robust network for the home. It explores all aspects of modern networks, including traffic flow, infrastructure planning, connectivity options, and planned redundancy, considering both retrofit and new build properties. Additional topics include; power planning, equipment location and rack design, testing strategies, and upgradability.

During the session, attendees will work in groups to develop a robust network that will be stable for a list of connected host devices. Wired and wireless connectivity will be included, as well as host devices from the AV, computing, and mobile world.

This course is ideal for those working towards the CEDIA Networking Specialist Certification (ESC-N). There are no prerequisites to take the course, although it is recommended that delegates attend CEDIA's Networking School first.

The course agenda is as follows:

  • Introduction to CEDIA and course agenda
  • Relevant network topologies and their applications in an IP network
  • How to evaluate network need by analysing occupant behaviours
  • Predicting likely bandwidth needs for individual and groups of host devices
  • Designing a wired network that meets the present and probable future needs of specific client
  • Proposing a wireless network that meets the needs of likely host devices
