The objectives are to enhance the quality of information for projects related to the development of broadband infrastructure and to present tools that could be used to identify connectivity gaps and options.
This course is based on two ITU products: The Last-Mile Connectivity Internet Solutions Guide and Broadband Connectivity Toolkit.
The Last-Mile Connectivity Internet Solutions Guide was developed to support the design and development of programs and interventions that address the lack of Internet infrastructure availability in certain areas and high Internet service prices that make Internet connectivity unaffordable for local populations.
Broadband Connectivity Toolkit is a set of methodologies, software tools, and parameters that allows decision makers, network designers, or infrastructure owners to support their decisions about connecting of unconnected.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Understand the steps for identifying and selecting affordable and sustainable technology for connecting a locality to broadband transport backbones (Middle-Mile connections for localities, schools, hospitals, etc.)
• Understand the steps for identifying and selecting affordable and sustainable technology for creating last-mile connectivity for localities.
• Determine a network topology for a multiple objects network
The target audience for this course is telecommunication engineers/technicians, software developers, or government professionals working on strategic/technical projects and/or software products targeting cost-effective, quality, and affordable technical solutions.
