Course Description

This unit covers selecting and arranging of wireless access
devices, routers and switches for local area and wide area
networks intended for connection to a telecommunications
network. The unit encompasses selecting compliant
equipment, developing LAN/WAN arrangements that comply
with regulation, based on calculated and deemed-to-comply
solutions and completing network documentation.

- Cable routes are planned to ensure maximum lengths specified by standards and the manufacturer are not exceeded. 
- Cable routes are planned to comply with job specifications and regulatory requirements. 
- Earthing is arranged to comply with job specifications and regulatory requirements.

Element:

2. Arrange locations of equipment and cable routes.

Performance Criteria:

- Reasons for selections made, including calculations, are documented in accordance with established procedures. 
- Wireless networks equipment for arrangement and specifications for all selected items are documented in accordance with established procedures and forwarded to appropriate person(s).

Element:

3. Select cables and equipment.

Performance Criteria:

- The extent and nature of the communications network is determined from job specifications. 
- Safety and other regulatory requirements to which the wireless network area shall comply are identified, obtained and understood.

Element:

4. Document communications network.

Performance Criteria:

- Cables types are selected for suitability for the environments in which they are to be installed, performance required, and regulatory requirements. 
- Cable sizes are selected to meet capacity and performance requirements. 
- Earthing components are selected to meet regulatory and earthing requirements. 
- Evidence is obtained that network equipment selected complies with safety requirements.

Learning Outcomes



Details of Learning Activities

Classroom tutorial activities to consolidate the theory and application of various types of wireless networks, and advanced testing and measuring devices and techniques of wireless networks.
Practical activities to develop skill in construction the working model of various types of wireless networks. Analyse the performance as specification.
Work performance simulation projects involving the analysing of selected systems, development of testing procedure to verify the performance specification in the systems. Specifications will be provided with work simulation (team or individual basis) or may be negotiated to suit a workplace based application

Overview of Assessment

This is a progressive assessment, the students are required to undertake summative assessments as follows:
• Written assignment related to selecting and arranging equipment for
wireless networks
• Practical demonstration in simulated workplace


Assessment Tasks

• Assignment and work performance simulations projects 90%
• Laboratory work 10 %
• A Pass in the Learning Unit when evidence of learning is collected according to the requirements as stated at “assessment criteria”. The documentation must be clearly communicated and submitted to supervisor within specified time.
The assessment is in conjunction with the course of ’Sensors & transducers’.
