Transmission Network Intermediary Course (TNIC) Description

TNIC covers the Transmission Network of the Mobile Network and it is made up of two main modules: Transmission Architecture and Concepts & Principles.

Transmission network is that part of the transport network which is responsible for the transfer of lower-level (up to Layer 2) traffic using guided and unguided media.
