School of Engineering, GDGoenka University organized an industrial visit of second and third year students of B.Tech Electronics and Communication Engineeringto HUAWEI Telecommunication Private Ltd, Gurgaon on 24th January, 2017. HUAWEI is a Chinese multinational networking and telecommunications equipment and services company headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong. The business areas of HUAWEI include the establishment of IT solutions, leading in network and expansion in devices. The company has its tentacles spread over 150 countries.
The industrial visit started with a presentation, briefing the students about the latest telecommunication statistics, information and communication technologies currently in use and the certified training courses offered at HUAWEI telecommunications. The presentation was focused on ICT (Information Communication Technology) industry. The essence and presence of ubiquitous communication coupled with digital flood was explained in detail. The evolution of telecommunication was discussed, starting right from down the timeline when ‘monochrome sets’ and ‘pagers’ were used for calling and messaging separately. The game changing endorsement of ‘Unified Licencing System’ by Government of India which allowed calling and messaging via the same phone was explained. The students understood the different ways to access the internet using the FBB (Fixed Broadband) and MBB (Mobile Broadband) and the subtle difference in the two. Students were awed knowing that 2 billion mobile users thrive. The profit arithmetic of the mobile network operators was explained with the usage value in India.
The three generations of mobile network 2G (1800 MHz), 3G (2100 MHz) and 4G& LTE (2300 MHz) with the two parallel technologies of CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) and GSM (Global System for Mobile) were explained. The emergence of VoIP (Voice OverInternet Protocol) was talked about. The moving forward trend of ICT industry was discussed in three basic patterns; from voice to data, from people to machines & from CT to ICT. The evolution of digital society was brought into light, focusing on the paradigm shift from voice to data. The value chain system was explained via various levels referring to the subscriber and mobile network operator. The students were given a demonstration about how the market value of oneself can be increased in terms of career options available in ICT industry.
This was followed by the lab visit where various data communication modules including HUAWEI Cloud Solution console, BTS (Base Trans-receiver Station), LMS (Live Management System) for transmission networks were demonstrated. During the visit, the students witnessed the HUAWEI cloud environment setup to provide cloud computing solutions and the various disk array, role of L2 and L3 switches, routers, console cable, routing paths, simulator, switching parts, carriers, baseband unit, BTS, LMS, BTS to BSC transmission, optical transport network used in signal transmission. The visit was quite informative for the students as they were able to understand and correlate their theoretical knowledge with recent application trends and career options available in ICT industry. Industrial/research lab visits, guest lectures, hands-on workshops and project based learning are some of the highlights of different programs offered at GD Goenka School of Engineering.
