Teleman On Site Lab

The objective of the onsite lab is to provide students a practical overview of the items used at a cell site. To enable this Teleman has tied-up with several facilities/labs in India to provide the desired exposure. As part of the course student visits will be organized to any one of the facilities based on their availability.
