Uniprise Enterprise Network Design [SPUEND]

To become an Enterprise Network Certified Systems Designer, you must have successfully completed this online course. The Enterprise Network Design Training Program is designed to assure that the network designer is qualified to properly design the Enterprise Network (both inside and outside plant) using products that comprise a Uniprise solution.>

Estimated study time: 20 hours

Webcast duration: 9h:58m


The webcasts for this course are available in the following languages:

 Chinese Danish Dutch Finnish French German Hungarian Italian Japanese Korean Portuguese Russian Spanish Swedish Turkish

plus additional languages available for asssessments.


Those designing, specifying or project managing Uniprise solution Enterprise infrastructure projects will find this a useful addition to your knowledge.

Pre-requisite experience:

No Pre-requisite knowledge is required for this course. It is useful if you have an understanding or exposure to the Enterprise infrastructure market.


  • Introduce CommScope, industry codes, standards, regulations and methodologies.
  • Learn the Uniprise solution, its products and the best practices required to install and test it so you may better project manage an installation and assure a quality installation.
  • Understand the Network planning process and administration requirements.
  • Learn more about the bidding and estimating process for an Infrastructure project.

Key Topics:

The Uniprise suite of courses are built from a pool of modules as opposed to lessons, the modules included within this course are:
