CDMA2000 Training Fundamentals Course Description

This CDMA2000 Training Fundamentals course provides the student an in-depth description of the functioning of a cdma2000 system according to the key CDMA standards (TIA/EIA/IS2000-A) and the rationale behind the specifications. CDMA2000 Training Fundamentals Course discussions provide a point by point description of key processes including power control, spread spectrum signal generation, hand-off techniques, call processing, registration, authentication, encryption. Emphasis is placed on new features and capabilities introduced in cdma2000.

Customize It:

● If you are familiar with some aspects of this course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
● We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
● If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the course in manner understandable to lay audiences.

Duration: 3-4 days


Upon completing this course the participant will be able to define CDMA2000 in a 3G context, understand how CDMA2000 (1x, 1xEV-DO and 1xEV-DV) enhances IS-95 networks, list its new services, explain its key aspects and capabilities as an access network, find information in appropriate documents, and suggest its likely evolution into the 3G world.

The detailed descriptions of the radio interface as an elaborate extension of the IS-95 Access Network, the MAC, LAC, and RLP sub-layers, and the behavior of the system offered in the course should allow the participant to, for example, understand dimensioning procedures and predict the consequences of various configurations.
