GSM, GPRS, EDGE, and RAN Optimization Training Course Description
In this GSM, GPRS, EDGE, and RAN Optimization Training course, we will study GSM | GPRS | EDGE | RAN optimization in all its complexity, including the network parameters for the idle and busy mode of operation, basic and added radio network features and their characteristics, and desired versus actual network performance considering the interaction between the features simultaneously active in a network. The GSM, GPRS, EDGE, and RAN Optimization Training course will conclude with a discussion of real-life design and optimization scenarios.
GSM, GPRS, and EDGE operators worldwide face the challenge of setting the RAN parameters to achieve optimum network performance. Different equipment vendors choose different approaches to solve the same design, optimization, and tuning problems. Different operators make differing architectural and design choices as well, leading to different parameter configurations. To further add to the complexity, an operator may have equipment from multiple vendors. All this makes it difficult to reduce optimization to simple rules of thumb.
• If you are familiar with some aspects of this GSM, GPRS, EDGE, and RAN Optimization Training 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.
