LTE Advanced System Techniques Training Course Description

LTE Advanced System Techniques Training provides a technical overview of LTE-Advanced including motivation, major new key features such as as carrier aggregation, enhanced advanced antenna techniques for the DL/ UL, relay repeaters, and coordinated multipoint (CoMP) transmission and reception, requirements, network architecture, security, coverage, performance, required enhancements in LTE and migration strategies for LTE-Advanced deployment. LTE–Advanced provides higher bitrates in a cost efficient way and, at the same time, completely fulfill the requirements set by ITU for IMT Advanced, also referred to as 4G. 4G LTE or LTE-Advanced was specified initially in Release 10 of the 3GPP standard in 2010.

LTE-Advanced supports wider frequency bandwidths (40MHz or more). Carrier aggregation was introduced in Release 10 to allow combining multiple pipelines together to create a larger single pipeline (provide backward compatibility with LTE ) . This is very similar to 802.11n and 802.11ac/ad or concept of channel bonding for wireline broadband networks. LTE-Advanced LTE Training course provides a technical overview of LTE-Advanced, describing the features such . In summary, this LTE Advanced System Techniques Training course provides a technical overview of R10 and beyond.

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of this LTE Advanced System Techniques 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.
