Course Overview:

LTE Network Planning Training Course Hands-on

In this LTE Network Planning Training course, you will learn the key principles of cell planning and capacity calculations for an LTE network. Complete instruction will be provided to estimate LTE capacity and expected throughput considering all of the parameters that affect performance including MAC scheduler and SINR conditions. We will also consider control channels to fulfill certain threshold conditions. We will undertake capacity calculations related to expected bandwidth over IP transport. Throughout the LTE Network Planning Training course, we will use practical exercises and case studies to illustrate the planning concepts and techniques.

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of this LTE Network Planning 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.
