Course Overview:

LTE Radio Access Training Course

This LTE Radio Access Training course will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the development, design, and capabilities of the LTE radio technologies and access network. The LTE Radio Access Training course will begin with a review of existing 3GPP and alternative technologies. The LTE access network is studied in detail, and a brief discussion of the core network is included as well. The LTE air interface is examined in detail from a technology viewpoint as well as a procedural perspective. The LTE Radio Access Training course concludes with a study of LTE operations and procedures and a look at the LTE Advanced functionality.

LTE is a 4G wireless technology standardized by the 3GPP which enables support for broadband connectivity to mobile devices, permitting the delivery of demanding multimedia information to any device, anywhere, anytime. The radio access network and especially the air interface is the major focus of technology enhancements which enable the high bit rate broadband data transfers between the service platform and the mobile devices.

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of this LTE Radio Access 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.
