Course Overview:

LTE RAN Signaling Training Course hands-on

This is the second in our series of LTE Signaling Training courses on LTE aimed at technical audiences. The first one, LTE/SAE: A Technology Overview, is a recommended prerequisite. This LTE RAN Signaling Training course provides detailed information on the signaling layers in the LTE air interfaces including the channel structures and the mapping up to the physical layer.

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of this LTE RAN Signaling 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.
