Course Overview:

LTE Public Safety Technology Training In-depth

LTE Public Safety Technology Training covers all aspects of  LTE (Long Term Evolution) mobile  technology to be deployed to serve public safety industry covering many regulatory  and public safety concepts supported by LTE technology. LTE Public Safety Technology Training Training is designed for both technical and non-technical professionals. No prior  knowledge in wireless communication is needed. Some sections and chapters about public safety services offered by LTE network are intended to be understood by anyone with no knowledge in wireless communication.

LTE Public Safety Technology Training is appropriate for public safety and  government agencies, mobile operators, wireless vendors and other regulatory institutions worldwide.
