This course is day 5 of the LTE, LTE-Advanced and HSPA Evolution: System Design and Operation course and can be taken on its own or as part of the 5-day course. For details of the full 5-day LTE, LTE-Advanced and HSPA Evolution: System Design and Operation course click here.
This course presents a technical description of LTE and HSPA Protocols from Release 99 through to Release 7 of the 3GPP specifications including the protocol structures and mechanisms that support HSDPA and the Enhanced Uplink Dedicated Channel (HSUPA).
UMTS protocol analysis software is utilised during the course the output of which will be made available to delegates as required enabling them to analyse detailed logs taken from data-call and IP packet transfer sequences.
The output from the analyser software will be made available in HTML format following the course so that delegates can also analyse the call sessions for themselves following the presentation.

Level and demands
Who is it for?
Hardware / software engineers, system designers and implementation engineers who require an understanding of the UMTS protocol architecture including the changes that will occur with the introduction of HSPA and an insight into the consequences of these changes.
Engineers and Team leaders working in the following disciplines would find the course particularly useful: Protocol Architecture Development; Handset and Network Testing; Software Development; Hardware Engineering; Network Planning; Systems Engineering; Application Development; Service Provision; Network Operation; Chip-set Manufacture; Cell Planning.
Delegates should already have a general understanding of UMTS principles and basic mobile call / network procedures, or have attended the previous 4 days of the LTE and HSPA Evolution: System Design and Operation course.
