The past year has seen huge changes to mobile networks through the introduction of high speed versions of 3G and the move to lower frequency operation, the shift to all-IP core networks for reduced OPEX and the availability of LTE equipment that offers a true mobile broadband experience. We offer the chance for engineers to become familiar with all these changes through our course that is focussed on the aspects that will be key to the success of mobile network operators.
This three-day course is designed for network operators and planners who want a good understanding of how LTE networks will be designed and deployed. Focus will be on physical deployment link budget aspects across the commonly used LTE bands and we set out typical network KPIs and how the degree of network optimisation will ultimately affect these. We describe how the new OFDMA and SC-FDMA radio technologies compare with HSPA+. We provide an overview of LTE core networks, Relay Nodes and the UE initial cell search, registration and security procedures. The course will appeal to those already in the telecoms industry by developing a thorough understanding of HSPA and how LTE has evolved from that. We present two particularly interesting evolutions of 3G from a European perspective - the standardisation and deployment of femtocells and the refarming of GSM900/1800 to LTE.
- HSPA network architecture
- IP core network architecture and pooling for events such as 2012 Olympics
- How radio resource is managed in HSPA networks
- Cell planning aspects for HSPA at 900MHz and improved coverage footprint
- HSPA link budget and how throughput is affected by position within the cell
- HSPA terminal classes and HSPA+ deployment options
- HSPA and WCDMA KPIs and the effects of cell loading
- Common issues exhibited on HSPA networks
- Products and services that offered by LTE
- Peak data rates, latency and average throughputs of loaded cells
- LTE frequency bands and operators deployment strategies
- Defining link budgets and coverage footprints for LTE sites
- Principles of LTE radio planning and optimisation
- The LTE cell search and network access and attachment procedures
- LTE all-IP core network architecture and signalling
- Mobility management in LTE and the connected mode states
- Security procedures and algorithms used in LTE networks
- Radio resource management and interference management through the X2 interface
- Femtocell and Home Node B standardisation and architecture
- Future network deployments and device trends

Level and demands
The course will appeal to those already in the telecoms industry by developing a thorough understanding of HSPA and how LTE has evolved from that. We present two particularly interesting evolutions of 3G from a European perspective - the standardization and deployment of Femtocells and the refarming of GSM900 to 3G HSPA.
The benefits of this course are:
- Up to date overview of 3G handset hardware, OS's and features compared
- Rules for cellular network planning and capacity estimations derived
- Overview of the protocols used in the network, common faults and debug methods
