This course is day 1 of 5G New Radio Specifications and System Design and can be taken on its own or as part of the full 5-day course.
With the explosion in mobile data traffic, mobile networks are needing to introduce a range of extensions to 4G radio technology to continue to provide a good user experience.
This 1-day course explains the wide range of 4G features available within the LTE Advanced umbrella contained in 3GPP Releases 10-12.
We cover the topics of Dual Connectivity and Inter-site Carrier Aggregation, Enhanced Coordinated Multipoint and evolutions of MIMO.
We also explain the benefits of Small Cells, Relay Nodes and Heterogeneous Networks in making the most of the available radio spectrum.
There is the option of purchasing a copy of "LTE Advanced: 3GPP Solution for IMT-Advanced" by Harri Holma and Antti Toskala (Wiley) when you register for this course.
