CDMA2000 Network Planning Training

CDMA2000 Network Planning Training:

CDMA2000 Network Planning Training Course (Online, Onsite, and Classroom Live!)

The CDMA2000 Network Planning Training course will give the technical professional the required knowledge and background to perform RF network planning activities for a CDMA network.

The CDMA2000 Network Planning course is intended for those individuals familiar with the CDMA Air Interface Standard, either IS-95 or CDMA2000, but desiring to understand the basic concepts behind planning a CDMA network. Topics covered include link budgets, propagation models and traffic modeling, and a review of available network planning tools required to successfully plan a CDMA network.

The specifics of CDMA network design are introduced; including PN planning, soft hand-off control, hard hand-off planning, packet zone planning, spectrum planning, and site selection criteria.

CDMA2000, also known as IMT-CDMA Multi-Carrier or 1xRTT, is a code-division multiple access (CDMA) version of the IMT-2000 standard developed by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). The CDMA2000 standard is third-generation (3-G) mobile wireless technology. The world’s first 3G commercial system was launched by SK Telecom (South Korea) in October 2000, using CDMA2000 1X.
