LTE Signaling Training

LTE Signaling Training:

LTE Signaling Training Course with hands-on Exercises (Online, Onsite, and Classroom Live)

This is the second in our series of courses on LTE aimed at technical audiences.  The first one, LTE/SAE: A Technology Overview, is a recommended prerequisite. This LTE Signaling Training course provides detailed information on the signaling layers in the LTE air interfaces including the channel structures and the mapping up to the physical layer.

What’s Included?

  • 3 days of Introduction to Power System Operation Training with an expert instructor
  • Introduction to Power System Operation Electronic Course Guide
  • Certificate of Completion
  • 100% Satisfaction Guarantee

Customize It:

  • For those with good wireless technologies background but without exposure to WCDMA/HSPA, we can cover the prerequisite material upfront by extending the course to five days.
  • We can tailor the LTE Signaling course to focus on the technology aspects most pertinent to your audience, whether radio/core network engineers, application/device developers, or others.
  • Add a workshop day at the end of the LTE Signaling Training course, for a total of four days, for a deep dive into the transmission network IP backbone issues.

Audience / Target Group:
