LTE Optimization Training Course with Hands-On Exercises (Online, Onsite and Classroom Live)

This LTE Optimization Training course undertakes an in-depth study of the LTE performance and optimization procedures. We begin with a review of the physical air interface and LTE eNodeB KPI’s. The LTE accessibility KPI’s, including a review of the 3GPP functionality procedures regarding accessibility, are studied next.

This is followed by a discussion of the retainability KPI’s and handover overview. The LTE Optimization Training course ends with an examination of the integrity KPI’s concerning throughput and delay, coordinated with appropriate cell planning tuning and optimization.

Duration: 4 days
