LTE/SAE Technology Training:

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

This LTE/SAE Technology Training course, aimed at a technical audience already familiar with WCDMA/HSPA, provides an overview of the 4G LTE technology.

In this LTE/SAE Technology Training course, we will undertake a detailed study of the Evolved UMTS Radio Access Network (E-UTRAN), 3GPP Release 8. To help you get the most out of this discussion, special attention will be paid to the principles of Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) systems that are key to a full understanding of the LTE radio interface physical layer.

Discussion of the new access network architecture, with its various interfaces and protocol suites, and an overview of the network entities and interfaces defined for the EPC (Evolved Packet Core) network (3GPP work item System Architecture Evolution or SAE) complete the course. All in all, the LTE SAE Technology course will provide you with a great foundation for working with or advanced study of LTE technology.

Customize It:

  • If you are familiar with some aspects of LTE/SAE Technology, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
  • We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the LTE/SAE Technology course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
  • If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the LTE/SAE Technology course in a manner understandable to lay audiences.
