Introduction:
Mobile Wireless Cellular Communications Training Part II Course – Hands-on

This is the second of three Mobile Wireless Cellular Communications Training Part II courses in a series on mobile wireless cellular communications. This Mobile Wireless Cellular Communications Training Part II course (Part II) begins with an analysis of Radio Access Networks (RANs). This is followed by the topic of modulation schemes, essential to understanding how radio links provide greater efficiency for the RF spectrum used by mobile operators.

The Mobile Wireless Cellular Communications Training Part II course continues with an in-depth look at the radio link channels used in GSM. This is followed by the introduction of two packet-switched cellular data standards crafted by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). The first is General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), considered a 2.5G standard, which is the basis for providing mobility for cellular packet-switched data in 3G and 4G-LTE networks today. The second ETSI standard defined is referred to as Enhanced Data-rates for Global Evolution (EDGE), which focuses on techniques for GSMs air interface. These higher-order modulation techniques were developed to increase cellular data rates, using the same radio link infrastructure.

This Mobile Wireless Cellular Communications Training Part II course concludes with an in-depth look at the 3rd Generation Partnership Projects (3GPPs) third generation (3G) standard, Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS). This standard represents the vast majority of all 3G systems in operation worldwide, today.

In summary, this Mobile Wireless Cellular Communications Training Part II course allows attendees to continue to build on the mobile cellular communications foundations provided in the first course of this series. It shows how mobile cellular standards evolved through 3G and provides the necessary foundation to comprehend the next two generations of standards, 4G and 5G.
