UMTS-FDD Network Design and Optimization Training

UMTS-FDD Network Design and Optimization Training:

UMTS-FDD Network Design and Optimization Training Course (Online, Onsite, and Classroom Live!)

As UMTS-FDD proliferates worldwide, there’s a growing demand for a good, strong course on the design and optimization of UMTS networks. We created this UMTS-FDD Network Design and Optimization Training course to respond to that need.

In this UMTS-FDD Network Design and Optimization Training course, you will build on your existing knowledge of the UMTS network architecture and operation by learning how to design and optimize a radio network based on the FDD mode of UMTS. We will learn both the user and network equipment protocols.

We will cover in detail the connection of the FDD RAN to the 3G core and IP networks. We will also study in depth the dimensioning and optimization of both the radio and core network parameters. All in all, the course will help you design UMTS-FDD networks that provide optimum performance for broadband wireless services while also being cost-effective.

What’s Included?

  • 2 days of UMTS-FDD Network Design and Optimization Training  with an expert instructor
  • UMTS-FDD Network Design and Optimization Electronic Course Guide
  • Certificate of Completion
  • 100% Satisfaction Guarantee
