UMTS Training | Universal Mobile Telecommunication System Training Course Description

This UMTS Training | Universal Mobile Telecommunication System Training course provides an advanced technical overview of current and coming UMTS technologies. The UMTS Training course examines the principles of CDMA as used in a cellular environment, cell planning considerations, network architecture, channel coding, the Air Interface protocol stack and UMTS Security features.

A 3G mobile communications system which provides an enhanced range of multimedia services. UMTS will speed convergence between telecommunications, IT (Information technology), media and content industries to deliver new services and create fresh revenue generating opportunities. UMTS will deliver low cost, high capacity mobile communications offering data rates as high as 2Mbps under stationary conditions with global roaming and other advanced capabilities. The specifications defining UMTS are formulated by 3GPP

Learn about:

• UMTS services
• UMTS Planning, Architecture, Design and Deployment
• UMTS Air Interface
• IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)
• UMTS Security
• UMTS Billing and Management
• MBMS, DVB-H, Mobile TV, MBMS and DVB-H .

Duration: 2 days

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of UMTS Training, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the UMTS Training 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 UMTS Training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
