WCDMA and GSM Interoperability Tuning Training

WCDMA and GSM Interoperability Tuning Training:

WCDMA and GSM Interoperability Tuning Training Course Hands-on (Online, Onsite, and Classroom Live!)

This WCDMA and GSM Interoperability Tuning Training course will begin with a review of the basic cell selection and reselection behavior of mobile handsets in the network, idle mode behavior from the WCDMA and GSM/GPRS/EDGE point of view, and the parameters that control the cell reselection principles for inter- technology networks.

Next, you will study the measurements that the MS performs in GSM/GPRS and WCDMA networks in busy mode as well as signal strength definitions and QoS evaluations.

This will be followed by a discussion of the handover evaluation algorithm, including specific features that could change the order of the basic ranking list, and the parameters that could drive selected handovers from the GSM -> WCDMA network. We will also study the WCDMA triggering events that could lead to WCDMA -> GSM handovers according to specific formula requirements. The course will conclude with a discussion of the appropriate GPRS WCDMA cell change principles.

Operators of heterogeneous GSM/GPRS-WCDMA/HSPA networks face the challenge of setting up WCDMA network parameters for well-tuned network interoperability. This is crucial since wrong tuning of the parameters can lead to network overloading in idle (cell selection/reselection) or busy mode (handovers or cell change) of operation and dropped calls or session delays due to excessive outage periods. Appropriate parameter setting depends not only on certain general principles but also on the operator’s network architecture and design strategy. So simple rules of thumb are not often available.
