Course Overview

Are you looking to learn about LTE and what cellular connectivity can do for your bottom line? This 5-day programme will do all that and more! It covers all aspects of LTE core network and radio interface technologies, beginning with an overview of LTE and the role that LTE plays in the future of mobile broadband.

It then goes on to focus on the radio interface and the concepts of OFDMA . The MAC, RLC and PDCP layers are explained, RRC and its relationship with Non-Access Stratum signalling protocols are covered, MIMO and adaptive antennas and the performance benefits they bring to LTE are explored and the basic architecture and functions of the new nodes are examined along with the interfaces that interconnect them. The signalling protocols used on each of the interfaces are covered and procedural examples are also given.
