Are you looking to gain a comprehensive understanding of the architecture and operation of the LTE system including the OFDM-based radio interface? This Online Academy programme where you will be given an in-depth, overview of LTE covering the capabilities and limitations of LTE are examined as well as the overall business implications of LTE deployment.
The concepts of OFDMA, MIM and interference management are explained, as are spectrum usage and deployment. The architecture of release 8 LTE network (SAE) is given and the functions of each network node, MME S-GW, P-GW, eNB and interfaces X2 and S1 are discussed. The Evolved Packet Core (EPC) concepts and implementation issues are given to ensure a comprehensive understanding of basic operation, roaming and interworking with 3GPP and non-3GPP systems. Finally, LTE service provision and VoLTE are discussed and used to tie together the capabilities and procedures required of the radio and core network components.
