LTE RAN Signaling And Operations For UMTS Operators


Long Term Evolution (LTE) is an all-IP wireless system that promises dramatic improvements in throughput and latency. The LTE enhancements are based on several fundamental pillars: a new air interface (OFDM+MIMO), simplified network architecture and efficient air interface structure and signaling mechanisms. This course takes a detailed look at various call scenarios of the LTE radio network using signaling messages and related parameters. It provides details of system access, initial attach, default/dedicated bearer setup, handovers and inter-RAT operations. At appropriate instances, the LTE operations are compared with similar operations of 1x/1xEV-DO or UMTS networks. This course utilizes several hands-on experience, a drive-test tool, and ultimately concludes with a certification assessment.
