CDMA Network Planning Training Course Description

The CDMA network planning course will give the technical professional the required knowledge and background to perform RF network planning activities for a CDMA network. The CDMA Network Planning Training course is intended for those individuals familiar with the CDMA Air Interface Standard, either IS-95 or CDMA2000, but desiring to understand the basic concepts behind planning a CDMA network. Topics covered include link budgets, propagation models and traffic modeling and a review of available etwork planning tools required to successfully plan a CDMA network. The specifics of CDMA network design are introduced; including PN planning, soft hand-off control, hard hand-off planning, packet zone planning and spectrum planning and site selection criteria.

CDMA2000, also known as IMT-CDMA Multi-Carrier or 1xRTT, is a code-division multiple access (CDMA) version of the IMT-2000 standard developed by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). The CDMA2000 standard is third-generation (3-G) mobile wireless technology. The world’s first 3G commercial system was launched by SK Telecom (South Korea) in October 2000, using CDMA2000 1X.

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
