EDGE Training Fundamentals


EDGE Training Fundamentals Description

A technology that gives GSM the capacity to handle services for the third generation of mobile telephony. EDGE provides three times the data capacity of GPRS. Using EDGE, operators can handle three times more subscribers than GPRS, triple their data rate per subscriber, or add extra capacity to their voice communications. EDGE uses the same TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access) frame structure, logic channel and 200kHz carrier bandwidth as today’s GSM networks, which allows existing cell plans to remain intact.

GPRS is the pivotal technology that brought packet switching to the world of mobile communications. However, it suffers from significant limitations that are both serious and not solvable within the GPRS framework. EDGE, aka “Enhanced GPRS”, overcomes those limitations in truly unique ways. This course will help you understand how EDGE tackles those problems and very effectively at that. You will learn what options are available to the network optimization processes and their advantages and disadvantages

Customize It:

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.
