LTE Capacity Planning Training


LTE Capacity Planning Training Course Description

LTE Capacity Planning Training covers the theory and application of RF planning and designing for LTE RANs. LTE Capacity Planning Training is concentrated on performing RF planning and Design and capacity planning for Long Term Evolution (LTE) based networks. It gives you an in-depth comprehension of how to plan, design and optimize a high quality LTE network. This training helps you to plan and design LTE networks, tools to increase LTE capacity, and how to reduce interference and enhance quality in the LTE network. Through this hands-on training, attendees will use their knowledge of the LTE air interface physical structure and associated principals to measure the link budgets to cover the market and performance standards, and to identify optimal network parameter settings.

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.
