LTE RF Radio Access Training

LTE RF Radio Access Training


LTE RF Radio Access Training Course by ENO

This LTE RF Radio Access Training course will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the development, design, and capabilities of the LTE radio technologies and access network. The course will begin with a review of existing 3GPP and alternative technologies. The LTE access network is studied in detail, and a brief discussion of the core network is included as well. The LTE air interface is examined in detail from a technology viewpoint as well as a procedural perspective. The course concludes with a study of LTE operations and procedures and a look at the LTE Advanced functionality.

LTE is a 4G wireless technology standardized by the 3GPP which enables support for broadband connectivity to mobile devices, permitting the delivery of demanding multimedia information to any device, anywhere, anytime. The radio access network and especially the air interface is the major focus of technology enhancements which enable the high bit rate broadband data transfers between the service platform and the mobile devices.

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.
