LTE and UMTS | HSPA Location Based Services for E911 Training

Introduction:

LTE and UMTS | HSPA Location Based Services for E911 Training

This is an intermediate-level in-depth LTE and UMTS | HSPA Location Based Services for E911 Training course on CDMA/CDMA2000 (CDMAOne, 1xRTT, EVDO) and WCDMA (UMTS/HSPA as well as LTE) with a particular emphasis on the issues of security and vulnerability.

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.
