WCDMA | HSPA Planning and Dimensioning Training


WCDMA | HSPA Planning and Dimensioning Training Course Description

In this WCDMA | HSPA Planning and Dimensioning Training course, you will study the planning and dimensioning of WCDMA | HSPA networks in all its complexity. We will start with a quick review of the workings of a UMTS network (both WCDMA | HSPA and core part) and follow through with a thorough discussion of capacity (considering both the uplink/downlink traffic for the various services), coverage (including power budgets calculations, margins and losses on antennae and air interface), cell planning (power planning and code planning) and dimensioning. We will also review the WCDMA performance statistics (counters description, KPI’s), performance recording, and performance event handling. The course includes hands-on exercises.

The planning and dimensioning of WCDMA | HSPA networks based on capacity, coverage, and service considerations is not something that can be boiled down to a few simple rules of thumb. For one, WCDMA | HSPA networks provide different services to different customer requirements. But different services impose different capacity requirements on the air interface (link budgets, maximum cell capacity, codes and bandwidth), on the transport network (ATM or IP bandwidth), and on the core network (MSC servers and MGWs). Finally different capacity requirements have different coverage implications. Good planning/dimensioning and pre-/post-launch optimization are key to successful network deployment and operability.

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.
