Course Overview

Course in a Nutshell

Performance statistics and KPI’s are an important subject of study for RAN optimizers, performance analysts, and planners/tuners. This course, part of our 3G/4G interoperability series, will help you acquire an intuitive mastery of the 3G and LTE performance metrics and leverage them to plan, revise, optimize, and troubleshoot 3G/LTE networks. As such, this course is a valuable adjunct to the 3G and LTE technology and planning courses.

 

Customize It!

We can adapt this course to your own technical environment.
It can also be shortened to five days by omitting IMS, VoLTE, or other topics that are less important to you.

 

Learn How To

  • Define 3G and LTE KPIs
  • Trouble shoot 3G and LTE networks using performance counters
  • Combine 3G and LTE signaling with statistics and counter performances
  • Revise 3G and LTE plans in light of statistics and performance metrics
  • Better understand and exploit the 3GPP optional radio features
Audience / Prerequisites

Aimed At

Primarily, engineers involved in RAN planning, performance management, QoS, and optimization. However it may also benefit RAN RF tuners and RNC-LTE optimization teams in Network Management Centers (NMC’s) or Operation Management Centers (OMC’s).

 

Prerequisites

Those wishing to take this course should be well-versed in UMTS/HSPA and LTE.
