Course Overview

Course in a Nutshell

High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) has been gaining popularity throughout the wireless operator community and deployments are ongoing worldwide.   Operators who have deployed WCDMA/UMTS will be able to offer subscribers faster data rates, in the range of 1 to 5 Mbps, and with the introduction of Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology, up to 20 Mbps access is possible.  HSDPA includes Adaptive Modulation and Coding techniques, fast cell search, Hybrid ARQ (H-ARQ), and advanced receiver design.

This course is an advanced tutorial designed to build on the foundations laid in out introductory HSDPA course or on the design/deployment knowledge already acquired in the field.  In this course, we will take a deeper look at frame structures, timing and synchronization of the network, technology enhancements, and the operation of such features as H-ARQ.


Customize It!

For little to no extra charge, you may customize this course to the needs of audience groups such as: RF and network design and optimization engineers, chipset manufacturers, R&D personnel, managers and executives, planners and strategists, sales and marketing personnel, and operations and support staff.


Audience / Prerequisites

Aimed At

Engineers and others responsible for the planning, design, and deployment of HSDPA technologies and who possess some prior exposure to UMTS and HSDPA.
