Course Overview

Course in a Nutshell

The course teaches the protocols and procedures for network optimization based on log file analysis and common optimization scenarios. Increasing prevalence of  mobile broadband coupled with the promise of inexpensive data-based applications  such as Mobile VoIP have made a course such as this mandatory for every UMTS  professional. In this course, you will undertake an in-depth study of the workings of  HSDPA/HSUPA in a UMTS network and learn to optimize HSPA networks by  studying real-life deployment scenarios. Covered are the optimization of web-browsing, data/voice systems, streaming, and mobile VoIP. The optimization methodology employed in class will use log files, hardware, and software tools – some of which are based on open source software.


Customize It!

We can tailor this course to your own needs at little-to-no additional cost. It can be adapted to the information needs and “tech level” of audiences such as network design and optimization engineers, equipment or application developers, and others.


Learn How To

  • Identify the KPI‟s that best characterize the quality of your own network
  • Set the KPIs to suit your organization’s needs
  • Troubleshoot and optimize the network to the target KPI’s
  • Optimize a network with minimum error and maximum productivity
