Course Overview

Course in a Nutshell

We created this course to respond to the need for a good, strong course on the design and optimization of UMTS-TDD networks.  In this course, you will build on your existing knowledge of the UMTS network architecture and operation by learning how to design and optimize a radio network based on the TDD mode of UMTS. We will learn both the user and network equipment protocols. We will cover in detail the connection of the TDD RAN to the 3G core and IP networks. We will also study in depth the dimensioning and optimization of both the radio and core network parameters. All in all, the course will help you design UMTS-TDD networks that provide optimum performance for broadband wireless services while also being cost effective


Customize It!

Customize this course to your specific needs at little-to-no additional cost. We offer distinct versions of this course tailored for audiences such as: network design, optimization, and teletraffic engineers; equipment or application designers; less technical audiences such as managers, business planners, marketing specialists, and analysts.


Learn How To

  • Describe the channels and protocols of UMTS-TDD
  • Describe the overall architecture of a UMTS-TDD network
  • Discuss deployment scenarios and radio resource management issues
  • Explain how to dimension a UMTS-TDD radio network
  • Define and use the parameters involved in the optimization process
  • Design and optimize a UMTS-TDD network for wireless broadband services
Audience / Prerequisites

Aimed At

Those with UMTS-TDD background who wish to learn more about the UMTS-TDD network design and optimization process.



  • “T-Mobile CZ operates a nationwide network that uses UMTS-TDD, not a widespread technology. As we started to search for good training, we realized that none of the leading training companies had a course on UMTS-TDD – except Eogogics! They had not one but two good courses. (Of course they also had everything else a wireless operator could possibly want.) We told Eogogics we had a certain blueprint for the course in our mind. No problem for Eogogics! They were very accommodating about putting their two UMTS-TDD courses together, with added/deleted topics, to come up with a comprehensive course that matched our exact needs. When they taught the course, it had an in-depth treatment of everything important to us and imparted critical insights into the technology while also illuminating the why’s and how’s of vendor implementations. And all at a great price! So if you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary and a little more custom than available from an average training company, don’t despair, try Eogogics!” – Josef Fencl, Head of Network Measurement Team, T-Mobile Czech Republic
  • "Covered a broad overview, from top to bottom. Instructor presented from multiple angles, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Course book covered extensive content, with appropriate layout. Very informative! Objective was to prepare for future application; it was achieved. Definitely worth it." – Engineer, US Navy
