Course Overview

Course in a Nutshell

In this course, you will build on your existing knowledge of UMTS-FDD networks by learning the structures added by TDD. The relationships between the logical channels, transport channels, and physical channels build on the corresponding relationships of the FDD mode, but they do bring in some added complexity, along with the added capabilities. We will discuss how to exploit these capabilities to come up with good network designs, trouble shoot performance problems, and identify solution approaches. This will help you do a better job of designing and optimizing UMTS-TDD networks as well interface more effectively with the equipment vendors.

Audience / Prerequisites

Aimed At

Those with some UMTS background who wish to learn more about UMTS-TDD.



  • “T-Mobile CZ operates a nationwide 2G/3G network. When we were looking for UMTS-TDD training some time back, 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 Optimization and Testing at T-Mobile Czech Republic
