Course Overview

Course in a Nutshell

This five-day course presents a comprehensive overview of the major contemporary and emerging wireless telecommunications technologies from the perspective not of a wireless network engineer but that of someone engaged in supporting or using wireless networks. The course can be taught at the required degree of technicality, ranging from nontechnical to very technical.

Starting with the basics of wireless networks, it covers GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, LTE, and WiMAX. Also discussed are the key interfaces, Signaling System (SS7), and the applications of wireless. The course can be customized to include the technologies of interest to a particular audience.


Customize It!

This course can be customized to your group by including or excluding technologies as dictated by your own needs and by varying the “tech level” to suit the backgrounds of your group.


Learn How To

  • Learn the key cellular communications concepts that underlie all wireless networks
  • Describe the GSM system architecture
  • Describe the major interfaces
  • Describe SS7 including layers 1-3 and SCCP
  • Describe the operation of GSM, GPRS, EDGE, and UMTS
  • Describe WiMAX and LTE
  • List and describe the major mobile applications




Audience / Prerequisites

Aimed At

Managers and professionals in OSS/BSS, enterprise wireless, and others whose job requires an overview of major contemporary and emerging wireless technologies.



There are no prerequisites, but a degree of ease with technology-related issues and some prior exposure to wireless technologies will be helpful.
