Deploying Private LTE Using srsRAN

Software radio engineer points to computer screen using pen and analyzes the code

This course focuses on advanced LTE technology, covering design, planning optimization, and practical applications. Participants will gain insights into up-to-date LTE technology and 3GPP standards up to Release 10, with a detailed analysis of layer 1 and 2 protocol functions.

The curriculum includes discussions on LTE design, planning, deployment, and rollout strategies, with a specific focus on its relationship with existing 3G networks. Practical aspects of LTE service optimization are explored, and participants will be introduced to the All-IP network architecture, including IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem).

A significant aspect of the course involves hands-on experience with the open-source srsRAN 4G network. Participants will use the srsRAN software to understand real LTE parameter settings, bridging the gap between theory and practical implementation.

By the end of the course, participants will have a practical skill set to deploy private LTE networks using srsRAN, making them well-equipped for real-world applications.

  • Technical managers who wish to acquire an in-depth understanding of LTE
  • Technical managers who wish to understand the differences between LTE and 3G
  • Development, application and deployment engineers who require a master level of knowledge on LTE
