Deploying Private LTE Using srsRAN

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

This is an intensive 5-day course that focuses on the advanced aspects of LTE technology and applications. The following topics will be addressed:

  • Detailed analysis of layer 1 and 2 protocol functions
  • LTE design, planning, deployment and rollout strategies and its relationship with already deployed 3G networks
  • Introduction to LTE optimization of services
  • All-IP network architecture (including insightful introduction of IMS) will be analyzed
  • Practical hands-on with Open Source srsRAN 4G network
  • 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
Instructor-Led Training
[Classroom: 5 days / LIVE Virtual*: 35 hours]
*Note:
  • A minimum of 5 or more participants are required for a company-based LIVE Virtual course to commence
  • LIVE Virtual courses can be conducted for 5 hours or 7 hours daily. Please note that the number of training days will be extended if you opt for 5 hours daily.

This course aims to present up-to-date information on the LTE technology and the corresponding 3GPP standards (up to Release 10). The focus is on the LTE technology, design, planning optimization and its applications. The participants will gain an in-depth knowledge of the LTE technology such that they would be able to confidently launch an LTE network, one that is designed for the next generation of multimedia services. They will be able to access and utilize the lab that has been pre-setup.  Adopting a practical approach through the use of Open Source srsRAN software, course participants will master key concepts and be able to understand real LTE parameter settings upon course completion.

Participants will be able to fully understand LTE technology, its relationship with UMTS and HSPA and its operation. Furthermore, they will be able to address potential network issues and problems that may surface in the real world.
