LTE and LTE Advanced
This course presents up-to-date information on the 4G LTE/LTE-Advanced technology and the corresponding 3GPP standards.
Participants will be led to examine the key features of the 4G wireless technology, specifically Release 10 to 12. Multiple antenna technology including Coordinated Multi-Point, Carrier Aggregation (CA), and Heterogeneous Networks (HetNet) and Self-Organizing Networks (SON) will also be discussed.
This course also covers evolved all-IP core, QoS mechanism and transport network architectures and technologies, as well as applications such as VoIP, M2M and integration with the Internet.
