LTE Cell Planning and Optimization using Planet Planning Tool


By attending this course, participants will learn how to calculate link budgets and undertake cell planning for users in the cell edge (under worse case scenario).

Network interference is a critical factor to be considered and therefore needs to be account for in the throughput calculation and frequency planning with the scheduler.

Through mastering such techniques, participants will learn how to improve throughput optimization and end-user experience.

Instructor-Led Training
[Classroom: 5 days / LIVE Virtual*: 35 hours]
  • A minimum of 6 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.
