Overview of Mobile Network and LTE/Transmission Technologies

Telecom professional enabling 3G, 4G, and 5G mobile networks

This correct dimensioning of the transport network is critical for ensuring Quality of Service (QoS) and capacity, given the traffic created by cellular coverage areas.

In this course, participants will learn the several technologies that can be implemented to optimize the transport network’s performance and capacity, such as IP over ATM or IP over Ethernet. They will gain an in-depth understanding of mobile packet backbone network solutions, with case studies to illustrate diverse techniques. By mastering these techniques, participants will be able to contribute to end-to-end user throughput optimization.

This course is specifically designed for transmission design engineers who wish to deepen their knowledge of LTE IP transport network solutions.

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.

There are no upcoming course dates currently scheduled for this course. If you are keen on attending this course, please register your interest and indicate your preferred start/end training dates via our course enquiry form for us to open a Classroom/LIVE Virtual class schedule for this course.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate a deep understanding of LTE IP transport network solutions 
  • Evaluate the dimensioning of the transport network to ensure QoS and capacity in cellular coverage areas
  • Identify and select appropriate technologies to implement, such as IP over ATM or IP over Ethernet
  • Apply mobile packet backbone network solutions to optimize end-to-end user throughput
  • Master techniques for end-to-end user throughput optimization and improve the transport network’s performance and capacity
