Course Objectives:Participanys will learn the following :
- UMTS/WCDMA and HSPA technology overview
- Cell planning and Coverage planning principles
- Capacity planning calculation as a service dependant procedure separately for R99, HSPA & MBMS
- Coverage optimization, Capacity optimization
- UTRAN interfaces over ATM or IP/Ethernet
- Access transport network capacity planning
- 3GPP Radio features to optimize performance
Course Overview:This course presents the basic principles of WCDMA/HSPA Radio & Access transport network planning and optimization. It will examine capacity and power budget issues, cell coverage planning and transport network planning for ATM & IP interfaces. All planning consideration will be available for R99 CS and PS traffic and also for HSPA traffic. Optimization principles and solutions will be also included, with due consideration for coverage planning or capacity planning optimization. Finally real case studies will be discussed and exercises will also be provided for better understanding of the course material.
Pre-Requisite for Participants:Participants should have a strong background on WCDMA and HSPA air interface, protocols & interfaces and also functionality.
