LTE Cell Planning and Dimensioning

Course Objectives:

This course “LTE Cell Planning and Dimensioning” is designed to accommodate the earlier versions of mobile access technologies such as UMTS and GPRS and, at the same time, prepare the students for LTE and VoLTE implementation.

Cell dimensioning in an LTE network is critical due to the different types of services that can be offered by LTE.

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.

Course Overview:

This course provides an Introduction to the Long Term Evolution (LTE) or 4G cellular network.

The radio channel conditions, RF propagation and frequency planning will be presented at the start. Subsequently, students will be introduce to the practical issues on air interface that can be resolved by OFDM/MIMO.

Link budgets, cell edge and capacity coverage principles are explained and described in detail. Attention is also given to post processing techniques like KPI analysis and troubleshooting.

These various techniques covered in this class will equip students with the necessary knowledge in handling post processing tools and developing ideas which are useful to optimising radio access network with real network traffic.

Key Benefits:

Students will be presented with materials that are detailed and in-depth, along with exercises, puzzles and case studies.

Interesting group activities will be included to enrich the learning experience and drive home the essential points.

Materials can be further customised based on the background of the participants, making new ideas easier to learn as well as relevant to their daily work.

Printed participant slides handbook will be provided.

Pre-Requisite for Participants:

LTE principles – overview is recommended.  LTE air interface is also recommended.

Who Should Attend?

This course is suitable for:

  • Mobile Networks Engineer who would like to “fill in the holes” and catch up with LTE planning and optimizing principles.
  • Radio network planners who would like to learn more about the e-UTRAN.
  • Multimedia Engineer who would like to learn the concepts and theory of LTE-SAE that transports your services to the users.

Course Duration:

5 days
