LTE Advanced

ELP 4010  ★★★

Participants attending this course will discover key features of LTE Advanced technology. First the course briefly presents the LTE of Release 9. Next the course provides detailed explanation on functions added in 3GPP Releases 10 and 11, such as Carrier Aggregation, Enhanced MIMO, Relaying, Collaborative Multipoint and Heterogeneous Networks.

At the end of the training participants will learn about the upcoming new ideas in mobile telecommunications.

Target audience – Who should attend and benefit

The training is addressed to network engineers, consultants and managing staff who will participate in the LTE Advanced deployment in currently operating LTE networks.

Prerequisites – What you are supposed to know prior to the course

Participants are required to have basic knowledge of LTE technology. For background knowledge participation in ELP 4003 LTE Air Interface is recommended.
