The Mobile suite of eight courses discuss the various technical aspects of mobile radio systems.
Introduction to mobile systems
The air interface
GSM mobile networks
GSM data services
UMTS (3G) radio networks
LTE (4G) mobile radio networks
LTE mobile systems
WiMAX radio networks
This e-learning course is designed for those who are, or intend to be, involved in planning or implementing LTE (Long Term Evolution) mobile systems.
You will get the most out of this online LTE course if you already have an understanding of the principles of mobile communications. Therefore, familiarity with the material in the PTT MBA and MBB courses is desirable. You should also have a detailed understanding of 3G mobile systems. It is recommended that the PTT e-learning course on " Third generation (3G UMTS) mobile systems" is studied before attempting this course.
This online LTE course introduce the features, structure and operation of the radio access network and evolved packet core of a LTE (Long Term Evolution) mobile system.
At the end of this course, the trainee will be able to:
Explain the need for mobile systems with capabilities beyond those of 3G and the work of 3GPP to standardise systems to meet those needs.
Explain the development of core network structures through HSPA+ to System Architecture Evolution (SAE).
Describe the role of the functional components of the Evolved Packet Core.
Explain LTE standards for the downlink and uplink of the air interface and why different technologies have been chosen.
Explain considerations applying to frequency allocations for LTE.
Describe processing used over the LTE radio access technology.
