UTRAN Network Technologies and Architecture
4 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Mobile Networks (Insoft Specials)

Course Details

The UTRAN Network Technologies and Architecture course provides planning and optimization skills for the UMTS Radio Access Network (UTRAN). This course also provides a global overview of all the UTRAN technologies, starting from the Air Interface, then network protocols analysis, ending with Network Elements description within different UMTS releases.

The practical activities include UTRAN signal and traffic flow analysis, with reference both to the Circuit-Switched and Packet-Switched part of the network. Furthermore, there will be High-Speed connectivity real-time tests to discuss QoS and resource allocation issues.
