LTE Radio Network Planning

Course description (english, PDF)

Duration: 2 days

Due to the system properties of LTE, the efficient basic planning process plays an important role for network quality and possible data rates. Also the constant coverage extension of the network and changing usage patterns require continuous optimisation and is an additional permanent challenge.

Accordingly, in addition to the introduction to the basics of radio network planning and its system and hardware dependencies, this course offers in a supplementary chapter possibilities for network optimisation. Subjects such as planning and optimisation of coverage, capacity, and network IDs will be explained.

After the course the participants will know about and understand the background of radio network planning. The participant will be able to make sound decisions for the possible usage of software tools. This course teaches knowledge and techniques which are relevant for planning and are independent of particular planning tools.

Target Group / Requirements

This course addresses employees in the area of radio-network planning and optimisation who have sound basic knowledge of GSM and/or UMTS.
