LTE Advanced

Course description (english, PDF)

Duration: 2 days

Only shortly after the advents of the first commercial LTE networks all over the world the mobile industry pushes the limits still further and already demonstrates in field tests that data rates above 1 Gbit/s are possible. This course enables you to keep up with the development of mobile technology and to shape actively the fascinating mobile business. Particularly you will get a deeper insight in the technological challenges which have to be faced in LTE Advanced. The course deals with the key features like carrier aggregation, enhancements of Multiple Antenna Techniques which boost the data rate above 1 Gbit/s as well as the heterogeneous network structure which is an attractive means to build cost efficient networks. This course covers also in detail the self-organizing network features which become increasingly mature and support the network operators in improving the network performance and saving operation expenditures. The course concludes with an outlook on the further development steps of LTE Advanced.

Target Group/ Requirements

This course is addressed to leading technologists and experts who are at the forefront of the technological development of mobile networks as well as for decision makers who need a deeper insight into the technological challenges of mobile networks of the next years. Good knowledge of LTE is a prerequisite for this course.
