The UMTS Radio Interface course is focusing onthe physical layer of the UMTS radio access as defined in the release 5, 6 and 7 of 3GPP Standards. From Release 5 onwards, High Speed Downlink Packet access has been an inseparable part of UMTS air interface. The course tries to build up the concepts of UMTS WCDMA based air interface and later introduces the changes that occurred with HSDPA (release 5), HSUPA (release 6) and Evolved HSPA (release 7).
It provides an understanding of the WCDMA access method and how the generation and allocation of codes are handled in UMTS. Further, the different types of channels used in the UMTS radio access are discussed as well as the physical channels.The various physical layer procedures such as cell search, random access, packet access, dedicated channels establishment and power control are described.
Release 7 focuses on the improvement of HSPA standard towards higher data rates, lower delays and lower consumption of UE battery power. These features are discussed in the eHSPA section of the Course.
General UMTS System knowledge is required. For background knowledge, the Apis course UMTS System Overview is recommended. Any previous knowledge of HSPA Principles is helpful but not mandatory.
