LTE is being widely deployed and therefore anyone involved in the cellular industry will need a firm grounding in the LTE (Long Term Evolution) and its associated SAE, System Architecture Evolution.
LTE / SAE System Overview course is aimed at professionals in the telecommunications industry who work in all aspects of the business from project and product management through other areas such as business development, marketing, sales through to those who are directly involved in the technology including systems engineers, testing, verification and operations engineering.
The course provides a thorough introduction to the LTE / SAE system. It will enable all who undertake the course to have a good understanding of the concepts and implementation of the LTE / SAE System.
For anyone undertaking the LTE / SAE system overview, it is advisable to have a general understanding of the architecture, terminology and modes of operation of the GSM/UMTS radio access and core networks. A basic knowledge of IP, Internet Protocol is also advised as LTE / SAE has a significant reliance on this technology.
The LTE / SAE System Overview course has been prepared in a way that is easy to understand. It covers aspects of LTE / SAE system including the basic functionality of the Evolved Packet System, EPS. This consists of the evolved Radio Access Network, E-UTRAN and the Evolved Packet Core, EPC as defined in 3GPP Releases 8 & 9.
The LTE / SAE system overview course describes the network architecture, nodes and mode of operations of the Evolved Packet System (EPS). It details the relationship of the EPS to legacy 2G/3G networks as well as the interoperability with them and other non-3GPP networks such as CDMA2000. The LTE / SAE course also details the radio access network for LTE describing he operation of key technologies including OFDM and MIMO.
In order to ensure that concepts and functions are understood, the basic message-level traffic cases are shown throughout the course.
