Course Overview

The course opens with an introduction to the 4th cellular generation technologies – what drives their development and the new capabilities they brings.
Taking a functional-oriented approach, we’ll go through the main functionality the new LTE Access and Evolved Packed Core expose.
As an All-IP network, data handling in EPS is crucial, but we’ll also see what options are there for the service provider to handle voice calls.
We will discuss how the network’s Quality Of Service and Radio Resource Management mechanisms enable different applications, each with its own characteristics.
We’ll discuss security and mobility functions, and we’ll sum up with a quick review of how all the functionality we have covered, actually brings the 4G anticipated performance improvements.

Who should attend?

The seminar is built for Technical, Marketing and Business Development people of the Telecom Service Providers as well as Manufacturers of LTE equipment.


Basic knowledge of telecommunications is expected from the participants.
