UMTS Network Design & Planning
Book Now - 3 Delivery Methods Available:Scheduled Online Onsite
This course is designed for engineers and planners tasked with planning and implementing a UMTS network. It covers aspects of UMTS evolution, network design and planning and optimisation techniques. At the end of the course, delegates will be able to: - Understand the principles of network design - Understand how to plan and implement a UMTS network - Understand the issues faced when planning the network - Understand the traffic issues that could come with UMTS network
