learntelecoms interactive E-learning suite of courses: Course MOG: LTE mobile systems
You will get the most out of this course if you already have an understanding of the role and opera- tion of the functional components of a UMTS (3G) system, and the principles of operation of the LTE radio access network and Evolved Packet Core. It is recommended that the PTT e-learning courses MBE ‘UMTS (3G) mobile radio networks’ and MOF: ‘LTE (4G) mobile radio networks’ are studied before attempting this course.
To describe mobility in, and the provision of services over, LTE (4G) mobile systems. This course also discusses how the enhanced performance provided by an LTE Advanced system is achieved.
Course objectives: At the end of this course, the trainee will be able to:
describe the factors that determine the Quality of Service (QofS) requirements for a particular service and explain how a LTE Evolved Packet System delivers the required QofS with reference to EPS bearers.
describe the role of the various Evolved Packet Core (EPC) interfaces and protocols.
describe the procedures involved with mobility management including handover to other mobile systems such as GSM, UMTS, WiMAX and CDMA.
describe and compare the various ways of providing a telephony and short message service over an LTE mobile system. Topics covered include CS Fallback, VOLGA and Voice over IMS.
describe the benefits of LTE Advanced mobile systems and the techniques employed to provide their enhanced performance such as carrier aggregation, Enhanced MIMO and CoMP.
