Course Objectives

4G / LTE has become the most successful mobile wireless broadband technology, serving over one billion users as of the beginning of and handling a wide range of applications. The first wave of 4th Generation systems is being deployed over the world, providing a vehicle for broadband mobile services at any time, any place and anywhere with mobile traffic still growing and the need for more sophisticated broadband services.

This workshop is specially designed to provide a helicopter view of LTE/4G along with all aspects of the technology released in LTE Advanced including Carrier Aggregation, MIMO Solutions, the use of Relay Nodes, Coordinated Multipoint operation (CoMP) and how HeNB will be integrated to increase coverage black holes.

After successful completion of this workshop, participants will be able to

  • Gain a comprehensive understanding of LTE/4G technology and its implications for the ICT Industry business
  • Understand major key features in LTE-Advanced as well as network architecture and components.
  • Learn All-IP based architecture as well as 4G LTE services such as IMS, VoIP, IPTV, and mobile TV etc.
  • Differentiate among 4G, 4.5G and 4.9G
  • Identify the enhancements required in an LTE network to migrate to LTE-Advanced
