Course Objectives

Capacity planning in telecommunication and ICT networks is evolving from the traditional technology-driven approach to a data-driven approach that relates to a balancing act between costs and capacity of IT and Telecommunication networks. Not only a well-designed planning system but a sound capacity expansion strategy is necessary that help drive greater ROI, superior customer experience and operational efficiency.

This workshop emphasizes on details of capacity planning, performance analysis, system sizing, performance measurements, trend analysis etc.

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

  • Understand Capacity Planning problems, processes and methodologies.
  • Explore the fundamentals of teletraffic engineering processes with the emphasis on how those concepts are applied to networking solutions.
  • Emphasize on what strategies can be employed to reduce cost in existing networks while transitioning to 5G and other advanced technologies.
  • Improve, optimize, and maintain network performances.
  • Understand about Demand Forecasting
  • Learn about performance management and how this information can be transformed into a vehicle for forecasting capacity requirements.

Target Audience

This course is specially designed for strategic or technical managers, consultants, communications professionals, system engineers, network professionals, who want to have a better understanding about network capacity planning and forecasting.
